At Heraeus modern stamping technology finds applications not only with metallic materials
such as copper, iron or aluminum but also with non-metallic materials such as polyester, polyamide or epoxy resins. In the case of non-metallic materials, the soft base material and the tendency to adhesion on the tool impose special requirements on the forming process. One differentiates not only in the forming process for such materials but also in tooling-technology
and thus the tool material to be used.
Bending is also a forming production process. The material is subjected to a bending moment and a plastic, i.e., permanent deformation is achieved.
