Our forming department covers not only the bending of metal parts, but also complex tool making, soldering, spot welding, surface grinding, milling and turning.
We specialise in both prototyping and production runs. This section details not only what Photofabrication can provide in terms of forming methods, but also the assembly, soldering, spot welding a grinding services.
We are able to etch lines into a part. These lines are only etched half way through the metal. By doing this, the metal can be bent.
Photofabrication have developed a “Uni-Tool”, which is an adaptable piece of hard tooling.
This is a hard tooling method, which uses several more complicated pieces of universal tooling and can cope better with more complicated parts.
Hard tooling to fit one of the fly or toggle presses is made, which can only be used on one particular part.

Photofabrication are able to solder and / or spot weld components, whether you require a seam soldered or two pieces spot welded together we can help.
