Press tools are abundant in the manufacturing industry as they can perform a vast array of different tasks. A press tool is a metal forming machine tool designed to shape or cut metal by applying mechanical force.
There are a variety of different press tools to cut, punch, sheer, trim, form and bend materials. They are an invaluable tool for producing components at high volume and presses can be hydraulic, mechanical or pneumatic.
Press tools are often custom built to produce a component usually made from sheet metal. Sheet metal items often created by press tools include fenders and roofs for cars, components of aircraft, business and household appliances parts and parts of electronic equipment. Precision parts can be manufacture by press tools too.
Press tools will be specified as shaving tools, forming tools, piercing tools etc. and GTMA’s Supplier Directory is host to a wide range of press tool suppliers to suit all needs.
