Stamping is a forming process performed on sheet metal by a series of stamping stations. The stamping process is used to produce mass quantities of finished products.
The sheet metal is formed into preset shapes in a stamping press. The tool and die is the component of the press that forms parts when the sheet metal is inserted. The shaping of parts is completed by the tool and die component called the punch. The punch pushes the sheet metal through the cavity of the die, creating the shape desired.
Applications of Stamping Process: Wide variety of uses in many different industries requires that produce complex components may benefit from intricate precision metal. Some products routinely fabricated with the help of stamping process:
• Automotive engines
• Aircraft components
• Machine gears
• Complex electronics
• Telecommunication products
