Custom Aluminum Stamping
Aluminum is lightweight, conductive, strong, and maintains an aesthetically pleasing appearance, making aluminum an ideal material for stamping applications. Aluminum metal stamping involves various processes that transform a standard piece of aluminum into a part or component custom manufactured to the user’s specifications. Aluminum stamping can be performed through numerous operations, including:
- Forming: Univeral term used to describe the processes used to shape metalwork
- Blanking: Utilizing a die to cut pieces from aluminum sheet metal
- Piercing: Uses a punch and a die to create clean notches or holes into a part with tight tolerances
- Drawing: Utilizes tensile pressure to shape and manipulate into desired shapes and thicknesses

Metal Stamping Process for Aluminum
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 of 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.
Advantages of Aluminum Machine Stamping
Since aluminum is a softer metal that provides excellent workability, many benefits are associated with aluminum metal stamping. Aluminum will not burn and provides increased strength as it gets colder. Aluminum metal stamping offers additional benefits, including:
- Excellent strength-to-weight ratio
- Increased ductility
- Reflective of light and heat
- Easily recyclable
Industrial Aluminum Stamping for Medical Manufacturing, Construction, & More
Aluminum is used by every major industry worldwide. 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:
