Metal Stampings

Metal stampings are three-dimensional parts made from sheet metal that has been progressively formed through the mechanical action of a die forming the metal around a punch. In addition to forming the parts, the stamping process also work hardens the metal, resulting in a finished product that is stronger than the base material. The resulting parts are seamless and can be simple or complex, symmetrical or asymmetrical.

Metal stamping is one of the leading manufacturing industries in theUnited States. In 2007, metal stampings accounted for over $11 billion in business in America alone.

Metal stampings are some of the most commonly used products in the world, though they are often overlooked. They can be found in automobiles, electrical appliances, motors, generators, architecture, door locks, air conditioners, garden hoses, batteries, office furniture, power tools, lawnmowers, plumbing, and much more. Metal stampings have dozens of applications in automobiles alone, and are used in parts ranging from transmissions, brakes, and fuel pumps to power outlets, solenoids, sensors, and airbags.

Metal stampings with a length that is equal to or greater than one-half of their diameter are generally referred to as “deep drawn metal stampings.”
