Types of Metal Stamping Dies

Comments Off on Types of Metal Stamping Dies

Metal stamping is a cold-forming manufacturing process that uses specialized tools (i.e., dies) and equipment (i.e., presses) to form and cut sheet metal into various shapes and sizes. At the start of a stamping operation, the die(s) is/are installed within the press(es), which provide(s) the force needed to turn the material into the desired component. […]

Comments Off on How Does the Cold Forming Process Work?

Metal forming is the process of fashioning or shaping metal objects using mechanical means. It works upon the scientific principle of plastic deformation, which allows the physical shape of the material to remain permanently deformed without adding to or taking away from the material and without changing its mass. Cold forming is one of the […]
