Alternative Title:


When someone visits a modern production plant, views the press department as an assemblage of noisy mechanical "monsters" calmly chopping out parts from a roll of metal strip, But he never realises that this department plays an extremely important role in our domestic life, being largely responsible for many of the conforts and amenities which have been brought within the reach of all classes.
Presses and presswork technique is widely used in industry mainly during the more recent years. This is because it is a rapit, an accurate, and an economical method of articles production from sheet metal at very high production rates with either unskilled or semi-skilled labour. Therefore the results are a very considerable saving in both material and labour and in most cases an article pleasing in appearance.
Some of the operations done in this department are: blanking, piercing, lancing, cutting off and parting, notching, shaving, bending, forming, drawing etc, Usually combinations of these operations are used because by this method time is saved therefore the production cost of the article is decreased.
Finally a combination of two of these operations will be used during this project since it's objective is to design a press tool for blanking and piercing of a component (a mounting plate of a filter).
