High-Volume Production in Sequence
Progressive metal stamping is a metal forming process used to produce parts or components from coiled strip material. It involves the use of a single tool, or progressive die, which is a series of individual stations or dies arranged in a sequence. Each station performs a specific operation, such as cutting, punching, bending, or shaping, as the strip advances through the tool. The tight tolerances and modulartiy of the dies make progressive stamping the preferred production solution for many high-volume projects.
The progressive die allows for continuous feeding of the metal strip, with each progression performing its designated operation on the material as it progresses through the die. The evolving component's position is controlled with great accuracy on its journey through the tool before it is blanked free from the strip of raw material. The tight tolerances, modularity of the dies, and improved production efficiencies make progressive stamping the preferred production solution for many high-volume projects.
Progressive metal stamping offers a significant advantage through the utilization of multi-out tools, enabling the simultaneous production of multiple parts within a single press stroke. Our extensive experience in progressive tooling design ensures cost-effective high-volume production tailored to your manufacturing requirements. Moreover, progressive metal stamping excels at creating components with intricate contours and complex shapes, surpassing the limitations of other metal forming techniques.
