  • 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
  • Split-Pinion Ensures Precise Positioning on Material Feed Axis
    A punch press manufacturer needed to precisely position a sheet of metal in order to accurately punch parts. The material feed axis had to have high repeatability and no lost motion.
  • Metalforming Shapes Everyday Life (.pdf)
    Window frames, keys, car bodies, computer components, lipstick cases, paper clips, tractors, scalpels, bicycles...what do these items all have in common? They are all produced in the metalforming/press industry. What is Metalforming exactly? It is the process by which sheet metal is shaped
  • Medical Device Link .
    , and fully automatic assembly, as well as subassembly. Stamped, cast, machined, and fabricated sheet-metal parts and injection-molded, extruded, cast, and fabricated sheet-plastic parts are assembled into prototypes, sample devices for clinical testing, or final devices by a variety of techniques. Hot-melt
  • 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
