Abstract

The application of aluminum alloys in automotive and aerospace industries has been growing significantly in the last 20 years. Due to their high specific strength, aluminum became a strong replacement for steel particularly at automotive manufacturing. However, to deform a complex panel part from aluminum is quite challenging specifically at cold forming condition in which the formability is quite low. Many attempts have been processed to improve the formability problem of the aluminum alloy such warm forming, hot forming, superplastic forming and Hot forming and cold die quench (HFQ) processes. This paper presents a critical survey for different forming methods and identifying the advantages and drawbacks for each method. This review will help researcher to be familiar about the history, development and state of art of metal forming processes of aluminum sheet alloys.
