What Is Stamping?
SHEET METAL PRESS SHOP Stamping or pressing is a manufacturing process used to convert flat metal sheets into final shapes. In this process, a flat sheet of metal, either in the form of a blank or in the form of a coil, is placed in a stamping press where a tool and die surface forms the metal into a final shape. Stamping encompasses a variety of sheet metal forming manufacturing processes, such as punching using a machine press or stamping press, blanking, embossing, bending, flanging, and coining. This could be a one-step process where each stroke of the press creates the desired shape on the sheet metal part, or it could be done through a series of steps. The process is usually carried out on sheet metal, but can also be used on other materials such as polystyrene.
Types Of Metal Stamping
1. Progressive Die Stamping
SHEET METAL PRESS SHOP Progressive die stamping features a number of stations, each with a unique function. First, strip metal is feds through a progressive stamping press. The strip unrolls steadily from a coil and into the die press, where each station in the tool then performs a different cut, punch, or bend. The actions of each successive station add to the work of the previous stations, resulting in a completed part.
2. Four slide Stamping
SHEET METAL PRESS SHOP Four slide, or multi-slide, involves horizontal alignment and four different slides; in other words, four tools are used simultaneously to shape the work piece. This process allows for intricate cuts and complex bends to develop even the most complex parts. Four slide metal stamping can offer several advantages over traditional press stamping that make it an ideal choice for many applications. Some of these advantages include:
- Versatility for more complex parts
- More flexibility for design changes
SHEET METAL PRESS SHOP Deep drawing involves pulling a sheet metal blank into the die via a punch, forming it into a shape. The method is referred to as “deep drawing” when the depth of the drawn part exceeds its diameter. This type of forming is ideal for creating components that need several series of diameters and is a cost-effective alternative to turning processes, which typically require using up more raw materials.
Stamping also called pressing involves placing flat sheet metal, in either coil or blank form, into a stamping press. In the press, a tool and die surface form the metal into the desired shape. Punching, blanking, bending, coining, embossing, and flanging are all stamping techniques used to shape the metal.
- Bending – the material is deformed or bent along a straight line.
- Flanging – the material is bent along a curved line.
- Embossing – the material is stretched into a shallow depression. Used primarily for adding decorative patterns. See also Repoussé and chasing.
- Blanking – a piece is cut out of a sheet of the material, usually to make a blank for further processing.
- Coining – a pattern is compressed or squeezed into the material. Traditionally used to make coins.
- Drawing – the surface area of a blank is stretched into an alternate shape via controlled material flow. See also deep drawing.
- Stretching – the surface area of a blank is increased by tension, with no inward movement of the blank edge. Often used to make smooth auto body parts.
- Ironing – the material is squeezed and reduced in thickness along a vertical wall. Used for beverage cans and ammunition cartridge cases.
- Reducing/Necking – used to gradually reduce the diameter of the open end of a vessel or tube.
- Curling – deforming material into a tubular profile. Door hinges are a common example.
- Hemming – folding an edge over onto itself to add thickness. The edges of automobile doors are usually hemmed.
