Difference between Press and Forming
Multi-forming can be processed with material width, so there are fewer parts that become scrap, and cut and multiple bends can be done in a single process. This is an excellent construction method from the viewpoint of cost reduction and environmental conservation. Advanex contributes to society by responding to customer needs through environmentally friendly manufacturing.
Environmentally friendly manufacturing multi-forming
Sorry, this video is only available in Japanese.
The animation shows a comparison between press-formed and multi-formed leaf springs. In multi-forming, processing within the material’s width is possible, so there are fewer parts lost to scrap, while cuts and multiple bends can be done in a single process. With the multi-forming, bends are at right angles to the roll direction of the material, so it is has excellent spring characteristics. Since there are fewer materials used, this method reduces costs and is environmentally friendly.
