The present paper review a lubrication condition metal forming process like forging, extrusion, deep drawing and rolling. The lubricant film at tool-workpiece interface must able to sustain inconsistencies of temperature, pressure and velocity, so that a product with desired surface finish could be deformed. Meanwhile, vegetable oil has a great potential to replace the current used of petroleum-based lubricant. However, limitations of vegetable oil need to overcome first before could find application at industrial scale.
