Sheet Metal Stamping Dies presents information on press-working sheet metal, die design, and die manufacturing. It details the knowledge and skills needed for the effective design of dies for sheet metal cutting, forming, and deep drawing operations. It is an invaluable resource for anyone looking for detailed information about die design and the manufacture of stamping dies.
The Sheet Metal/HVAC Pro Calc is a versatile calculator that enables tradesmen to calculate complex problems with dedicated key functions that are labeled in standard industry terms. The calculator has other advanced built-in construction-math functions to enable HVAC and sheet metal tradesmen to do their work alongside other trades. In addition to the built-in functions, this calculator can handle order of operation, perform square, cube, square root, and cube root calculations, determine ArcK constant for convenient Arc length solutions, and has an offset functions for “S-shaped” bends in ductwork. It can also help solve the layout for wrapper length, centerline radius, and the angle. It works as a regular calculator with typical symbols.
Together, Sheet Metal Stamping Dies and the Sheet Metal/HVAC Pro Calculator are the perfect combination resource, providing instant access to metrics and measurements with the flip of a page and press of a button. This incredible set is a must-have for students and professionals in the field of Sheet Metal.
