This study outlines the recent developments in metal forming processes, focusing mainly on the shearing process. A summary of the background of the shearing process is given to give perspective on how such a process has changed over time. It explains what shearing operations are and how the shearing process is operated in metal forming. While also outlining the difference between shearing, slitting, punching, notching, and blanking processes, and the advantages and disadvantages of the shearing process are detailed. Different types of modern shearing machines are documented. The ways of ensuring the optimal functionality of the shearing machine and how the shearing operation has improved the manufacturing products were scripted. Three cases were given on the recent advancement in the use of shearing operation. Recommendations on how to improve efficiency in shearing metal forming are specified with relevance to the theory and a conclusion is drawn.
