Abstract
Since the last centuries the sheet metal forming mainly focuses on the production of high lot sizes. As part of this process the deep drawing gained a very high stage of development. Forming technologies for small quantities, however, were less pushed. Since at least the 1990s across industries a trend for product individualization began. The variety of variants increased and the part-specific batch sizes declined. Especially in the field of sheet metal forming this change requires a paradigm shift. The paper shows which approaches the Fraunhofer IWU tracked specifically for lowest quantities and how it is possible to produce even the smallest lot sizes automated.
