Traditional forming methods are often highly bound to the shape of product by a dedicated tooling. These forming processes offer robust process operation, short cycle times and high geometric accuracy. In contrast, kinematic forming methods are characterized by geometrically indistinct tools while the shape of the product is formed by the motion and position of the tools. These methods bring along high degrees of forming flexibility for the production of product variants. The research question of this paper is which criteria are applicable to systematically quantify and categorize whether the forming processes are kinematic or tool-bound or which ratio predominates over process time respectively. By numerical process simulations, a wide variety of forming methods are considered based on the areas of tool contact and the forming zone. With this methodology it can be evaluated for a given process, which part of the active die faces are shaping the product.
