Forming

Forming, metal forming, is the metalworking process of fashioning metal parts and objects through mechanical deformation; the workpiece is reshaped without adding or removing material, and its mass remains unchanged.[1]Forming operates on the materials science principle of plastic deformation, where the physical shape of a material is permanently deformed.

Metal forming tends to have more uniform characteristics across its sub-processes than its contemporary processes, cutting and joining.

On the industrial scale, forming is characterized by:[2]

  • Very high loads and stresses required, between 50 and 2500 N/mm2 (7-360 ksi)
  • Large, heavy, and expensive machinery in order to accommodate such high stresses and loads
  • Production runs with many parts, to maximize the economy of production and compensate for the expense of the machine tools

Forming processes

Forming processes tend to be categorised by differences in effective stresses. These categories and descriptions are highly simplified, since the stresses operating at a local level in any given process are very complex and may involve many varieties of stresses operating simultaneously, or it may involve stresses which change over the course of the operation.

TSC Industries’ goal is to provide a value-added service to all customers through optimizing the production process of each part/assembly while meeting customers specifications. When a prototype is required, TCS will engage customers to provide optimal production solutions leveraging decades of knowledge in precision sheet metal manufacturing. Parts can be/are manufactured from a variety of materials including cold & hot rolled steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, other metals as needed.

Our Mission:

  • Provide the highest quality precision metal products.
  • Meet our customer’s requirements and expectations in a timely manner. To treat each customer, supplier and employee with integrity and fairness. Ensure the highest levels of accuracy and appearance of our customers components.
  • Continuously improve our production processes & employees through the application of LEAN manufacturing techniques.
  • Employ qualified Engineers & Technicians and provide them with an environment which encourages them to develop and apply their talents to the fullest.
  • Invest in technologies and personnel that will enable our company to stay at the forefront of precision sheetmetal manufacturing capabilities.
