Abstract: The correlation between material evolution when dealing with blanking process and the degradation of the magnetic properties constitutes a key point in the design of the electric machines. Moreover, the measurement of the magnetic properties currently constitutes a tool for non destructive testing in rise in industry. Within the framework of a project on this topic, our work concerns the development of a predictive tool to establish a correlation between the blanking process, the state of the material which results from it and the magnetic properties of this last. This study lies within the scope of a collaboration between the University of Technology of Compiegne, Laval University (Quebec, Canada) and CETIM and it were broken up into two parts. The first part was devoted to the analysis and modeling of blanking process. Concerning the experimental aspects of work, uniaxial tensile tests at various strain rates made it possible to reach the mechanical behaviour of material and its sensitivity at the velocity. In addition, blanking tests were carried out in order to analyze the influence of different parameters from the process such as the clearance punch-die and velocity (blanking velocity / strain rate). Concerning the numerical aspects, finite elements modeling need the use of techniques and approaches suitable to treat the multiples non-linearity’s present in this kind of problems. In the second part we were interested in the correlation between the mechanical state of material and its magnetic properties following a punching effect. To reach quantities characteristic of the mechanical state of material in the vicinity of the cut edge, nanoindentation tests were combined with technique of inverse identification. In addition, magnetic measurements carried out on tensile specimen with various strain rates allowed to establish the evolution curve of permeability according to the plastic strain. The combination of these results enabled us to establish a correlation between the mechanical state of material, in particular the plastic strain, and the degradation of its magnetic properties (falls of permeability) in the vicinity of the cut edge.
