High-quality aluminum is an ideal type of material for stamping applications. Aluminum is lightweight, conductive, strong and maintains an aesthetically pleasing appearance. The aluminum metal stamping process involves a range of processes that transforms a standard piece of aluminum into a specific part or component that is custom manufactured to the user’s exact specifications. Aluminum stamping can be performed through numerous operations, including:
Tempco Manufacturing provides fully customized aluminum stamping services for your specific project needs. We have the knowledge and expertise to turn a standard piece of aluminum into a custom part that will meet or exceed your expectations, no questions asked!

Aluminum Stamping Process
Aluminum metal stamping is a cold working process that utilizes work hardening of the material to accentuate the metal’s beneficial qualities. Aluminum parts that have been stamped provide greater physical strength than unworked raw aluminum material.
At Tempco, we utilize aluminum stamping presses with capacities up to 440 tons and precision stamping dies and tooling that we make in-house. We can create parts as thin as 0.002” while maintaining tolerances that often exceed industry standards. Our customer base is spread across all industries; with short- to medium-run metal stamping and sheet metal prototyping capabilities we can deliver parts and components of any shape or size.
Aluminum Stamping Advantages
Since aluminum is a softer metal that provides extremely good workability, there are many benefits that are associated with aluminum metal stamping. Aluminum will not burn and provides increased strength as it gets colder. Some of the other benefits explicitly offered through aluminum metal stamping, include:
- Excellent strength-to-weight ratio
- Increased ductility
- Reflective of light and heat
- Easily recyclable
Aluminum Stamping Applications
Due to its many advantageous qualities, aluminum is used by every major industry in the world. Aluminum is non-magnetic, exceptionally durable, and has a relatively low melting point. It will not rust and maintains superb dimensional stability. Some of the industries that most regularly utilize aluminum stamping, include:
