Sheet: material of thickness <= 6.35mm (0.25 in), and width >= 304.8mm (12 in). Sheetmetal blanking and forming is a coldworking process, i.e., a process that takes place below the recrystalisation temperature of the metal in question, normally at room temperature. Compared to hotworking processes, the following points are evident. No heating required Better surface finish Enhanced dimension control Improved strength if strain hardening permitted Directional properties may be imparted Historical note: Previously the evolution of a sheetmetal component from conception to production has been a slow, cautious process based on trial and error, craft based skill and experience. Due to the pressures of modern consumer requirements, lead time from concept to production is decreasing, and this, coupled with reduced availability of crafts persons with
