What Is Metal Stamping?
Sheet Metal Stamping Dies are used to produce high precision results over and over again. This is an integral part of any manufacturing process as metal stamping dies can achieve high levels of accuracy and stability. Products of metal stamping can be seen everywhere, from the computer that you are using, to the lamp on your desk.

How Does Metal Stamping Work?
Metal Stamping includes many different types of sheet-metal forming manufacturing processes. Parts of the process include punching (using a machine or stamping press), blanking, coining, embossing, and bending. The majority of stampings are done on sheet metal, but can also be used on other materials, such as aluminum, steel, plastic, psa, and foil.

Process that results in a V, U, or channel shape in any bendable material (most often sheet metal) without fracturing. An example would be the bottom of a drink can.

A shearing operation that uses a punch to create a blank from sheet metal or a plate.

Progressive Die
Metal Stamping die that pushes a sheet of metal through a series of operations until a finished part is made. An example would be the lid of a soda can (separate operations for the lid and pull tab).

Compound Die
Metal Stamping Die that performs more than one operation in a single press.

Deep Draw
Process where a drawing press is used to form sheet metal through the mechanical action of a punch. An example would be your kitchen sink.

Process of cutting the threads in a hole. An example of this would be a nut, where a bolt screws into.

A precision metal stamping form used most often where high relief or very fine features are needed. An example would be money (quarter, nickel, dime), badges, and medals.

Metalworking process where soft malleable metals are shaped and designed by hammering on the reverse side.
