Metal stamping from ChinaMaterials made by means of metal stamping are fabricated from flat sheets of metal in either blank or coil forms that are placed into a stamping press. A tool and die surface then forms the steel into a shape.

There are many different sheet metal forming methods, such as punch pressing or stamping, blanking, embossing, bending, flanging, and coining. These processes can be fabricated in a single stage or in several successive fabricating stages.

The process of metal stampings is usually performed on cold metal sheets, whereas forging is a hot metal forming process.

Metal Stamping Processes

Various metals have unique qualities that would make each metal the “right” metal for a specific product. It is possible that certain products that are candidates for metal stamping may require the forming and processing of base common metals into rare alloys to yield the best advantage for the product’s use.

Metal stampings are used in a broad range of industries:
