  • Metal Forming/Shearing Presses
    are favored because of their high resolution and responsiveness. Another advantage is that our sensors enable customers to store preset recipes for a wide variety of sheet metal shapes and sizes thereby reducing startup and changeover times. Application: Position feedback for machine platens on metal
  • Sheet Metal Fabrication Explained: Punching, Notching, and Embossing
    to remove material from a sheet metal blank, punching is very commonly used process. This involves the use of a punch and female die, which is aligned such that the sheet metal deforms only slightly before the intended feature is created. A press brake or stamping press can both be used
  • Sheet Metal Company Increases Productivity with Vacuum Handling Systems
    and safe handling of the heavy metal sheets, the responsible persons at the medium-sized sheet-metal company Pro Metall Blechverarbeitung GmbH in Achern-Fautenbach decided to invest in a vacuum handling system for loading and unloading an existing laser-cutting machine and a stamping press/nibbler.
  • Sheet Metal Design Handbook (.pdf)
    Press brake forming-The fundamental advantage of a press brake as a forming tool is its flexibility. By using standard vee-dies, cost savings can be realized through economical set-ups and run times on small lots and prototypes. In addition to these considerations, using the following guidelines
  • Powder-metal parts earn top honors
    for atypical PM components. The winning parts in this competition represent advances in conventional press and sinter PM processing, metal injection molding (MIM), and hot-isostatic pressing (HIP). The superconducting dipole cryomagnets in the LHC operate at cryogenic temperatures (–456°F). The complex
  • Innovations in Fluid Cell Tooling and Process Efficiency Dramatically Lower the Costs of Aerospace Sheet Metal Parts (.pdf)
    with conventional presses.
  • Fastening in a clinch
    Self-clinching fasteners permanently join thin metal panels. Self-clinching panel fasteners join thin metal sheets with minimal hardware, and keep screws from falling into other components. Right-angle fasteners clinch into a rectangular hole in one sheet and attach to a second sheet at a right
  • Go With The Flow
    . Two brothers and a brother-in-law started the company in 1989, says John West, president of Fox Valley. "They saw there was a lot of potential to specialize in sheet metal work, focusing on stainless steel and aluminum. " The founders created a niche doing this type of work and have continued to reap
