Hi. What would you call the type of manufacturing of items made from pressed steele - like tins, baking trays etc? Looking for someone to make something, but don't quite know how to start searching lol

I really can't think of the name you're looking for, but I do know this could be a mighty expensive thing, as all the machines have to be made for the purpose, with moulds and dies made for that particular job. So unless you need a few thousand components !!!

 

What is it you want to produce ? I may be able to come up with something.

Could be wrong, but I don't think there's a facility for PM's on this forum, and wouldn't want to do anything against the rules !

OK, fair enough :) I'm looking to have something mass produced in the UK from steel or Aluminium, but I don't know the name of the kind of manufacturing I should be looking for....

 

I understand there will be initial tooling costs, as I've just gone through a similar process with a plastic product. I'd be ordering about 1000 pieces to start with.

Try looking for - Pressworks, or metal pressings.

there's one place I know of, Claridge One-stop engineering, But they're no where near Manchester.

 

I'm sure that if you call into a small local engineering company, they would know of a specialist near you, as they may use them from time to time.
