There are many steps to creating a finished product. Although most people have no idea what goes into the process, anyone in the industry knows it begins with a comprehensive design process. The design phase of your custom sheet metal stamping project is sometimes the most important because it determines the exact end result. This is where you want to invest in a company capable of helping you with the entire process from the design process through to the finished service. We can do this for you.

 

Why Design Matters

 

Investing in a team to handle your design needs minimizes risks and complications later. Custom sheet metal stamping needs to be done very precisely in order for your company to benefit from it. Our team works with you throughout the process including design enhancement to improve your current decision and through concept design to ensure the best solution is presented. In addition to this, we also provide value added engineering to help you to reduce problems related to manufacturing, assembly, and installation while also keeping costs down. We can also handle services such as prototype production to get that first piece ready to go. And, when you have a component you need to be replicated, our reverse engineering services can help to make this process possible. Do not overlook just how comprehensive our design services can be to improve your end result.

 

There are many reasons to work with our team. At the heart of them is our dedication to providing you with outstanding support and service from the start of your project through the completion. If you need design services for custom sheet metal stamping or other services from us, contact us at 800-960-3373 to discuss your project with a team member from Stone City.

Perhaps one of the most often overlooked and forgotten about processes for creating precision formed parts and components is sheet metal stamping. At Stone City Products, we have provided precision stamped parts for industries for over six decades. During this time, we have kept on top of all the technology, and the cutting-edge advances in this highly cost-effective method of producing parts and components.
 
To help our customers understand how sheet metal stamping will address their part and component fabrication requirements, understanding the basic process can be helpful. Keep in mind, our designers and engineers can start working with your in-house design team early in the processes, allowing for efficiency in the design which leads to faster production and lower time to market or new parts and components.
 

Sheet Metal

 
While aluminum is the most common material used in the stamping process, it can be completed with all types of metallic alloys in sheet form. This even includes the superalloys of the Inconel family, which are often used in the aerospace industry and for extreme environment types of systems.
 
Sheet metal, while very durable and strong, can be shaped using extremely high amounts of pressure. Unlike other types of fabrication and forming options, stamping is completed at room temperature, so there is no additional heating or stress relieving needed after the heating process.
 

The Process

 
Using controlled pressure, a ram is used to press down in the sheet metal. A die (creating the outside shape) and a punch (creating the inside shape) creates a blank, or the shape punched through the die.
 
This can be done in a single stage and can create a shape before or after blanking. There is also the option for a progressive blanking press, which shapes the sheet metal through several progressive dies. The final blanking process creates the end shape through the sheet metal stamping and blanking process.
