Progression Pressings

Progression pressings, Multiforms has a range of high speed Progression Presses capable of producing a range of complex components 

Conventional presswork is a process whereby a hydraulic or mechanical ram/ stamping press is used together with specifically designed  punch and die component tooling to shape and form a metal component.

Hydraulic presses are able to produce a constant press force over the length of the press stroke.  Mechanical presses have a progressive press force as the ram moves towards the bottom dead centre position.  Mechanical presses have the advantage of higher stroke rates.
