Metal stamping is a manufacturing process used to convert a flat sheet of metal into a specific shape. It is a complex process that may include many metal forming techniques - under molding, punching, bending and piercing, to name just a few.
Here is the information I found on the internet about stamping parts, I hope you find it helpful.
Introduction of stamping
Advantages of stamping parts
Stamping (also known as pressing) is the process by which flat metal in blank or coil form is placed in a press and formed into a net shape by tools and die surfaces. Stamping includes various sheet metal forming manufacturing processes such as punching, blanking, embossing, bending, flanging and embossing using a machine press or stamping machine. This process is usually performed on sheet metal, but can also be used for other materials such as polystyrene. Progressive dies are usually fed from a steel coil, the coil spool used for unwinding, into a straightener to flatten the coil, and then into a feeder to allow the material to enter the press and die at a predetermined feed length. Depending on the complexity of the part, the number of stations in the die can be determined.
Stamping involves placing a flat sheet of metal in coil or blank form into a stamping press. In the press, tools and die surfaces form the metal into the desired shape. Punching, blanking, bending, embossing, embossing and flanging are all stamping techniques used to shape metal.
Before the material can be formed, the stamping professional must design the tooling through CAD/CAM engineering techniques. These designs must be as accurate as possible to ensure that each punch and bend maintains the proper clearances for optimal part quality. A single 3D model of a tool can contain hundreds of parts, so the design process is often very complex and time-consuming.
Once the tool design is finalized, manufacturers can use a variety of machining, grinding, wire EDM and other fabrication services to complete their production.
A significant number of companies around the world provide metal stamping services, supplying parts to industries in the automotive, aerospace, medical and other markets. As the global marketplace grows, the need for rapid production of large quantities of complex parts continues to increase.
Metal stamping is a fast and cost-effective solution to meet this high-volume manufacturing demand. Manufacturers who need to stamp metal parts for their projects are often looking for three important qualities.
