Understanding the Basics of Metal Stamping

Metal stamping is a cold-forming manufacturing process where dies and stamping presses are used to turn rolled or sheet metals into various forms and shapes. Sheet metals are called blanks, and they're fed into a sheet metal stamping press, where they will be pressed using a tool and die to form a new shape.

Several steps are considered in the stamping method, such as punching, coining, flanging, blanking, embossing, and bending. After these processes are done, the metal-stamped products are ready for use.

The importance of each unique metal stamping process:

  • Punching: In this process, the scrap material is removed from the sheet metal once the punch enters the punching die, which leaves a hole in the metal piece.
  • Blanking: Blanking is the shearing and cutting of the sheet metal to remove it from an even larger sheet metal, also known as the primary material. The removed component becomes the desired part of the blank.
  • Coining: Coining is when the edges need to be flattened. It produces a more refined edge, strengthening the sheet material while relieving internal stresses.
  • Embossing: Embossing is necessary when a recessed or raised design is required. The raw material is pressed against a die with the desired format.
  • Flanging: Flanging is a metal stamping process where the metal piece is turned into a flange or a flare using a die, press, or specialized flanging machine. It creates a 90-degree bend in the metal.
  • Bending: This process refers to forming the metals into U, L, or V-shapes. Here, a press brake is used to bend the metals using a die and a punch. It results in a deformation that's stressed above the yield point but below the tensile strength.

Understanding each process allows you to make sure that it’is done correctly and efficiently. Fortunately, our team at Advanced Prototyping Molding knows the importance of these processes, which is imperative to achieve quality results.
