Sheet metal forming parts can be manufactured on multiple ways. Thus, often the most obvious solution must not be the best and most profitable one.
Through my machine oriented view I can help you to focus, right from the beginning, to the best manufacturing process. For that the metal forming part and an initial plan of the forming process take center of my evaluation.
Is the sheet metal forming part feasable beeing produced on a press? Shall the forming part beeing produced in progdie or transfer mode?
Based uppon the forming process and the resulting forming forces the available machines are evaluated for their suitability to produce the sheet metal parts.
Thus the characteristical properties of the machine, like available working capacity and nominal force travel but also the off centre loads are examined.
