Sheet Metal Manufacturing Processes | Tenere

HOW IT WORKS

There are two main sheet metal manufacturing processes: soft tooling and hard tooling. Soft tooling uses metal fabrication processes including laser cutting, turrets, and brake presses to form parts and components through cutting, punching, and bending. Hard tooling, or sheet metal stamping, feeds coiled sheet metal into a stamping press where a steel die forms the metal in one or more stages.
