Single-point incremental forming (SPIF) is a quite new sheet-forming process whichoffers the possibility to deform complex parts without dedicated dies using a single-point tool and astandard three-axis CNC machine. Although the process mechanics enables higher strains withrespect to traditional sheet-forming processes, research has been focused on further increasing themaximum forming angle. In the paper, a new approach is used to enhance the material formabilitythrough a localized sheet heating as a consequence of the friction work caused by high speedrotating tool. Numerical simulation was utilized to relate the effect of temperature with the mainfield variables distribution in the sheet.
