What is Metal Parts Stamping?
Metal stamping uses a stamping press to shape flat sheet metal. It is also called stamping blanks. Depending on the parts you need, the tool and die surface use various techniques to work the sheet metal.
Our manufacturing process includes the following techniques based on your specifications:
It is more likely to use CAD/CAM to design a stamping project for making precise metal parts, and identical metal parts. It takes patience and requires attention to detail to ensure precision and that all the final pieces fit together as intended.
Types of Metal Parts Stamping
Metal stamping projects use various techniques to achieve the desired shape, size, consistency, and speed. While each type has its advantages, they all work for different purposes and industries according to the pieces they produce.
Metal Fabrication Process Is Progressive
With progressive stamping, we move strip metal through a progressive stamping press, where it passes from one station to the next. Each station performs a specific function, including punching, bending, and cutting the metal.
Often, progressive stamping requires wide variety machines, especially when a project involves complex parts. Progressive stamping offers the advantages of a quick turnaround and creating repeated, uniform pieces. It also has the lowest labor cost for each stamping type.
Fourslide Metal Stamping
Fourslide stamping uses four tools, with each one bending the metal into the desired shape simultaneously.
Fourslide stamping simplifies the creation of complex parts. While it doesn’t create pieces with as much uniformity as progressive stamping, it makes changing or adjusting the design easier when a project requires many parts with different bends.
Deep Draw Is a Technique Through The Metal Fabrication
Deep drawing is a technique where we use a punch to feed a blank into a die. Often in the automotive or aerospace industries, it works best for projects where a customer needs products of different diameters.
Deep drawing uses fewer raw materials than other stamping processes. It also works well for producing less complicated pieces at high volume.
