Electromagnetic crimping is a solid state, high-speed, and high strain-rate joining process. Finite element analysis, as well as experimental study, was carried out on three types of field shapers, namely, tapered, taper-stepped, and stepped. In all three field shapers, the effective length, outer diameter, inner diameter, total length, and materials properties were constant. These field shapers were kept inside the same multi-turn solenoid coil for all the experiments. It was found that the taper-stepped field shaper results better regarding impact velocity, Lorentz force, temperature generation, less heating, and uniformity in crimping among the three types of field shapers.
