Forming Technology – Metal

The process of smoothing, welding, filling and finishing of curved shapes like on motor cars. See more

Forming of shapes on an adapted metal lathe. Metal discs spin and are pressed with smooth tools to press the rotating metal into a shape against a metal or hardwood mandrel. See more

Sheets of metal are formed by stamping shapes and forms using dies and moulds in a stamping press. Read more

Deep forms are drawn by stamping blanks of thin metal. Read more

Heated sheets of metal are formed in moulds using high pressure. Similar to thermoforming in plastic. Read more

The bending of metal tubes and of rolled sections. Read more

Swaging is the hammering and pressing of metal, especially tubes. Read more

The heating and hammering into a predetermined shape. Read more

Molten metal is poured into moulds pressed out of sand using templates and patterns. Read more

The casting of molten metal into steel moulds using air pressure to force the metal into the mould. Read more

The casting of molten metals into once-off ceramic moulds. Also known as the Lost Wax Process. Read more

Fine metal powder in a wax binder is forced into a mould. The resulting parts are fired in a kiln in order to get the metal powder to fuse into solid metal. Read more

Similar to electroplating, except the objects are formed entirely by electrostatically deposited particles . Read more

Small low-temperature metal parts are cast from vulcanized rubber moulds. The pressure to form the detail is provided by centrifugal force as the moulds spin, Also known as Spin Moulding. Read more

Sheet metal strips are pressed into shapes using a Hydraulic Ram press. Read more
