- Street and park furniture
- Bending: During bending, the workpiece is bent to form flanges, contours, curls, seams, corrugations and other geometries by means of applying force through hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical machines.
- Conventional shearing: Shearing is a metal cutting process through which flat surfaces cut using a scissors-like action, usually in straight lines.
- Turret Punching: Turret Punching creates shapes in sheet material by successively punching a series of basic shapes. Edges are cut by the shearing action of a punch and die.
- Sawing: Sawing is a type of cutting in which the cutting tool is a blade that has a series of teeth, with each tooth removing a small amount of material. Sawing is typically used to shape raw material to the approximate size of the part, prior to additional processes.
- Tapping: Tapping produces internal threads in the workpiece. This involves use of a tool with multiple cutting teeth.
- Boring: Boring produces circular internal profiles in hollow workpiece or on a hole made by drilling or another process.
- Turning: Turning rotates the workpiece about its axis while applying cutting tools to create a desired shape.
- Drilling: Drilling produces holes in a workpiece using a fluted cutting tool.
- Milling: Milling removes small chips using a rotating cutter that moves in three axiis.
- Grinding: Grinding is a chip removal process in which the cutting tool is an abrasive grain wheel. Different types of grinding include Surface grinding, Cylindrical grinding, Internal grinding and Centerless grinding.
- Laser Cutting: Laser cutting involves focusing a beam of high density energy on the surface of the workpiece. The beam evaporates portions of the workpiece in a controlled manner.
