The importance of metal pressing for smooth operations

Here at JTF Fabrication we have installed our own metal press and guillotine in house. This now enables us to complete press metal works in house and take Cad drawing specification elements through to the completed product. This increases our ability to create folded metal works in greater quantities and at increased speeds.


Metal is a very flexible product that can be made into whatever shape you would like it to be, this is done through metal pressing. A metal press is simply a flatbed with a pressing ram or rod, this is actuated either hydraulically, pneumatically or mechanically. When making a metal press part, you must insert 2 halves of the metal press tool into the press, after this you bolt the bottom of the tool to the flatbed and then the top of the tool to the ram or rod. After you have done this, you can feed the sheet metal material into the machine, from here the metal will be pressed in between the two halves of the tool and it will then be pressed into the shape you want it to be.


Metal pressing is important for smooth operations as it produces an increase in ability to create folded metal works in greater quantities at increased speeds. Metal press works is also completed at a reasonable price even though it has high energy usage, it continues to be an affordable solution and will fit your businesses budget, giving you smooth operations.
