The Plane Strain Compression Test is used to measure the mean friction shear stress at the sheet-die interfaces. It is found that the shear-stress level is strongly influenced by transfer film formation on the dies. The thickness of these films, and their elementary chemical composition, have been determined by Auger Electron Spectroscopy and rugosimetry. The effect of contact mechanics and lubricant parameters on transfer film formation is discussed.
