Title: PRESS TOOLING FOR SHEET METAL OF RELATIVELY LARGE DIMENSIONS, NOTABLY FOR MOTOR VEHICLES
Abstract:
The abstract relates to press tooling for pressing sheet metal of relatively large dimensions notably for motor vehicles. According to the invention, the press tooling is characterized in that the vertical posts (9) of the clamp (8) are each able to comprise, between their end and the corresponding socket (12) at least one foil (19) allowing elastic deformation of the clamp (8) by the press and the press rods so as to ensure uniform clamping of the sheet over the entire bearing surface (10) of the clamp (8). The invention finds an application in the automotive industry.
