Laser Assisted Spin Forming is investigated for improving the poor formability of Advanced High Strength Steel DP-800 and Aeronautic Grade Titanium alloy, with minor or no change in microstructure, final properties improvements and no damage to coating, thanks to controlled energy input and fast thermal cycles. IR imaging and force-torque monitoring are used to characterise the forming process. Residual stress measurement, microstructure, microhardness and EBSD are used to study the formed parts under the combined action of laser and mechanical force. A micromechanism of laser assisted spinning is proposed, as well as advantages and limitations of the technique.
