Forming

Forming is the metalworking operation of shaping metal parts through permanent mechanical deformation. This process is characterized by extremely high loads and stresses, that have to be accommodated by heavy and large machinery. At present, RKB provides many players of the sector with its engineering expertise and top-quality products to meet a wide range of bending and shearing needs.
