Stamping is a core manufacturing process in automobile industry. The measurement of the press force in stamping process has been the major focus of the research in this area. However, it has been established that the press force is itself an integral of the pressure distribution over the contact surfaces. Also full potential of servo-control stamping machines has not yet been achieved due to lack of appropriate sensing functions. In this study, an effort has been made to monitor the stamping process with the help of ultrasonic waves. The waves are employed to obtain the contact conditions between the work piece and the die. It has been shown that the waveforms are affected not only by the workpiece material and its thickness but also by the angle of inclination. Results show that the reflected waves, being more sensitive than transmitted waves, are influenced by the change in work piece related parameters.
