Deep Drawn Presswork & Pressings

We have two extensive facilities which offer a varied range of metal pressing operations, from large “Tranemo” highly productive hydraulic power metal presswork up to 315 tons to several smaller “Hare” hydraulic machines for quick metal forming operations.

Another key strength of David Bowler & Sons is within our range of Rhodes, Stanko, Aida & Edelhoff mechanical power presses, differing from 130 to 400 tons. Tool protection systems are fitted in place for high tonnage presswork, ensuring smooth running & minimal down time. Our shop floor also consists of many other smaller mechanical presses from Aida, HME & MABU to meet the varying needs of volume complex metal pressings & deep drawn components.

Progression & Transfer Tooling

Our tool room offers a good combination of wire erosion technology, CNC milling, turning & several grinding operations - altogether ensuring that single, progression & transfer tooling is manufactured in-house to a very high standard. This uncompromising approach to quality, ensures our clients receive a reliable source of volume pressed parts on time & at competitive price.

Tool protection systems are fitted in place for both small and high ton pressing operations, ensuring smooth running and minimal down time. This ultimately results in general reduction in maintenance for clients tools.
