Stretch Forming

Why Total Metal Products?

Total Metal Products (TMP) are a sector leading machine design and tool making company which designs, manufactures, commissions and services high quality stretch forming tooling systems.

Stretch Forming Techniques

Our stretch forming solutions are designed to operate standalone or integrate seamlessly into your manufacturing process operations.

TMP’s dedicated in-house design team, project management and production engineers work collaboratively to provide you with the optimum stretch forming solution, which meets your specification and the requirements of your business; on time and on budget.

TMP recognises that stretch forming techniques and materials are constantly evolving. Our knowledgeable, experienced and industry aware team are continually adapting our designs to provide innovative solutions to meet these challenges.

Our leading-edge modern stretch forming solutions utilise CNC servo axis motion controllers to ensure accurate / repeatable control of the process; this has the added benefit of being quicker to tune to the desired shape and potentially have different stretch profiles for varying materials i.e., aluminium extrusions which may vary in age hardness.

Our solutions produce components with a greater level of quality and complexity, utilising new material technologies, reducing cycle time and waste, which increases your process efficiency and cost effectiveness.

    What is Stretch Forming?

    When a material is simultaneously stretched and bent to produce a curved form this is what is referred to as “Stretch Forming”.

    The raw material or blank, which can be metal sheet, rolled section or extrusion, is bent around a former, known as a form die or tool, which forms the required component whether it has a single or multiple curved radii.

    The section is gripped at either end and then bent around the former with stretch controlled with either mechanical cams or servo-controlled axis.

    Stretch Forming produces a final part with better shape control and an improved surface quality, which does not require additional finishing or polishing and which is perfectly curved, is produced with reduced cost and less waste.

    Stretch Forming is used across many industries including automotive, transportation, and architectural.

    TMP can produce a broad range of toolmaking solutions.

    • Stretch Bending
    • Roll Forming
    • Welding Jigs
    • Assembly Jigs
    • Metal Punching
    • Sheet Metal Piercing
