Precision Tooling Equipment
Machine tooling creates the components needed to fulfill production manufacturing. Using tool and die equipment provides the necessary precision when completing these operations to ensure products meet application specifications. Metal and die stamping are versatile processes that design and engineer various tools for manufacturing parts or components for numerous industries.
Metal & Die Stamping Benefits & Features
For tool and die manufacturing, metal stamping and die stamping provide valuable advantages over other production methods. Opting for either of these techniques offers cost-effective solutions and a higher level of automation, allowing for longer production runtimes and creating a more efficient production process.
What is Metal Stamping?
Using various metal forming techniques, metal stamping converts flat metal sheets into several shapes that can be configured for precision tooling. Many tools can be engineered from this process, including the following:
- Cutting Tools
- Forming Dies
- Jigs and Fixtures
- Station Tooling
- Progressive Tooling
- Drawing Tools
- Welding and Inspection Fixtures
- Sheet Metal Dies
What is Die Stamping?
Like metal stamping, custom die stamping is an operation that forms sheet metal into various shapes and profiles. Utilizing a cold-forming process, die stamping takes a metal strip, cutting and shaping it using dies to create the desired profile.
Precision Tooling Capabilities & Equipment
Tempco is proud to offer precision tooling with state-of-the-art, high-technology equipment. Our capabilities include CNC EDM machining, CNC vertical machining, vertical milling, lathes, band saws, band filers, surface grinders, and drill presses. We also provide additional services to complement our metal stamping processes.
The most common operation used in both metal and die stamping is cutting, but several metal forming techniques may be used; blanking, notching, trimming, piercing, lancing, and shearing are also used to fabricate the appropriate profile to the required specifications.
Precision Tooling vs. Super Precision Tooling
Super precision tooling equipment provides the highest level of efficiency and parts uniformity, incorporating design and hardware/software integration for a high-quality production tool machine. Providing tighter tolerances than precision tooling, super precision tooling produces tolerance standards and desired geometric form.
The fixture equipment of super precision tooling machines requires stiffness and stability to withstand the high-pressure force of the production process. Customization is also possible with super precision tooling. Super precision tooling is preferred to precision tooling, and it performs similarly while providing the advantages of extra tight tolerances.
