What are the different types of metal stamping processes?PiercingBlankingDrawingCoiningLancingEmbossing In metal stamping processes, the types differ from one another, depending on what shape they achieve. This is done in order to create complex designs for various industries, such as consumer goods, aviation, electronics, telecommunications, automotive manufacturing, food and beverage, and many more. It’s very rare… Continue reading 6 TYPES OF METAL STAMPING PROCESSES

‘Milk run’ die maintenance for high-volume runs in metal stamping shops
What is “milk run” maintenance? It is basically a phrase to describe the regular maintenance of the tools and dies used to produce parts needed. To keep inventory levels in check and pipeline activity at an even keel, they usually are done on a weekly or biweekly basis. You should be able to count on… Continue reading ‘Milk run’ die maintenance for high-volume runs in metal stamping shops
What Is Precision Stamping Technology?
What is stamping technology?Stamping is a manufacturing technology that can make sheets or plates of different thicknesses into the desired shape by mechanical stamping or ramming and does not change the thickness of the original material during the manufacturing process. Stamping technology is widely used in manufacturing engineering for three-dimensional components, cutting, or other special… Continue reading What Is Precision Stamping Technology?
Designing progressive dies
The decision to produce a part progressively is usually determined by two factors: the volume of production and the complexity of the part. These two factors are instrumental in the design and construction of the tooling. It is important to address all factors that will contribute to the desired level of part quality, tool maintenance,… Continue reading Designing progressive dies
Stamping Die Essentials: First, determine the process of making a stamped part
A stamping die is typically a one-of-a-kind, custom-designed tool. Unlike a store-bought item, it doesn’t come with instructions for assembly, operation, and maintenance. If even one of those factors isn’t done correctly, catastrophic tooling and stamping failure can result. But first things first. Should This Part Be Stamped?Before you can even begin to think about… Continue reading Stamping Die Essentials: First, determine the process of making a stamped part
Stamping Die Essentials: Carrier strip design for progressive dies in metalforming
What Is a Carrier Strip?In a progressive die, a strip of material is fed continuously and sequenced through various cutting and forming operations until one or more completed parts are made. For the part to move from station to station, it is tied with a portion of the base material used to make it. This… Continue reading Stamping Die Essentials: Carrier strip design for progressive dies in metalforming
Traveling Clamps for Metal Stamping
Pascal Engineering will present an array of quick-die-change (QDC) solutions for stamping presses, all of which can automate processes to help improve productivity and reduce downtime. One integral part of a QDC system is clamping, and Pascal’s traveling clamps are driven by an air cylinder which allows their strokes to double. Starring at FABTECH: the… Continue reading Traveling Clamps for Metal Stamping
The Challenges of Precision Metal Stamping
A Research and Markets report claims that by 2027 the global metal stamping market will have grown to $250 billion. With demand increasing and evolving tools and new materials for precision metal stamping, the industry must equally adjust to meet the demand. Today’s metal rolling techniques are more progressive than conventional hand processes, but manufacturers… Continue reading The Challenges of Precision Metal Stamping
Rerollers: The Growing Need for Metal Stampers
These are the precision rerollers that produce the dimensional and metallurgical properties that exceed the capabilities of the equipment and narrow size range offered by most service centers. Rerollers are becoming increasingly important each year as companies seek ways to enhance production, increase cost efficiency and, at the same time, produce a better level of… Continue reading Rerollers: The Growing Need for Metal Stampers
Many traditional power press metal stamping companies can perform one only one action: single stroke, short-run stamping.
Many traditional power press metal stamping companies can perform one only one action: single stroke, short-run stamping.progressive-stamped-partsThis process requires one tool for each operation needed to make a finished part — meaning long lead times, high labor costs, and an inability to create intricate or tight-tolerance parts. Luckily there is a stamping process called progressive… Continue reading Many traditional power press metal stamping companies can perform one only one action: single stroke, short-run stamping.
