In the current study, reduction of springback is quantified and the reasons for the reduction are investigated. The testing involved a digital servo motion applied to a U-draw bending to produce a hat-type product from high strength steels such as DP780 and DP980. The change in springback is compared between the constant speed motion and three kinds of servocontrolled motions during forming experiments. In order to predict the springback for the servo-controlled tool motion, a finite element method was utilized for the springback analysis considering a kinematic hardening model for the steel. The comparison of springback between the analysis and the experiments shows that they have similar tendencies. Also, the analysis results indicate that the springback reduction is greatly influenced by a decrease in the friction coefficient, which originates from the contact and detach phenomena between the tooling and the blank during the up-and-down motion of the upper die following the servo-controlled motion.
