Besides pure forming processes, separation methods are also especially important in sheet metal working. The manufacture of a sheet metal part is almost always associated with separation processes. The necessity of separation presents itself both in the production of blanks and in the manufacture of the final workpiece contour. The separation process is carried out either mechanically by cutting processes or thermically by flame or laser cutting.
