Printed Tools for Steel Forming
Centerline Engineered Solutions fabricates formed steel parts with an industrial press brake. In order to fabricate each part, Centerline has to make a unique punch and die. For most applications, the cost of this specialized tooling does not justify the expense of the part. By printing the tooling out of Onyx and reinforcing critical points with steel inserts, Centerline creates forming tooling at a vastly lower cost.
