Skiving is cutting material off in slices, usually metal, but also leather or laminates. The method is used instead of rolling the material to shape when the material must not be work hardened, or must not shed minute slivers of metal later which is common in cold rolling processes.   Skiving occurs on a continuous machine that uses a form tool to cut a trough into base metal strip stock. The cladding metal is inlaid into this trough and later bonded to it.
