Elastoforming, also known as rubber-pad forming, is a manufacturing process for sheet metal that utilizes an elastomer pad for one side of the forming tool and a solid die or punch on the opposite side.

Hot stamping, known as press hardening in Europe, and hot press forming in Asia, is a thermal forming process for sheet metal where forming and metallurgical heat-treating take place during the stamping process.

Introduction What is Deep Drawing Deep drawing is a metal forming process for creating seamless, sheet metal parts that are closed on one end and have a depth greater than their radius. Deep drawn parts achieve their shape by drawing…

Background There has never been a better time for manufacturers operating abroad to return home, and this is especially true since the rapid onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has closed borders and interrupted global supply chains. The process of reshoring,…

Introduction Superplasticity is a characteristic of metals or metal alloys, which become more malleable at high temperatures. Because of this characteristic, alloys can be stretched into much larger sizes, producing high-strength, lightweight components with complex geometries.In the Superplastic Forming (SPF)…

An introduction Hydroforming is a cost-effective metal fabricating process that can form complex geometries in tubular based parts and extended deep draws in sheet metal-based parts. Hydroformed parts allow for parts consolidation, the reduced number of sub components reduces assembly costs…

Refractory brick presses, a compaction press variant, are used to form refractory bricks that are resistant to high temperatures. Refractories are also considered composites, as they are made of complex configurations of several materials and used in massive quantities. Hydraulic presses…

An Introduction Stretch forming is a metal forming process that simultaneously stretches and bends a selected material over a machined form, called a die, to form a part with one or several different curve radii. This process produces perfectly curved…

An Introduction Compression molding is a common polymer manufacturing process for thermosets, thermoplastics, as well as elastomers and natural rubbers. It produces high-volume, dimensionally precise, high-strength, temperature resistant parts with good surface quality. Parts can be produced in an array…
