Today, it offers press forming
and compression molding of TP composites, along with its newest technology--injection overmolding of TP prepregs.

Employing over 100 staff from the region, Boardlink is also the largest carton board press forming
manufacturer of paper plates and dual-ovenable board trays in the UK, as well as manufacturing a wide range of catering and janitorial wipes and wiper cloths.
To assess the possibility of sharp edge forming via traditional press forming
, a simple press forming
simulation consisting of a punch, die, and workpiece was performed using a measured FLD of A5052-H32.
These problems can be solved by using an alternative device to transfer or replacement some strokes of the press forming
on another machine.
Hot press forming
is increasingly used by automotive manufacturers and suppliers to manufacture complex body parts capable of withstanding impact.
- (JCN) - JFE Steel Corporation announced today the launch of JAGTM (JFE Advanced Guard), an excellent oxidation- and corrosion-resistant coated steel sheet for hot press forming
that reduces the weight of automotive structural parts.
The fabrics are made from unidirectional tapes formed from S-2 Glass or carbon fibers that have been fully impregnated with high-performance Victrex PEEK polymer, say the firms, adding, "These Tixpref composite fabrics assist in drastically reducing the cycle time, up to 50% (and even more for thin walled parts), required for press forming
of the fabrics into composite parts."
By heating the fabric prior to impregnation and press forming
it for two to three minutes, a panel thickness of only 2 millimeters (0.078 inches) is possible, the company claims.
These TIXPREF composite fabrics assist customers in drastically reducing the cycle time, up to 50 % (and even more for thin walled parts), required for press forming
of the fabrics into composite parts.
The forming limit diagram used to find the limiting strains at which necking and fracture occurs respectively in a sheet metal while press forming
. Keeler  and Goodwin  introduced the concept of forming limit diagram (FLD) in 1960s.
