This chapter discusses the application of advanced modelling tools in the plastic forming and processing of metals. The tools include numerical modelling techniques, such as the finite element method (FEM), and more recently, artificial intelligence techniques, such as various types of artificial neural networks as well as data mining. Examples of real production processes, such as the production of sheet by rolling, deep drawing of stainless steel kitchen sinks, continuous extrusion of electrical conductors as well cutting of metal and tube hydroforming, will be presented. It is shown that defects can be avoided and tool life increased through optimization of plastic forming processes.
