Dynamic characteristics of a micro-forming machine system are of significant
importance to be considered if high-precision micro-parts are to be produced. This is because forming tolerances may be within a range of sub-microns up to 5~15% of the thickness of a thin sheet-metal (e.g. <100µm) being used in micro-sheet-forming. Achievability of the quality parts often vary with the machine-system performance and process parameters being set, and it largely depends on the understanding of the machine and tool system’s dynamic characteristics and
effectiveness of the control of the machine and the process.
