Forming process is one of the most promising techniques in sheet metal forming process in which flat sheet is converted into desired component. Formability analysis has to be carried out in order to obtain successful forming components. In this paper the effect of temperature on formability of AA6061-T6 alloy material was estimated by conducting stretch forming operations on one mm AA6061-T6 alloy material sheets at different temperatures. The range of specimen sizes wastaken from 110 mm × 20 mm to 110 mm × 110mm of AA6061-T6 alloy material for experimentation. The experiments were conducted on the sheet metal forming setupat temperatures RT (250C), 1000C and 2000C.The obtained results were compared with the finite element analysis. The data extracted by the simulation results was well matched with the experimentation results.
