Understanding Metal Stamping and Its Many Uses

Metal stamping is a process which includes the stamping or pressing of sheet metal into different forms. Some of the different types of metal stamping include punching, deep drawing, pressing, embossing, bending, flanging, and coining to name a few. The most common medium for metal stamping is sheet metal but it can be performed on other types of materials such as polystyrene. The process of stamping can produce an specified object repeatedly normally within a few steps which makes stamping economically favorable.

In many cases the initial process of stamping involves a simulation process. A metal working firm can take specs, measurements, and blueprints in order to perform a test run on the product being stamped. Once the test pieces are made, they can be tested for durability. These tests can include the analysis of possible defects such as wrinkling, splits, and thinning. This simulation saves the hiring manufacturing company time and money since the analysis performed produces a minute batch of product for testing.

Because of its versatility, metal stamping can benefit a wide range of industries. The automotive industry uses metal stamping often in order to produce a large amount of parts with minimal man power and resources. The marine industry, medical industry, construction industry, and aerospace technology industry all use metal stamping to manufacture their parts and products.
