Types of Metal Pressing

Press forming is a highly repeatable and efficient process. First, the sheet metal is cut according to our customer’s design specifications. One of our specialised metal pressing machines then manipulates the material to form the desired shape. Automation ensures our metal pressing procedure is consistent, precise, and repeatable. Nevertheless, Tanfield frequently monitors and maintains our machinery to prevent lead time disruption.

At Tanfield, we’re committed to meeting a variety of project needs with precision and haste. That’s why our metal pressing services include multiple types of metals pressing which can be applied at your discretion.

Hydraulic Metal Press

Our sheet metal pressing process typically involves a metal press machine exerting extreme force on the metal. This results in the bending and/or stretching of the material until it reaches the dimensions specified in our customer’s design. The shape taken on by the blank is dictated by the shape of the press itself, along with the press bed.

The range of hydraulic presses available to Tanfield Metal Spinners can be used to create a variety of parts and products. Whether your metal pressed products are designed for commercial or industrial use, we make sure they perform the intended function.

Due to the wide range of metal pressing applications, we have partnered with businesses across various industries to deliver quality products. This includes air temperature units, safety equipment, food containers, and more. One of the notable products Tanfield can create are metal pressed plates. We are aware of and comply with all regulations that relate to a project. In the case of pressed metal plates, it is the BS AU 145d.
