There are many ways of stamping like as bending, stretching, and forging. Metal stamping parts are widely used in various fields of our life, including electronic devices, auto parts, decorative materials, Etc. According to the nature and use of hardware, it can be divided into steel materials, non-ferrous metal materials, mechanical parts, transmission equipment, auxiliary tools, working tools, building hardware.
Application characteristics of stamping parts
Compared with castings, stamping parts have significant advantages, such as being thin, uniform, light, and having good strength. Stamping can make workpieces with reinforcing ribs and undulations that are difficult to be manufactured by other methods. It improves their strength and toughness. If the precision die is used, the precision of the workpiece can reach the micron level, the repetition accuracy is high, and the specifications are consistent.
The holes, sockets, and bosses can be punched out. If a multi-station continuous die is used, hundreds of pieces can be produced per minute. Complete the feeding, stamping, parts out, waste discharge, and other processes quickly. Generally, metal stamping parts are no longer processed by cutting or only require a small amount of cutting.
Structure and processability of stamping parts
While designing metal stamping parts, It’s necessary to make a structure that meets the user’s requirements. Besides this, it’s also essential to consider making it meet the technological needs of metal stamping parts; that is, the structure of metal stamping parts should adapt to the stamping process. Metal stamping parts with good structural processability can reduce or avoid stamping defects, easily ensure the quality of stamping parts, simplify the stamping process, and improve productivity and reduce production costs. The main factors affecting the process performance of metal stamping parts are the shape, size, accuracy, and material.
The above is the characteristics and structural process of stamping parts. Stamping parts are produced by stamping on the premise of low material consumption. The parts are light in weight and just in hardness. After the plastic deformation of sheet metal, the internal structure of the metal is improved, and the strength of the stamping parts is improved.
The Bottom Line
It has high dimensional accuracy, uniform size with the module, and good interchangeability. No further machining is required to meet the general assembly and use requirements. In the stamping process, because the surface of the material is not damaged, the surface quality is not affected, and the appearance is smooth and beautiful, which provides convenient conditions for surface painting, electroplating, phosphating, and other surface treatments.
