In the thin strip coiling process, it is necessary to use a sleeve with a mandrel to prevent excessive deformation of the strip. The stress distribution in the sleeve and strip is an important factor to determine the size of the sleeve. However, an experimental approach is almost impossible because of the accumulation of high pressure. A finite element (FE) model of the strip coiling process was developed in this study. Then, the radial and hoop stresses on the sleeve and strip were investigated using FE analyses. The theoretical values and analysis results under idealized conditions were compared to verify the FE model. The effect of the strip thickness on the stress distribution was also investigated. The radial stress increased by 6.3 times for a 1-mm-thick strip at the coil starting point. The radial stress at the sleeve increased by 14.8 % with a stacked thickness of 90 mm because of the reaction force applied by the mandrel.
