Video - Forming tools

Today we will talk about forming tools, which can perform the deformation of the material only, or the pierce and deformation in a single hit.

In case of deformation only, if the pre-pierce is required, it should be made with another tool in a previous operation, but if we have to respect pretty tight hole tolerances, we can make it after deformation with a dedicated piercing tool.

In the video we will talk about when it is recommended to use tools tthe use of tools that make pierce and forming in a single hit, and when it is better to use a standard tool instead.

We will also address the problem of the limitations of the deformations that can be achieved in a punching machine, and we will also offer advice and solutions to reduce tool wear and to save time and money.
