The paper presents the results of forming rifts in five-layer fiber reinforced metal polymer laminates by electromagnetic forming. During the experimental studies the discharge energy of the electro-magnetic machine was varied in such a way as to achieve different depths of the rift. Samples obtained by electro-magnetic forming were compared with control samples obtained by forming using a rubber pad under static loading. The strain state of the samples was analyzed using an digital image correlation system Vic-3D. The experimental research of fiber reinforced metal laminates forming under the influence of pulse magnetic field has shown the possibility of formability increasing due to change of strain state: the rift zone is dominated by compressive circumferential strains, rather than tensile radial strains as during conventional rubber pad forming.
