How Does The Metal Stamping Process Work?

At Metal Force we use a process known as metal stamping. Stamping presses have a drive mechanism that causes a difference in appearance. Mechanical, hydraulic, press-frame, gap-frame, c-frame, and straight side are the common drive mechanisms used to create a different stamp in the overall process.  Generating the necessary force to stamp metal parts is the hardest part of metal stamping. Our new, higher-strength steels help to press in the right motion and provide attention to the press design.

Our Metal Stamping Process

To produce a high level of results, we use metal stamping. Our system offers accuracy, stability, and results that you won’t find anywhere else. Parts of the process can include embossing, bending, punching, blanking, and coining. Most stamping is done on sheet metal but can be done with aluminum, plastic, foil, steel, or PSA.

Different Methods of Stamping

Do you have different metal stamping needs? We can provide a variety of options if you are seeking unique stamping requirements. Our results can provide bending without fracturing the material. Progressive die is another method we use to create unique objects including soda can lids. Tapping is another method used to cut threads in a hole. Bolts and screws are made from the tapping process.

Which Metal Fabrication Process Will Boost Production Volume?

When it comes to production costs, how can you keep costs low without sacrificing the quality of your work? It is important to determine the volume of the project to find out which metal fabrication process will provide the best returns.

Selecting a Tooling Option

Determining the right tooling option varies based on the number of parts needed to be produced. Roll forming is popular as it has a lower cost compared to other methods. Press braking is recommended for a low volume metal fabrication process as it can help to produce several parts at a lower cost. Turret and press braking are recommended for smaller parts or low quantity runs.

Reduce Financial Impact

Are you concerned about the cost? Correct forecasting is necessary to help Metal Force determine the right cost amount. Dealing with fabricating sheet metal can be expensive as it will include more labor costs than other methods. The production and assembly costs are normally the most expensive part of metal fabrication.

If you are dealing with high production demands, roll forming and stamping are recommended as they provide a per piece set-up. The more you order and produce, the lower your labor costs will become.
