Quality stamped metal or combined metal/plastic components in the form of miniaturized modern mechatronics are capable of converting electrical energy into single-axis or multi-axis motion sequences very efficiently and at low cost. This in turn is one of the prerequisites for realizing higher power density with simultaneously reduced and weight-optimized device dimensions. But that’s not the only way to conserve resources and protect the environment. This is because the sophisticated, multifunctional combination tools and the more and more electrically operated punching machines and equipment also play their part in the sustainable, energy-efficient series/mass production of high-quality punched/fineblanked parts.
