Forming Machines

Forming machines are a type of machine used to shape materials such as plastic, wood and metal. Since it offers the opportunity to work on materials with different dimensions, form machines perform operations that human power cannot do. This helps form machines used in production to reduce the need for manpower.

Forming machines are used to transform various materials into predetermined shapes. Usually these are paper, cardboard, plastic and metal materials. In particular, the type of form machine to be used may differ according to the materials to be converted. For this reason, people and businesses that will choose a form machine should first decide in which areas they will use it and then make an appropriate choice.

These are just a few examples, and the usage areas of forming machines are quite wide. They are widely used in different industries depending on the forming processes needed.

Material Selection in Forming Machines

Correct material selection in forming machines is extremely important for production success. Here are the factors needed to research material selection in sorting machines:

  • Material of the Workpiece
  • Forming Process
  • Material Properties
  • Forming Tolerances
  • Longevity and Durability

Material of the Workpiece

The material of the workpiece to be shaped and material selection is the most basic factor. Different components have different coupling properties and may require different operating methods. For example, it can be metal materials (steel, aluminum, etc.), plastics or composite materials. Appropriate material selection should be made by determining the material properties and costs of the workpiece.

Forming Process

Various collecting units are used forming machines, such as bending, cutting, molding, roll jointing, etc. Each process may have different material properties and durability requirements. The forming process and method is one of the factors that make up the material selection.

Material Properties

Storage properties should be considered when using forming machines. The final properties of the material, such as elasticity, strength, toughness, thermal conductivity, are not important for the receiving process. For example, harder hardware may require stronger and more durable machines.


Forming Tolerances

It is important to ensure compliance with tolerances during the forming process. The material selection must be appropriate to achieve the desired tolerances. They should be able to organize fine cleaning processes, and the material selection should allow for more precise tolerances.

Longevity and DurabilityIt is important for forming machines to have a long service life and durability. The material must be able to withstand repeated handling and wear and tear. This reduces values and ensures continuity of production.


Maintenance of Forming Machines

Regular maintenance of forming machines is important for maintaining their efficiency and life. Here are some tips to consider for the maintenance of forming machines:

  • Cleaning: Cleaning the machine regularly prevents particles and dirt from accumulating. Residues or oils on workpieces can affect machine performance. Clean the machine after the operation and periodically.
  • Lubrication: Proper lubrication is essential for the smooth operation of the moving parts of forming machines. Follow the manufacturer's recommended lubrication schedule and use the correct lubricants.
  • Checks: The operating system of the machine requires regular checks, including hydraulic or pneumatic systems and electrical components. These checks help you detect potential problems such as leaks, damaged parts or connections, worn components or broken wires.
  • Spare Parts: Availability of critical spare parts in stock ensures production continuity in case of unexpected failures. It is important that important parts are checked regularly and replaced as necessary.
  • Training and Personnel: Training of personnel is important for the correct use and maintenance of the machine. It should be ensured that operators and maintenance personnel are trained in using the machine correctly and performing basic maintenance operations.
  • Records and Documentation: Important for tracking and documenting maintenance activities, tracking past maintenance operations, and providing reference for future planning. Maintenance records should include operations performed and changes made.
  • Compliance with Manufacturer's Instructions: Shaping machines should be maintained in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. The maintenance schedule and recommendations provided by the manufacturer must be followed.
  • Professional Support: It is important to seek professional support for complex maintenance or major repairs. By getting help from authorized technical service providers, you can ensure the best maintenance and repair of the machine.
