Advantages of Progressive Die Stamping for Mass Production

Sinotech    March 5, 2013

When you need to mass produce metal parts using multiple methods, progressive die stamping is the way to go. The process of die stamping, including automotive stamping, involves feeding a strip of metal through the different stations of a stamping die. Each station performs a different operation until the finished product is complete and separated from the carrying web.

The automotive industry uses progressive die stamping to create everything from large-gauge steel parts to micro-miniature parts. Automotive stamping is efficient for quickly creating prototypes, assembling metal items with precision and maintaining quality control.

Additional benefits of progressive die stamping include:

  • Precision with complicated in-press operations.
  • Efficient cycle times of up to 800 parts per minute.
  • The dies are made of tool steel, allowing them to withstand high shock loads, resist abrasive forces and maintain a sharp cutting edge.
  • The ability to stamp several types of materials, including titanium, steel, stainless steel, brass, copper, aluminum and zinc.
  • The die stations can perform actions such as punching, coining, bending, fine blanking and multi- or four-slide stamping.
  • Streamline the manufacturing process.
  • Uniform quality of manufactured parts.
  • Ability to work with materials as thin as 0.0015 inches.
  • The use of advanced technologies like in-die protection systems and video inspections.
