The precision metal stamping process, sometimes referred to as progressive metal stamping, is the most popular manufacturing process in metal processing today, enabling a range of industries to produce difficult precision parts in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
The metal stamping process is a common method used by manufacturers for parts used in various equipment applications. Huiyuan Precision has a deep understanding of the advantages and functions of the stamping process to ensure that you get all the benefits when choosing precision metal stamping.
What is precision metal stamping?
The process utilizes a machine equipped with a die to convert sheet metal into custom shapes with extremely tight tolerances, and manufacturers can even complete such workpieces with a single stroke of the press, known as a single-stage operation.
More complex parts may require multiple strokes. This is called a tandem operation. Precision metal stamping is flexible and adaptable, especially beneficial for high-volume production.
Its extremely high level of precision, even for complex parts, is what differentiates this process from similar machining options. Precision metal stamping machinery enables manufacturers to micro-stamp, making intricate, tiny parts where even the smallest error can render the final product ineffective.
The accuracy and efficiency of precision metal stamping in making these parts creates high demand in industries ranging from automotive to aerospace.
Projects using precision metal stamping often start with computer modeling, which virtually simulates the stamping process to check for errors or defects.
Once testing is complete, the computer will send the design directly to the machine in an efficient process, reducing the chance of human error.
Balford precision hardware parts processing factory has equipment that can produce ultra-precision parts, professional mold customization, 1:1 restoration of drawings, and the processing range of tiny holes reaches ￠0.01-￠0.2mm.
