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 the pressing machine. In VM Federation's factory, we have various sizes of pressing machines (both mechanical and hydraulic pressing machines), with pressing power from 10 tons up to 4000 tons.
Sheet metal appear in countless objects, from a high-end complex vehicle like Cars, Airplanes, Ships to simple everyday objects like Holding Tanks; Bins; Lockers, Toolboxes; Electrical enclosures; machine cover ..etc
