Presswork is a modern manufacturing process which involves the manipulation of material within a press tool, into required shapes in order to create consistent and accurate volume components. Material in the form of, coil, strips or blanks is fed into the press tool either automatically or manually. The material is then either, cut, formed or coined, or even all three items, in order to produce a completed component or part of a components (depending upon the number of operations required to produce it fully).
Pressed components can be manufactures from a range of ferrous and non-ferrous materials. Non- ferrous materials include those such as Stainless Steel, Aluminium, Zinc, Copper and Brass. Whereas ferrous materials can be CS’s, CR’s and HR’s Mild steel, Zintec, Galvanised steels, to name but a few. The material for the components is specified and determined by each individual customer and the end product application.
