Furthermore, it is well on the materials that the tools and thermal and chemical treatments punches and dies are made, which enhances durability thereof as a better finish in the manufactured parts.
Another evolution of this technology is undoubtedly the versatility of Needs work supported by powerful CAD / CAM design and management assistance manufacturing plant, the quick change tooling can change any work in few minutes later load programs located on servers via network communications.
