Stamping is the general term used to describe punching, piercing, bending, coining, embossing, etc. of metal parts generally from sheet stock or strip material.
The process is capable of producing consistent tolerances, thickness and finish. Stamping has further advantages of shorter lead times and reduction in the costs of the end product.
The stamping process is achieved by passing the material through a stamping die mounted on a stamping press. The stamping dies can be divided up into two main categories depending on the complexity of the part to be produced.
One or more single stage dies are used to produce a simple component feature for each stroke of the die and progressive stamping dies use multiple cutting and forming operations simultaneously as the material is advanced through the stamping die to form the shape required.
