Steel plate forming involves the process of creating steel parts and objects via mechanical deformation. Forming allows you to reshape a workpiece without the need to add or remove any material; meaning the mass of the workpiece remains the same.
This process works on the workpieces’ scientific principle of material deformation, ensuring that the shape of the material is permanently deformed.
Metal forming shows more uniform characteristics across its sub-processes than it does across its contemporary processes. Industrially, forming can be characterized by the following:
Extremely high loads and stresses are required;
These high stresses and heavy loads require large and heavy machinery;
Production operates with many parts in order to maximise frugality and compensate for the cost of machine tools.
