Flanging is a bonding and forming technology used in sheet-metal forming. By bending over the edge of metal sheets using a flanging machine, the process reinforces the bent edge or creates a connection consisting of multiple components.
The flanging process requires tools made from materials that have low friction properties and are capable of withstanding high mechanical loads.
High mechanical loads, surface quality of the tools, dimensional accuracy and wear resistance are the challenges presented by this application.
Overview of all applications
Forming processes place very high demands on the wear resistance and stability of the tools and mountings used. High surface qualities are required.
