Optimum forming processes with radial and linear forming tools
In this forming process, one or more semi-finished products, for instance metal strips or metal wires, are processed in the stamping and forming machine with a radial or linear bending tool. All movements of the bending tool can be individually adjusted via cams or NC units for customized stroke, movement duration and resulting speed.
Thus, the parameters for the forming processes can be individually adapted for all processing stations. This means that the workpiece is reliably formed with punches with defined movements. Perfectly customized motion sequences protect the material, increase precision and repeatability, and ultimately guarantee extremely long tool life.
