Tube hydroforming technology is still considered a new technique growing fast in automotive and aircraft industries. Many researches on all aspects of this process are still required. Contact friction is one of the most effective parameters on tube wall thinning. To successfully fulfill the process without any common defects, it is very important to determine the proper internal pressure and axial feeding loading paths. In this paper, the effect of lubrication on tube wall thinning on ASTM C11000 copper alloy is discussed as well as the effect of internal pressure and axial feeding. An axisymmetric bulged tube is investigated using theoretical, numerical and experimental methods. Improved linear and non-linear pressure and feeding loading paths are applied and the predicted results are experimentally proved. It is observed that non-linear pressure application gives smoother results. Also proper lubrication plays an important role in success of the process.
