Stamping & Bending

Stamping (also known as pressing) is the process of placing flat sheet metal in either blank or coil form into a stamping press where a tool and die surface forms the metal into a net shape. Stamping includes a variety of sheet-metal forming manufacturing processes, such as punching using a machine press or stamping press, blanking, embossing, bending, flanging, and coining.  This could be a single stage operation where every stroke of the press produces the desired form on the sheet metal part, or could occur through a series of stages. The process is usually carried out on sheet metal, but can also be used on other materials, such as polystyrene.

Stamping is usually done on cold metal sheet.

Metal stamping is the most eficient method to produce metal components. Stamping specialized metal parts is no problem through customized tooling like progressive dies.  We specialize in stamping high quality, high volume custom metal parts with fast turnaround times

The sheet metal is elastically deformed at the pressure of the upper or lower mold of the bending machine, and then enters the plastic deformation. At the beginning of the plastic bending, the sheet is free to bend. With the upper or lower mold Pressure, the plate and the lower surface of the V-shaped groove is gradually tightened, while the radius of curvature and bending arm also gradually become smaller, continue to press until the end of the trip, so that the upper and lower mold and the board three points close contact, Complete a V-bend, is commonly known as the bending.
