High Precision Metal Stampings
High precision metal stamping is a fast and cost-effective solution for manufacturing a variety of complex products. Metal stamping uses high tonnage presses and stamping dies to forge sheets of metal into complete or semi-complete intricate stamped parts.
Precision metal stamping improves the speed and accuracy of complex metal stamping projects by allowing the stamping, folding, drawing, or piercing of a product into a single operation or series of operations.
Progressive Die and Stamping offers you the cost-efficiency advantage that precision metal stamping affords while also offering you the best in class quality control and accuracy. From design to finished product, every piece we manufacture is custom made for your specific project. Our capabilities also allow us to save your tooling project for future orders, thus saving design and manufacturing time for any long- or short-run metal stamping projects.
Choosing the Right Metal Stamping Process for Your Project
Depending on the design and the quantities required for your metal stamping projects, different precision metal stamping processes can create the intricate stamped parts you need. Due to the complexity of progressive dies, it is important to address all the factors that contribute to achieving the desired level of part quality including blank position, pilots, blank boundary, and stretch-web deformation. As a versatile manufacturer, Progressive Die and Stamping offers our customers both low-volume and high-volume precision stamping options.
Low Volume Precision Stamping
For low volume precision stamping and prototype metal stamping projects, we use “single stage” tools that perform one stamping operation at a time.
High Volume Precision Stamping
More complex parts and high volume precision stamping requires “progressive tooling” that advances the part through a series of dies to manufacture intricate stamped parts, without the need to handle it numerous times or reset the stamping machine.
The decision to produce a part in progressive die depends on size, complexity, and volume of production. Progressive die stamping is used to produce high volume part runs, which keeps costs significantly lower than other production types.
High Precision Metal Stamping Services
Progressive Die and Stamping take pride in providing precision metal stamping services for small and large quantity orders and for customers in all industries. From simple flat metal parts to complex three-dimensional shapes, we have the precision stamping capabilities to meet any customer requirements. Our high-volume precision metal stamping services include:
This precision stamping process is ideal for simpler intricate stamped parts and those that specify flatness or straightness. It is also useful for producing flat blanks for prototyping, and for low quantity metal stamping projects that require further processing.
In addition, a compound die will perform multiple cuts or punches in one stroke, as compared to multiple strokes. This is a very cost-effective method for metal stampings method that keeps labor and die costs down. Compound dies are often used to stamp simpler flat parts such as washers.
Progressive die stamping is preferred for complex or intricate metal stamping projects that require multiple operations (forming, hole punching, etc.). This process is the preferred precision stamping method for high volume metal stamping orders of all kinds.
The progressive die stamping process consists of several individual workstations, each of which performs one or more different operations on the part. The part is transferred from station to station by the stock strip and is cut out of the strip in the final operation.
