What is Tribology?
Tribology is the science of friction, lubrication, and wear.There is little understanding of tribology; consequently, it requires a systematic approach and a broad knowledge of Chemistry, Fluid Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Metallurgy, and Solid Mechanics.
 
In metalforming, tribology is the critical process control factor. Friction transmits the forces of the press to the work piece to achieve the desired strains. Lubrication is used primarily to control friction and prevent adhesion. It may also function to reduce friction and prevent corrosion.
 
Adhesion is the most prevalent and problematic form of wear. Build up of the work piece material on the die causes uncontrolled friction and may reduce clearances causing high local stresses and part or die fracture.
