Presswork refers to the manipulation of metal through machinery which utilises pressure to form sheet metal. This can be carried out on several machines, including a punch press, stamping press, and press brake. Presswork is used for industrial metalworking, to make an assortment of metal products, often found in commercial, agricultural, and transportation industries amongst others.
There are several different types of machine presses, used for presswork. These include a punch press, stamping press, and press brake.
A punch press is typically powered through hydraulics to lower a ram onto a metal workpiece, punching holes out of the metal.
A stamping press deforms metal with a specially formed tool, which is pushed onto the workpiece.
A press brake is typically powered through hydraulics or CNC software. It forms metal through bending it between a tool and die.
Metal is the most commonly pressed material; both ferrous and non-ferrous metals can be pressed, alongside exotics. Mild steel and structural steel, stainless steel, aluminium, brass, and copper are often used for presswork.
Pressed products are varied; presswork can be used to create products within the commercial industry, such as domestic appliances and electronic goods, parts for automotive vehicles, and metal frames and components used within the construction of buildings.
Two family-owned sites, totalling over 75,000 sq. ft, house the sizeable plant list which aids Venture Steel Group’s outsourced presswork and allows us to handle large material tonnage, for a global customer base. This includes a 220 tonne CNC press brake and CNC turret punch amongst numerous other presswork machinery. Venture Steel Group can further manufacture bespoke tooling in-house, or incorporate customers’ tooling onto our machinery, to form pressed products.
