These are many different sheet metal forming processes such as: Bending; Curling; Decambering; Deep drawing; Expanding; Hemming and seaming; Hydroforming; Incremental sheet forming; Ironing; Laser cutting; Photochemical machining; Perforating; Press brake forming; Punching; Roll forming; Rolling; Spinning; Stamping; Water jet cutting; Wheeling…etc
The most commonly used tool for sheet metal forming is pressing machine. In our factory, we have various sizes of pressing machines (both mechanical and hydraulic pressing machine), with pressing power from 10 ton up to 4000 ton.
Sheet metal appear in countless objects, from high-end complex vehicle like Cars, Airplanes, Ships to simple everyday objects like Holding Tanks; Bins; Lockers, Toolboxes; Electrical enclosures; machine cover ..etc
