Drop Hammer Tools

Drop Hammer ToolThe name suggests exactly what this type of tooling is designed to do. The Punch element of the tool is raised within the press to a pre-determined height and effectively dropped into the die cavity.

The logic being that the material being formed is rapidly shocked into the required shape. Technology has now led to the advent of double-acting and triple-acting draw form presses. However drop hammer forming is still used with remarkable success.
