Defined as a manufacturing process to produce components from sheet, strip or coil, press work operations of cutting and then forming can be made on a range of mechanical power presses. Cutting operations (which could be cropping, piercing, notching, blanking and lancing) then forming operations
(such as bending, drawing, folding and squeezing) can be combined to produce the final component.
All press work requires tooling or sets of tooling to manufacture the item. The level of complexity and the volume of the component will determine the type of tooling required.
The materials we can work with include ferrous and non-ferrous, strip, coil or blanks, with a gauge thickness of 0.3mm – 8.0mm. At our disposal are mechanical presses that can handle 10 tonne through to 160 ton and hand presses (fly presses) for light assembly.
Here are a few example groups:
• Suspension units
• Power Generation
• Hand Tools
