The tribology of hot forming processes is highly critical for the quality of formed aluminum panels and the cost-effectiveness of hot forming. In this report a flat-on-flat experimental technique for tribological evaluation of a single stroke was used to investigate the effect of sliding speed on the operative friction coefficient (FC) and tribological failure of the tribo-pairs used in Quick Plastic Forming (QPF) and warm forming processes.
