This paper aims at presenting an experimental investigation to obtain the optimum formability of light-weight alloys under the multi-stage forming process. Titanium alloy sheets (Ti-6Al-4V) and aluminium alloy sheets (AA5052) are selected as forming specimens. The special fixture with heating device is applied in order to carry out the prestraining process. The swift forming test at warm-forming condition is performed for measuring the limit dome heights after the multi-stage formign process. The outcomes of this investigation are valuable for engineers to design and fabricate high-quality light-weight components efficiently.
