Transfer Press Technology
Deciding on which transfer system is appropriate depends on two basic criteria; part complexity and production volume.
Today's manufacturing trends particularly in the automotive industry, require metalformers to produce complex parts from thinner yet stronger materials. To meet this requirement modern press builders have designed transfer technology capable of stamping very complex parts. These systems are flexible, allowing metalformers to manipulate the part during production and reducing material waste when compared to progressive die, coil-fed applications. In addition to dedicated transfer presses, straightside presses and gap frame presses can be used as transfer systems.
