Although some authors work at times with large flat dies and evaluate friction under more realistic conditions than usual, pressure is not totally controlled. In any case, cohesive friction does not appear to have been well studied in literature, but pressure and sliding velocity may provide useful information about preventing the cohesive phenomenon in sheet stamping processes. In this work, the coefficient of friction (COF) for DC-05 electrogalvanized steel is experimentally evaluated under lubrication regime by flat face dies. These tests are also considered to reproduce friction conditions in the die-sheet-blankholder system at some stages of the deep drawing process. High pressure condition in a flat friction system can also be considered for studying the friction behavior in the die radius. This work investigates the influence of contact pressure and sliding velocity of the sheet on the COF value. Adhesion tendency during sliding is also evaluated. Sheets were lubricated with a prelube type mineral oil and different lubricant film thicknesses are present on the sheet as a result of the draining off time effect, an aspect that will be evaluated later. Although sliding velocity has almost no influence on the COF value, pressure has an influence that may be expressed by a potential mathematical function. The COF value tends to be constant for high enough pressure values. This behavior may be explained, in part, from the viewpoint of zinc acting as a typical soft metallic lubricant. Sliding velocity is the most important variable from the adhesion phenomenon point of view, which appears more frequently for low velocity values. The draining off time, which some research works consider fixes the initial lubrication conditions in friction tests, has no significant effect when a mineral oil, typically used as a prelube, is selected as a lubricant. The authors found that pressure is the most important variable for the COF value. Velocity is the determining factor for the adhesion phenomenon in friction processes under mixed lubrication.
