When the sheet metal stamping processes are simulated, different values of the friction coefficient need to be defined in different regions, considering the nature of the deformation process. Thus, the regression and analytical models to determine the friction coefficient under the blankholder and on the die drawing edge by the strip drawing test are presented in the article. These models were verified by experimental strip drawing test under the same contact conditions. Zn coated high strength low alloyed steel sheet H220PD+Z100 was used at experiments and friction tests were done against the tool steel and TiCN MP coated tool steel. The results indicate, that values of friction coefficients evaluated by linear regression are lower than evaluated from analytical models. The positive effect of coating TiCN MP when applied on the contact surfaces was found, thus, decreases the friction coefficient and the drawing force scattering during the strip drawing test.
