Collections of peer-reviewed papers are always excellent sources of knowledge and new ideas for researchers working in both universities and industry. The present collection, in particular, provides interdisciplinary and international resources; thus encouraging the close cooperation of materials scientists, and manufacturing and computer engineers and promoting the diffusion of research results, and technology transfer, in all areas of Sheet Metal Processing and Characterization.The main focus of this special volume is on innovation in forming processes, high-strength materials and joining technologies. The 72 papers are grouped into chapters on: Hydroforming, Joining , Manufacturing Systems, Micro Technologies, Quality/Surface Conditioning, Tooling, Stamping, Tube-Forming, Incremental Forming, Modelling, Materials and Testing, Drawing, Bending, and Roll-Forming.The volume offers important and interesting insights into R&D issues concerning Sheet Metal Processing: indeed, all SheMet Proceedings provide a state-of-the-art guide to this dramatically important industrial field.
