What Is Metal Forming? 

Metal forming is one of the most widely used manufacturing processes that are essential in today’s society. During this process, the material is physically deformed using various techniques. The main element is utilizing force, which exceeds the material’s yield strength, thereby causing strain hardening.

Metal forming stands out because it can be used for mass production, especially in larger projects where the same part or component is employed in numerous applications. Multiple industries seek metal forming in their production lines.

Some of the most common types of commercial metal forming techniques are:

  • Rolling: A sheet metal is fed through rotating rollers to form it into a cylindrical shape.
  • Bending: A brake press or a similar machine is used to bend the flexible material placed over a die block. After that, it punch-presses the material without causing a hole. However, the force is strong enough to shape the metal to the die.

Most of the time, the materials used are metal sheets or tubing. It must have a low yield strength and high ductility when forming sheet metal. The basic metal forming process is bending until the desired geometric shape is formed.

Common Applications of Metal Forming

Metal forming is an effective and cost-efficient production process, so it’s widely used in different sectors. Fortunately, we’re well-versed in their needs and can produce diverse components even with tight tolerances and complex shapes.

Here are some of the most common applications of metal forming:

  • Construction Equipment
  • HVAC components
  • Structural components
  • Fittings and frames
  • Tracks, rails, and rods
  • Metal frames
  • Enclosures and housings
  • Aircraft components
  • Household appliances
  • Electronics
  • Lighting
  • Hardware

With this versatile and flexible manufacturing procedure, we can easily design and develop parts and components that are not readily available. It also has a slew of benefits, including:

  • More durable results
  • No wastage of raw materials
  • Faster turnaround time for tight deadlines
