The process of hot automotive die stamping involves heating metal to temperatures of 900° C or more, forming it and then quenching it, a process that cools the metal quickly.
Automotive Die Stamping Driven by Advanced High-Strength Steels (AHSS)
Throughout the last 25 years, automotive die stamping was a relatively simple process, but with the introduction of AHSS, auto manufacturers found that the traditional automotive die did not work as intended and wasn’t strong enough.
The Evolved Motion Technologies in Automotive Die Stamping
Though automotive die stamping is common, other industries are taking advantage of benefits offered by die stamping to create items like electronic products and medical devices.
Sinotech’s High-Quality Metal Stampings: Progressive Die Stamping, Automotive Stamping & More
Progressive die stamping is a metalworking technique that involves bending, punching, coining and modifying raw metal materials with an automatic feeding system. Metal stamping is a practice humans have used since the discovery of fire to make tools, coins, decorations and jewelry. As technology advanced through history, various industries started to use metal stamping techniques for their own applications. The auto industry, for example, uses automotive stamping to make vehicles and components.

Advantages of Progressive Die Stamping for Mass Production
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:…
