A four-slide is utilized in the manufacturing of stamped or formed components.

These components are made from strip steel or various types of wire shapes. This precision metal stamping and forming process is used to manufacture components of different material sizes, thicknesses, and configurations without the need for secondary operations.

This method is widely used in industries such as automotive, point of purchase, consumer products, and more.
