Metal Stamping

Metal stamping is a manufacturing process where metal sheets are pressed or stamped using a die to create specific shapes, patterns, or forms. This process is commonly used in mass production for creating components such as automotive parts, appliances, and industrial components.

Professional stamping offers high precision and efficiency in shaping metal materials, making it a cost-effective method for large-scale production. The process can be used to create a wide range of parts with complex geometries.

Crucial in Industries

In addition to its efficiency, stamping also offers high repeatability and consistency, ensuring that each part produced is virtually identical to the last. This is crucial in industries such as automotive and electronics, where consistency and quality control are paramount.

Metal Stamping FAQs

What materials can be stamped?

Many metals and alloys can be stamped. Just make sure they are soft and malleable enough. These include steel, aluminum, copper, and brass. Even stainless steel can be stamped up to a certain thickness. Thin foils to sheets several millimeters thick can be processed. Some plastics, cardboard and even textiles can be stamped in addition to metals.

How is the correct tool geometry selected for the desired die form?

The correct tool geometry depends on the desired die shape, the material, the material thickness and the die cutting parameters. Experts select the geometry using CAD software for design and simulation. Standard tools are available, but special tools may be required for complex shapes.

What tolerances can be achieved with the stamping process?

The tolerances achievable in stamping depend on the material, tool, parameters and machine accuracy. Typical tolerances range from ±0.05 mm to ±0.3 mm. Tighter tolerances require precision machining or special processes such as laser cutting.

What is the cost of stamping?

The cost of stamping depends on the tool, material, machine and quantity. Special tools, high quality materials and precise machines increase the cost. The cost per piece decreases as the quantity increases.

What are the alternatives to stamping?

Stamping is not always the best choice. Depending on the requirements, laser cutting (precise, flexible, expensive), water jet cutting (versatile, slow), nibbling (simple, imprecise) or forming (complex, precise) can be considered, and the choice of process depends on the stamping shape, material, quantity and precision.
