This is a general name for an production and processing line that includes several stages such as hammering, impressing, bending and other methods of changing the shape of a surface made of metal or another material. In this process the material is fed along a production line composed of several stations, at each of which one of the actions mentioned above takes place, until the finished product is created. In this process, monitoring the line is crucial, due to the precision required of the placement of the raw material at each station. The production costs under this technology are determined by the number of stations, and the actions that comprise the production line will determine the cost of the tools used in the process. This technology is suitable for simple designs and high production volumes.
