DEFINITION OF TERMS

  • Press – A machine by which pressure is applied to a workpiece to cut, pierce, bend or shape it
  • Die – A tool used to impart shapes to or to form impressions on sheet metal
  • Blanking – A press operation wherein metal sheets are cut into shapes by striking with a punch
  • Bending – A press operation that involves forming a metal part into a curved or angular shape, or the stretching or flanging of it along a curved path
  • Drawing – A press operation that forces plastic deformation of metal in a die to form recessed parts or cuplike shapes
  • Drawing die – A die that forms sheet metal into cuplike, wrinkle-free shapes
  • Feed stock – The raw material furnished to a press machine to form or shape the metal
  • Trimming – Removing excess materials from drawn or blanked part
  • Punching – A piece removed from a sheet metal or other material by a punch press
  • Ram – A plunger, weight or other guided structure for exerting pressure by impact
  • Shearing – Shearing is a metalworking process which cuts stock without the formation of chips or the use of burning or melting. Strictly speaking, if the cutting blades are straight the process is called shearing; if the cutting blades are curved then they are shearing-type operations.

    The most commonly sheared materials are in the form of sheet metal or plates, however rods can also be sheared. Shearing-type operations include: blanking, piercing, roll slitting, and trimming.

  • Piercing – Piercing is a shearing process where a punch and die are used to create a hole in sheet metal or a plate. The process and machinery are usually the same as that used in blanking, except that the piece being punched out is scrap in the piercing process.

    There are many specialized types of piercing: lancing, perforating, notching, nibbling, shaving, cutoff, and dinking.
