Compound Die Stamping
Complex parts from a single sheet
Compound die stamping is a metal forming process that is used to create complex parts and components from a single sheet of metal. The process involves using a compound die, which is a type of die set that has multiple cutting and forming operations built into a single tool.
Metal forming with compound die stamping
Compound die stamping cuts and forms metal by activating a press on a sheet of metal. This method is highly efficient and cost-effective as the compound die performs multiple operations simultaneously. The die has multiple stages that perform specific operations such as piercing a hole, trimming excess metal, and shaping the part into its final form.
Compound die stamping is commonly used in the automotive, aerospace, and appliance industries, among others, to produce parts such as brackets, washers, and clips. The process is highly efficient and can produce parts with high accuracy, repeatability, and consistency. Additionally, compound die stamping can reduce production costs and increase production speed compared to other metal forming processes.
