Presses used industrially to form and shape metal consist of a solid bed on to which a rigid movable platen closes, usually under hydraulic power. Dies of appropriate type are inserted between the two sides of the metal to achieve the necessary shape. These dies may actually cut the metal (stamping and punching) or deform it by stretching the material and producing the required three-dimensional shape.
