Pressed Components

The process of creating a pressing:

  1. Laser scan – the pressing required is digitised this gives an accurate point cloud that represents the geometry of the part
  2. CAD model – a CAD model of the part is drawn using the scan data as a guide
  3. Engineering drawings – drawings are created from the CAD model to allow post pressing machining operations to be detailed
  4. Tool design – the press tool is designed from the CAD model of the part
  5. Tool manufacture – the press tool is CNC machined from solid tool steel
  6. Pressings – the press tool is used in a hydraulic press to produce a pressing from flat sheet metal blanks
