"In a nutshell, electromagnetic forming is the result of cranking some scary high energy through a coil wrapped around a conductor. The coil gains a wicked magnetic field that's changing quite rapidly and imparts a magnetic field to the conductor via the "magic" of electromagnetic induction. The thing is that these two magnetic fields repel each other in a very violent way. If the power is sufficient and the experiment controlled, the coil explodes and the metal in the conductor is compressed."
