Compound Die Stamping
This photo shows a compound die and parts that are produced in one press stroke.
Complex steel parts can be expensive to make – unless you choose the right production method. Compound die stamping produces steel parts swiftly, efficiently and correctly every time. Progressive Die and Stamping provides compound die stamping services to a wide range of customers.
How Compound Die Stamping Works
The system feeds a strip of steel through the compound die, which punches out a part in a single stroke. The system continues to feed the steel strip through the die until all the parts have been punched out.
Advantages of Compound Die Stamping
There are numerous reasons to choose compound die stamping, including:
- Speed: Compound die stamping can produce a part every 3 seconds, or 1200 parts per hour.
- Efficiency: Compound dies can cut complex parts all in one stroke, eliminating the need for multiple dies.
- Repeatability: By creating parts with one die, we’re able to ensure consistency.
- Cost-effectiveness: Because compound dies can produce your part quickly and effortlessly, you can expect to save money.
Dies Made In-House
At Progressive Die and Stamping, we make all of our dies in-house. Maintaining control over die production enables us to be certain that every die matches our customers’ designs. Additionally, because we don’t have to wait for a third party to produce dies, we’re able to reduce lead times and help our customers save money.
Progressive Die and Stamping’s tooling design department may suggest compound dies to meet certain elements on your part prints. For example, compound dies are a smart choice for part prints that include specifications for flatness and straightness.
