Stretch Forming Machines

When applicable, stretch wrap forming methods provide several unique advantages over pure bending and other types of metal forming. Stretch wrap forming machines operate by stretching the metal to its elastic limit, then wrapping the part around a forming die. This process increases the metal's yield strength and actually results in a stronger part. Since stretch forming machines also keep the metal under constant tension, they minimize imperfections such as "cans" or "buckles." Stretch forming machines also perform a task in one step that would otherwise require several machines and multiple steps, improving efficiency and saving time and money. For some parts, where it would otherwise be impossible, stretch forming machines allow for production runs of that part.
