What Is Metal Forming?
Metal forming, otherwise known as forming is a metalworking process. It fashions metal objects and parts through mechanical deformation. The product is reshaped without removing or adding material. The mass weight does not change while the physical shape is permanently altered.
The Metal Forming Process
The differences in effective stresses categorize the different forming processes. On a local level, the stresses that are operating can be complex and can involve a variety of stresses working sumultaneously. Or the stresses can change during the course of the operation.
Types of Forming
A process of metal forming where the primary means of deformation is multi-axial or uni- compressive loading.
A process where the primary means of deformation is multiaxial or uni- tensile stress.
Combination of Compressive and Tensile Forming
The Process where the primary means of deformation uses both compressive loads and tensile stresses.
