Problem = solution…

Our customers products have evolved over the years and so have our manufacturing processes. To support these changes we’ve developed a “High Definition Forming” process that is used when precision pockets are required. This process can be utilized on our rotary forming or our step and repeat forming equipment. The concept behind this manufacturing method is that the pocket is created by a male form die, which is pushed into the material, rather than the material being pushed into a female die.
