China's Metal Stamping Supplier
Metal stamping or stamping is a type of manufacturing process by which a metal is subjected to a compression load between two molds. Stamping is a cutting process for the production of flat parts from different materials (metal sheet ) with a stamping press or by hitting a cutting tool with a hammer head. In the case of metallic materials, shear cutting is usually used, in which the cutting tool consists of two parts: The base has a recess that corresponds to the shape of the punch used (with a certain tolerance). The contour of the shape to be punched out is thus notched from above and below by the cutting edges of the base and the punch and finally sheared off. The load can be a progressively applied pressure or a percussion, for which both presses and rams are used. The molds are steel dies or dies, one of which slides through a guide (hammer or upper die) and the other is fixed (anvil or lower die).
What is metal stamping? How many metal stamping methods are there?
If the temperature of the material to be deformed is higher than the recrystallization temperature, it is called hot stamping, and if it is lower it is called cold stamping.
Stamping Tool DescriptionA Stamping tool consists of the punch, which represents the inner shape, and the die, which has a suitable opening (example: punch). Depending on the tool structure, the punch can be both the upper and the lower part of the Stamping tool. Depending on the application, the counterpart to the Stamping can also be a flat surface. Then the upper part of the tool consists of a correspondingly shaped, closed Stamping knife (e.g. punch pliers, punch, production of beer mats). The base is made of a softer material than the knives, which are often referred to as the cutting line.
Periodic Stamping of small circular segments in a row to cut out sheet metal parts is known as nibbling. There are hand-operated nibbling machines, nibblers as an electric hand-held device and also CNC-controlled nibbling machines.
In high-performance stamping, processes such as welding, flanging, riveting and forming are integrated into special progressive tools. These sometimes highly complicated tools need to be used effectively and effectively protected.
The waste that arises during stamping is called punched slugs.
When stamping cardboard and corrugated cardboard, the stamping tools contain not only the stamping knives but also creasing lines, so that stamping and creasing (preparation of the folded edges) take place in one operation; In this case, the stamping base is usually provided with creasing arrangements.
CNC StampingWith CNC stamping, the material (sheet metal) moves between the stamping tools. It is captured at the edge and shifted accordingly. The machine selects one of its tools depending on the shape to be punched out (nibblers for complicated shapes, narrow squares for squares of various sizes, round punches for circular disks, special tools for frequently repeated special shapes). This process is used, for example, to manufacture machine housings or control cabinets. The process is used in the production of small and medium-sized series. It competes with laser cutting here; but there are also combined machines.
Hot stampingThis type of stamping is carried out with the material at a higher temperature than the recrystallization temperature, which in the case of iron is 910ºC.
The product obtained has lower roughness (mechanical) and dimensional precision than when working cold, but with the advantage of being able to obtain higher deformations when hot.
Cold stampingCold stamping is carried out with the material at a lower temperature than the recrystallization temperature, so the grain is deformed during the process, obtaining anisotropy in the microscopic structure. It is usually applied to pieces of less thickness than when working hot, usually plates or sheets of uniform thickness.
The main cold stamping operations are:
stamping: stamping (making holes), cutting (separating pieces from a sheet) or coining.
Bending deformation between dies: curved, folded or rolled.
The materials used in cold stamping are ductile and malleable, such as low alloy steel, aluminum alloys (preferably magnesium, without copper), brass, silver and gold.
