Electromagnetic forming is a non-conventional forming process and is classified as a high-speed forming process. It provides certain advantages as compared to conventional forming processes: improved formability, high repeatability and productivity, reduction in tooling cost and reduction of springback and of wrinkling. However, various process parameters affect the performance of the electromagnetic forming system. Finite element simulations are very useful to optimize a process because they can reduce time and costs. With the aim of investigating the effects of the process parameters on the deformed blank geometry, finite element simulations of an electromagnetic sheet bulging test have been performed in this work. Furthermore the role of first impulse of discharged current is also investigated.
