Benefits Of Sheet Metal Stamping

  • The basic operating principle of Metal Stamping Parts is very simple: place large tools on a mold, place them in a machine that can quickly apply a large amount of force, and then use them to press metal objects into the desired shape.

    Sheet metal stamping machines can usually perform several different processes:

    Squash metal. One of the most basic operations of an imprinter is to flatten metal objects. You can do this to make the object smooth or thin.

    Forged round metal. This is similar to flattening because it thins the workpiece, but this process is usually used for wires rather than metal plates. The forged wire narrows at one end, making it easier to insert into the opening.

    Perforated metal. The tools and dies of sheet metal presses can not only flatten metal, but also penetrate entire metal parts. This will create an opening that can be used to connect multiple workpieces.

    Embossed metal. Rather than making a small hole in a metal plate, it is better to press the metal plate into a specific shape (such as a coin) using the tool and die of the metal plate punch.
    Since sheet metal stampers can only work on unforged cold metal plates, they must rely on extreme forces to get the job done, which is why these machines often have very powerful motors.
    What are the benefits of sheet metal stamping?
    The advantage of this cold forming process is that it requires almost no secondary operations or waiting for the workpiece to cool.

    It also helps reduce production waste by reforming the metal rather than cutting it, especially when using piercing operations. Generally, to cut a hole in sheet metal, you must cut off a portion of the metal, but punching a hole in a sheet metal part will only move the metal away to form the hole, without generating unnecessary metal shavings.
