Description

Metal forming relies on metal’s ability to flow plastically in the solid state without a significant change in its properties. Metal forming can be divided into two main areas, bulk metal forming and sheet metal forming. Bulk metal forming processes include rolling, extrusion, forging, and drawing. Sheet metal forming includes shearing, bending, and drawing.
