Stamping or pressing is a manufacturing process used to work flat metal sheets into a final shape. In this process, a flat sheet of metal, either in billet or coil form, is placed in a die, where the surface of the tool and die form the final shape of the metal.
Stamping includes a variety of sheet metal forming manufacturing processes, such as punching using a machine press or stamping press, embossing, bending, edging, and coining. Pressing can be a one-step process, where each movement of the press creates the desired shape on the sheet metal part, but stamping can also be carried out in several steps.
Advantages of stamping
Compared to traditional metal cutting and forming methods, metal stamping has many advantages. Here are just a few to consider:
Metal stamping is the fastest method for producing large quantities of components.
After the initial cost of creating the die, metal stamping costs significantly less than other methods.
Metal stamping can create parts with very precise specifications.
All parts produced by metal punching are identical – this is not always the case with traditional methods.
