Metal stamping is a part of our Sheet Metal Fabrication Department. With metal stamping, we deliver high-quality metal stamped tooling to your tooling qualifications. All of our production tooling is maintained internally.
We have stamping qualifications up to 165 tons, and our presses are equipped with feed lines, so we can run all types of tools.
When you choose Advantech for your metal stamping needs, you will receive:
- Capabilities up to 165 tons = flexibility for either higher quantities or special prototype applications
- Access to the Amada EM2510 = scratch-free blanks
- Support for entire process = expert help for everything from designing to building
- Runs for an array of tool types = high-quality compound, simple form, multi-station form, and/or progressive dies
- Custom qualification = production to your unique tool qualification
- Quick Turnaround = efficient and cost-effective metal stamping and punching
- Transportation of your tools to our facilities = convenience for you
Metal stamping is a cost-effective way to form metal using a strong, fast, and durable method. This process is used in industries ranging from large machinery to household products to automotive parts.
Metal stamping works by inserting flat metal sheets into a die and using the mechanical presses to form the metal into the desired shape for the qualifications.
The end-goal of metal stamping is to form the metal into a specific shape. Metal punching is the process used to indent or put holes into sheet metal.
Metal punching is a metal forming technique used most often to create prototypes or lower-quantity, more complex tool orders. It works when sheet metal is positioned between a die and a punch, creating holes or indents when the punch moves downward through the die.
Varying thicknesses of sheet metal can be pushed through the press. It can punch multiple forms such as rounds, squares, rectangles, countersinks, dimples, and more.
The end-goal of metal punching is to put holes in the sheet metal.
