Sheet metal designs enable production with little material loss and can often be a resource-saving alternative to cast or milled parts. A wide range of sheet materials such as steel, stainless steel or aluminium is available in a wide variety of designs.  

Workpieces made of sheet metal can be produced in almost any shape and size very flexibly and quickly.  Smart sheet metal design is the key to efficient and economical production. The design guidelines necessary for the design process of sheet metal parts are derived from the technical reliability, functionality, and safety of the parts.  Depending on the manufacturing process, the following design notes for the design of sheet metal parts must be observed.
