What is the function of metal stamping?


Metal stamping is a process that involves stamping or pressing metal plates into different forms. Some different types of metal stamping include stamping, deep drawing, pressing, embossing, bending, flanging and stamping. The most common medium for it  is sheet metal, but it can also be done on other types of materials, such as polystyrene. The stamping process can be repeated in several steps to produce a specific object, which makes stamping economically advantageous.

In many cases, the initial stamping process involves simulation. Metalworking companies can use specifications, dimensions and blueprints to test products under construction. Once built into test kits, they can be tested for durability. These tests may include analysis of possible defects such as wrinkling, splitting, and thinning. This simulation saves time and money for recruiting manufacturing companies, as the analysis conducted results in a small batch of products for testing.

Due to its versatility, it can benefit a wide range of industries. The automotive industry often USES metal stamping to produce large Numbers of parts with minimal labor and resources. The Marine, medical, construction and aerospace industries all use metal stamping to make their parts and products.

 

Types and applications of stamping parts


Stamping parts are widely used in a variety of applications, especially those involving three-dimensional designs, letters or other surface engraving features. Such stamping products are commonly used by manufacturers of household appliances, automobile companies, lighting industries, telecommunications services, aerospace industries, medical equipment manufacturers and electronics companies. Chances are, the products in your home have parts made by metal stamping, as it is used for everything from home appliances to cars.

Specific products and components can be simple stamping parts, such as metal clips, springs, weights, gaskets and brackets, or more complex designs, such as those in engine mounts or friction plates. The process is used to produce two parts for large machines as well as very detailed small parts. Microprecision stamping can make parts up to 0.002 inches in diameter.

Electronic stamping parts are electronic components manufactured by metal stamping process. They are used in a variety of industries, from home electronics and appliances to telecommunications and aerospace. Electronic stamping parts are available in a variety of metals, including copper, copper alloys, aluminum and steel, as well as more expensive metals such as platinum and gold. Electronic components produced by metal stamping include terminals, contacts, lead frames, springs and pins. They can be made of ferrous or nonferrous metal materials. Metal stamping parts are widely used in computers, electronic equipment and medical equipment. Because various stamping processes can form special shapes, many electronic products are made by this cold forming process.

 

Basic knowledge of metal stamping


Metal stamping is a manufacturing process used to convert flat metal plates into specific shapes. This is a complex process that can include many metal forming techniques - blanking, punching, bending and piercing, to name a few.

Thousands of companies in the United States provide metal stamping services for industries in the automotive, aerospace, medical and other markets. With the development of the global market, the demand for a large number of complex parts produced quickly is increasing.

1.      Metal stamping is a fast and economical solution to meet this mass manufacturing need. Manufacturers who need to cover their projects with metal parts often look for three important qualities:

2.      High quality/durability

3.      Low cost

4.      Fast turnaround time

 

Design process of metal stamping


Metal stamping is a complex process that can include many metal forming processes - blanking, punching, bending and punching. Blanking: this process is about cutting rough contours or product shapes. This phase is about minimizing and avoiding burrs, which can increase your part costs and lead times. This step is used to determine hole diameter, geometry/taper, edge to hole spacing, and insert the first hole.

 

What are the advantages of metal stamping?


Cost effective. It is faster and requires less labor and machine work, making it the most cost-effective metal forming method available and the perfect way to make a large number of products.

This is a highly automated process that can be combined with secondary operations, including in-die tapping, in-die welding, automatic nut insertion, etc. This increases the overall value of the stamping parts.

High precision. Today's techniques are very sophisticated and complex, the most accurate way to handle the most complex and complex shapes. Under normal conditions, stamping parts do not need to be reprocessed to meet specified tolerances. Even when multiple products are cut together, it is still a consistent high quality process.

Stamping parts with high strength, high stiffness, light weight, perfect metal surface treatment performance, including coating, coating, powder coating, electroplating, etc.

Less material waste than other metal forming techniques.

Simple operation does not necessarily require a high level of skill.

 

Are there any shortcomings in metal stamping?


It requires up-front tooling, which makes small batch or short-term production expensive and inefficient - because developing and manufacturing tooling takes longer delivery times, and there may be additional tooling modification costs and difficulties if later design changes are required.

 

Conclusion


The invention of stamped parts brings convenience to people's life. The use of metal stamping technology can promote the development of many industries.
