The research is aimed to investigate Bauschinger effect and strain hardening by the application of drawbead-tester. Generally, the drawbead is used to control the material flow into the die cavity in sheet metal forming process. When the material is flowing into the drawbead, it may cause the development of strain hardening and/or Bauschinger effect. This work consists of two main equipment particularly developed for the experiments. They are drawbead-tester and three-point bending device. The drawbead-tester provides the possibility to integrate the optical in-process strain analysis system. Whereas the sheet metal was being formed in the drawbead, the local strain of the sheet metal was evaluated. At the same time, the drawbead restraining and holding forces were measured. The three point bending device and numerical simulation method are used to investigate the Bauschinger effect. In the experiment, the cyclic bending forces were measured and compared with the result obtained by numerical simulation.
