Metal stamping is a general, catch-all term that describes a variety of metal press forming operations, such as embossing, coining, pressing and blanking. In these types of processes, metals are pressed into a certain form by applying pressure into the surface of a strip or sheet of metal. All of this is done with the assistance of hard tooling.
At Metal Pro, Inc., we are pleased to offer metal stamping in Phoenix, AZ. We often get questions from potential customers about this service, so we have compiled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions we receive. Here are a few of them.
What is a progressive die metal stamping?
These are custom metal stampings that have been made with the assistance of a progressive die stamping machine. The most common types of metal stampings are multi slide, deep drawn and progressive die, with progressive die being by far the most common of all of these. They are particularly popular because of how quickly they are able to work and how accurately they make their cuts and presses.
How does one choose the right process for metal stamping?
With such a variety of metal stamping processes and tools to choose from, it can be a daunting task for prospective customers to figure out exactly what processes need to be used to accomplish the job they have in mind. Our engineers focus mostly on how complex a specific part will be, as well as on the shape requested by the customer. Progressive die stamping is great for parts with more piercings, flatter parts and multiple forms. Deep draw stamping, on the other hand, might be better used in creating stampings that are either taller or deeper than a half of an inch. Multi slide stamping, meanwhile, could be the best process to use in making multiple formed parts. Our engineers analyze the job you have in mind and make the decision from there.
What types of materials can be used in the metal stamping process?
Just about any kind of metal or alloy can be used in metal stamping, though it can vary from product to product. We will work with the customer to determine how best to meet their preferences in a particular stamping job. Commonly used materials include stainless steel, galvanized steel, a wide variety of steel alloys, aluminum and all its alloys, brass and copper.
