[en] Single Point Incremental Forming is a sheet forming process that uses a smooth-ended tool following a specific tool path and thus eliminates the need for dedicated die sets. Using this method, the material can reach a very high deformation level. A wide variety of shapes can be obtained without specific and costly equipment. To be able to optimize the process, a model and its material parameters are required. The inverse method has been used to provide material data by modeling experiments directly performed on a SPIF set-up and comparing them to the experimental measurements. The tests chosen for this study can generate heterogeneous stress and strain fields. They are performed with the production machine itself and are appropriate for the inverse method since their simulation times are not too high.
