1. Forks, spoons and other cutlery items
Those beautiful forks that you are using while having dinner with your loved ones are manufactured from stainless steel, since it is more durable and in the manufacturing process is used a metal press to form the silverware into shape. The process begins with a square or rectangular piece of metal, which are cut out from larger rolls of metal. Then, the thickness and resistance of the metal is corrected in the rolling process. Then, a company specialised in metal pressing and shaping, like Regent Engineers will cut out the forks from the metal sheet by using a metal press. The shape and design of the form are pre-established, the company following only the outlines of the project. Some companies of this kind even have designers and project engineers that are able to deliver the complicated task of projecting the silverware. Afterwards, the silverware has it rough form, some additional steps are finished off with the buffing and polishing step. So, next time you have your dinner, only think how much somebody worked for you to have that fancy silverware.
