Everyone who works in industrial sector knows the importance of sheet metals, almost all major and minor industries use sheet metals in one form or another, it could be an integral part of their product or it could be part of the machines that they are using to manufacture products. There are lots of reasons why sheet metals are popular; they are easy to handle, light weight, less expensive, easy to work with, etc. After analysing that sheet working operations are popular, one must wonder what are the machines that are required to work with sheet metals, the answer in most cases is age old conventional means such as hydraulics and pneumatics, but these machines have inherit drawbacks. To address this problem, we thought of using a new principle and that principle is electromagnetism. Basically we used electromagnetic force by storing it in the form of potential energy in a spring and then using it in the form of kinetic energy to do the desired work. Numerous operations such as coining, blanking, perforating, notching, etc. can be performed. With this concept we want to reduce the cost for performing various forming operations on sheet material by using a new principle and application method.
