How High-Speed Metal Stamping May Change the Industry

How High-Speed Metal Stamping May Change the Industry

Many aspects about manufacturing remain the same for decades. So many regular processes designed solely to fabricate are rarely altered because change costs money, and so often those in charge don’t levy for deviation because “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”

The evidence of this type of thinking on our industry, however, is usually scant and lacking. In the world of hydroforming, innovation is part of our reality. We have spent many years designing and scheming for the future; we welcome forward-thought and progress.

For instance, take a look at metal stamping and how it has changed. To most untrained people, the process is simply a few lines of work, pushing materials, and stamping forms. It seems simple, though it really isn’t.

A great example of metal stamping innovation comes from a company on the East Coast called Intricate. They have, among other things, perfected the art of high-speed metal stamping.

From this write-up, it proves that with some extra effort and willingness to exceed previous expectations, hydroforming and metal stamping can go very far with a measured amount of success.

Company innovations include manufacturing speeds up to 1,500 strokes per minute, modular and carbide tooling, and multiple-out manufacturing.

With these types of progressions in the metal stamping field, the positives for consumers reaches new heights. By increasing the strokes per minute, Intricate has shown that metal stamping continues to be a viable source of production.

Add to that state-of-the-art machines, and a core group of people who care incredibly about what they do, and you have a recipe for success and a future full of solid enterprise and progression.

Report Says: Metal Stamping to Increase Thanks to Auto Industry

Report Says: Metal Stamping to Increase Thanks to Auto Industry

Metal stamping is a very important process to the manufacturing of automobiles. It plays host and is integral to a broad range of parts and finished goods. It transforms flat sheets of metal into recognizable (and useful) products in cars, SUV’s, and trucks, and will soon be on the increase thanks to supply and demand.

From a write-up on the recent report thanks to Virtual-Strategy Magazine, which takes just a small cross-section out of the gigantic and imposing original analysis:

Growth in the market is influenced largely by the demand for manufactured durable goods… any increase in demand for manufactured durable goods warrants their increased production… the auto industry represents a prominent end-use market with growth supported by the projected rise in demand for automobiles and automobile parts and components…

Benefiting most of all, perhaps, is hydroforming companies like us that make use of aluminum sheets to manufacture light-weight automobile parts that exist in every aspect of the vehicle, as is noted further by the report.

The source report, which can be found here and is titled Metal Stampings, Forgings, and Castings: A Global Strategic Business Report, details the growth of industries impacted by things like the growth of metal stamping, provides a comprehensive review of market trends, categorizes innovation and expansions, and outlines global market activities. Including estimates and projections from every manufacturing country in the world.

Global Industry Analysts, Inc., the publisher and researcher for the report, which was founded in 1987 and publishes over 1500 research reports annually, says that the growth can be measured in dollars, and when it’s all said in done (by the year 2020) that dollar amount could be upwards of US$472.2 billion.

We’re thankful that we can help to play a part in this resurgence of American made products, and are proud that a process that we helped to perfect will help our country and our industry succeed.
