A decisive point of shearing and an immense advantage compared to other shearing methods as the laser or water jet cutting is its high productivity. An essential factor for its high productivity is tool life. During the shearing process, lifetime is influenced by wear that is dependent on tool material, sheet metal material, oiling and cutting parameters. Our comprehensive selection of machines and equipment allows us to carry out individual investigations of strip or sheet material and in this way, we are capable to analyse the influence of material quality and tool material.

Based on a research cooperation with industrial partners that has been existed for years, the Forschungsgesellschaft Umformtechnik mbH has a wide experience with all kinds of materials and tool materials and can support you in broadening knowledge according to your individual needs.
