Metal stamping delivers high production volumes, capable of hundreds to thousands of parts per hour. The automated presses rapidly cycle with great consistency.
Modern stamping uses high accuracy tooling and processes that can hold tolerances as tight as ±0.001 in. for repeatability.
Stamping supports high mix production with the ability to rapidly changeover dies and reprogram presses. A variety of metal alloys and thickness can be run.
Enhance metal stamped parts through surface treatments like powder coating, plating, painting and more. Improve durability and aesthetics for production components.
|Applied colored powder cured into a paint-like coat
|Abrasion/corrosion resistant, colorful finishes
|Electrochemical process produces oxide layer
|Corrosion protection, wear resistance
|Liquid paint applied and cured
|Color/graphics, corrosion/scratch resistance
|Electroplated metal coatings
|Corrosion protection, conductivity, aesthetics
|Chemical treatment forms inert surface
|Enhanced corrosion resistance (stainless steel)
|Laser etches graphics/text into material
|Permanent markings for branding, serial numbers
Metal stamping produces high volumes of parts like body panels, brackets, gears, and transmission components for low cost and strength.
Lightweight aircraft ducting and sturdy engine mounts are fabricated through stamping of aluminum and titanium alloys.
Thin, precision metal chassis, frames, and shields are stamped for consumer electronics and industrial devices.
High volume steel chair frames, brackets, and table legs were mass produced via metal stamping, providing affordable but durable furniture components.
Aluminum cans and steel bottle caps were stamped to high precision tolerances at rapid rates up to 2000 per minute to meet beverage industry demands.
Automotive steel alloy brackets for assembling drivetrain and engine components were metal stamped with robotic press tending for consistent quality and fast production.
Metal stamping uses presses and dies to form, cut, punch, and shape metal sheets into high volume parts.
Yes, metal stamping can be cheaper than metal casting for mass production of metal components.
No, stamping forms sheet metal while engraving etches designs into materials using a laser or rotary tool.
