What is Metal Stamping?

As the name implies, the process involves the application of high amounts of pressure to flat metal sheets so that they can be turned into a specific shape. A complex manufacturing process such as punching, blanking, embossing, coining, flanging, piercing, and bending entails a number of steps and techniques. In order to make a large number of identical metal components, a high-speed and low-cost manufacturing process is used.

During the stamping process, the part can be shaped to the desired shape with the use of one single stroke of the stamping press, or it can involve a series of stages where progressive dies are used to gradually shape the component. Although it is generally done using sheet metal in the stamping process, there are other flat materials that can also be shaped using the stamping process.

With the help of dies and stamping presses, flat sheet metal can be turned into a desired part or component by using a process that is also known as ‘pressing’ or a cold-forming process. In the stamping press, sheet metal blanks are fed into a tool and die surface that creates the required shape from the blanks that are fed into the press.

In terms of metal forming, stamping refers to the process in which a manufacturer uses custom tooling and stamping techniques to produce parts that meet the specifications of their customers.

Several industries use this process in order to meet the demand of high volume production and to produce identical precision parts in large quantities.

Metal Stamping Capabilities

We offer a variety of metal stamping methods to ensure that customers get the best manufacturing solution. There are also other specialized techniques within these categories, such as deep drawing, hydroforming, and transfer stamping which have specific applications and advantages depending on the specifics of a given project.

  • Blanking is a metal cutting process that involves cutting out pieces from a sheet as an initial step before forming. Fineblanking is a specialized variation of blanking that produces precise cuts with smooth edges and a flat surface. This process is often used in the production of parts that require high precision and accuracy, such as those used in the aerospace and medical industries. Fineblanking is capable of producing parts with tight tolerances and minimal burrs, making it an ideal choice for applications where precision and quality are critical.
  • Coining is a metal forming process that creates small round workpieces by applying significant force to the metal. This process not only shapes the metal into the desired form but also hardens it, resulting in a stronger and more durable final product. Additionally, coining removes burrs and rough edges, resulting in a smooth and polished surface finish. This process is commonly used in the production of small precision parts, such as those used in the electronics and medical industries.
  • Punching is a metal forming process that involves the removal of material from a workpiece, as opposed to blanking which involves removing material to create a workpiece. In punching, a punch tool is used to create a hole or other shape in the workpiece by applying pressure and shearing the material. This process is commonly used in the production of metal parts that require holes or other specific shapes, such as those used in the construction, automotive, and electronics industries.
  • Embossing is a metal forming process that creates a three-dimensional design on the surface of the metal. This design can be either raised above the surface or created through a series of depressions. The embossing process involves pressing the metal into a die with a specific design or pattern, which causes the metal to deform and take on the desired shape. This technique is commonly used in the production of decorative metal parts, such as those used in the automotive, jewelry, and furniture industries.
  • Bending is a metal forming process that involves the deformation of a workpiece on a single axis to create profiles in U, V, or L shapes. This technique is typically achieved by clamping one side of the workpiece and bending the other over a die, or by pressing the metal into or against a die. Flanging is a variation of bending that is used to create tabs or other specific parts of a workpiece, rather than the entire piece. This process is commonly used in the production of various metal parts, such as those used in the construction and manufacturing industries.
  • Deep Draw Stamping is a metal forming process that produces stampings with deep cavities, such as enclosed rectangles. This process results in rigid pieces as the metal undergoes extreme deformation, which compresses its structure into a more crystalline form. In addition to deep draw stamping, standard draw stamping is also commonly used. This process involves shallower dies that are used to shape the metal into the desired form.
  • Progressive Die Stamping is a metal forming process that utilizes multiple dies and steps to create parts with greater depth than what can be achieved through single dies. It also allows for the creation of multiple geometries per part as it progresses through various dies. This technique is particularly well-suited for producing large and high-volume parts, such as those used in the automotive industry. Transfer die stamping is a similar process, but it differs from progressive die stamping in that the workpiece is attached to a metal strip that is pulled through the entire process, while transfer die stamping removes the workpiece and moves it along a conveyor.

Metal Stamping Materials

In manufacturing and fabrication, a diverse selection of alloys and metals are available in sheet form. The choice of material to use depends on various factors, including weldability, formability, strength, weight, cost, and the corrosion resistance of the material.
