Custom Urethane Large Radius Forming Die
Large radius forming can be quiet complex and expensive with traditional bump forming methods after you add in all of the extra steps involved with part placements and finish work. Our custom made die retainer holds the urethane die pad in place and punch is specifically made for your application. The worry of extra steps and finishing is eliminated. When you use urethane as a die pad it will allow your part to come out perfectly formed, mark free time and time again. With this method of forming metal it really allows new designs of parts to become a reality. We also use deflector bars under the pad to help dictate the flow of the urethane pad during forming. This maximizes the efficiency and extends pad life while minimizing the tonnage requirements.
