Stamping is a manufacturing process that utilizes coiled strip metal that passes through a series of progressive dies, punches and forms to produce a finished part. There are several different production metal stamping machines used in the industry. We specialize in progressive punch presses and multi-slide machines, each with advantages and drawbacks. Punch press machines utilize virtually unlimited tonnage applied to the work for greater forming. Speed of these machines is also a benefit in some cases. Punch presses utilize a progression of dies in one unitized master tool. These tools are costed based on the intricacies of the finished part. The part progresses through the die into stations on a carrier strip and is cut off in the last station of the die. Multi-slide machines utilize coil strip or ribbon metal which passes through a punch press section that blanks out specific features. The part is then separated from the carrier strip and is sent into the forming or slide section of the machine. Form tools are located at right angles to each other, operating off cams in a horizontal or vertical plane and a center forming post. Each of these elements can be tooled to perform specific bending, forming, assembly, or part removal function. Multi-slide tooling tends to be less costly and more versatile than punch press tooling. Part configuration and quantity will determine what type of metal stamping machine is best to produce a finished part.
