Process: Press Tools


Press tools are used within a wide range of sheet metal processes and incorporate a number of operations such as blanking, bending and forming. Press tools can be used to achieve a range of complex shapes using thin material, through the application of pressure. Often, the cost of tooling is only justified by the production of high-volume batches and is not suitable for prototype work and low-volume production.
