Forming

The Forming Production Stage covers the forming of the metal into a useable part for product assembly.

  • Die casting is the default process selection. This process covers the melting of the metal and the subsequent casting.
  • Extrusion anodization, for metal this process should be selected when aluminum extrusions follow the anodization process.
  • Drawing, for metal this process should be selected when metal is drawn on deep drawing machines, by pulling the work through a mold. Depending on the size of the parts to be produced and the amount of deep drawing steps, single step presses or transfer presses are used.
  • Extrusion, for metal this process should be selected when aluminum profiles are produced through the extrusion process, where the work is pushed through the mold.
  • Stamping and bending, for metal this process should be selected when metal sheets are stamped and folded into specific shapes.
