Metal forming processes in general can be characterised as repetitive processes; this work will take advantage of this characteristic by developing an algorithm or control system which transfers process information from part to part, reducing the impact of repetitive uncertainties, e.g. a gradual changes in the material properties. The process is highly non-linear and the system plant is modelled using a non-linear finite element and the gain factors for the iterative learning controller is identified solving a non-linear optimal control problem. The optimal control problem is formulated as a non-linear least square problem where the system response is evaluated using a non-linear finite element model of the process.
