A can end shell forming system includes a die that defines a forming pocket having a shaping surface. The forming pocket is configured to receive a portion of a sheet during can end shell forming. The can end shell forming system also includes an inductor within the forming pocket that is adapted to selectively propel the portion of the sheet against the shaping surface to form a can end shell. A method of forming a can end shell includes positioning a portion of a sheet within a forming pocket of a can end shell forming tool. The method also includes activating an inductor within the forming pocket and propelling the portion of the sheet against a shaping surface within the forming pocket such that the portion of the sheet is formed into the can end shell.
