Advanced Metal Stamping & Fabrication Processes

Metal stamping is the process of transforming flat sheet metal into a net shape or near-net shape part. 

In a single-stage metal stamping process, each stroke of the press produces a part; in a multi-stage metal stamping process, the material moves through a series of stamping stations, each of which performs a different forming process and takes the material one step closer to its final form. Progressive stamping uses one tool that performs multiple operations on one hit to make a complete part.

The metal stamping process may involve one or more of the following actions:

  • Bending
  • Hemming
  • Blanking
  • Ironing
  • Curling
  • Piercing
  • Cutting
  • Stretching
  • Drawing
  • Reducing/necking
  • Embossing
