This work emphasizes on the geometric and dimensional accuracy of cylindrical tailor welded blank (TWB) components manufactured under warm forming conditions. In this work, TWB sheet material made of austenitic stainless steel (ASS 304 Grade) and deep drawing steel (IS 513 grade) materials were TIG welded before subjecting to stamping operation. Numerical simulations were validated with experimental results. Simulation results were analyzed to check the thickness variation and stress distribution within the component which otherwise would be difficult to measure experimentally. Measurements in terms of geometric accuracy gave encouraging results. The roundness and perpendicularity measurements indicated better accuracy whereas, cylindricity value has slightly improved. However, dimensional accuracy of the parts in terms of thinning, cup height and diameter has deteriorated. It was found that the spring back effect played a significant role in the deterioration of dimensional accuracy. Presence of residual stresses might be the cause for this effect; further studies are needed to address this issue.
