Suitable simulation approaches for the preliminary investigation of the electromagnetic metal forming process are presented. For this purpose an uncoupled (loose coupled) simulation model is compared to a more rigorous sequential coupled approach. As shown by examples, the connection between electromagnetic field and spatiotemporal evolution of the deformation of the workpiece cannot always be neglected to describe the electromagnetic forming process with adequate accuracy.
