Transfer moulds

Moulds for transfer moulding of metal sheet

The transfer mould is used for the production of complex sheet metal components that require a series of moulding operations in several work stations. In the transfer mould, unlike the progressive mould in which the sheet metal moves through the mould, the sheet metal is transferred from one work station to another via a transfer system consisting of pliers or other mechanical or pneumatic devices that grasp and move the sheet metal accurately. Each station may include bending, cutting, drilling, and moulding operations and other modelling operations. AIRO designs and manufactures transfer moulds by carefully planning the sequence of operations, the positioning of the work stations, the choice of mould materials and the transfer system to ensure correct execution and precision in the moulding of the components.
