Electromagnetic forming is established in the macro world. One special advantage is that in drawing and stamping operations one part of the tool (punch or die) is replaced by an electromagnetic field resulting in reduced tool costs. Furthermore the material behavior changes to higher plasticity. In this research, electromagnetic linked micro part processing is investigated by forming, punching and joining 50 μm thick EN AW-1050A (Al99.5) micro metal sheets.
