Stamping and pressing is the process of forming a metal shape by applying a tool or die under high pressure to a metal sheet. It’s a cost effective way of making large numbers of strong products at a consistent quality, but isn’t ideal for very small or intricate parts.
Stamping and pressing is a efficient way of producing simpler metal components or products from sheet metal stock. The die is quicker and easier to create than in die casting or metal injection moulding, reducing costs and speeding production.
Once production is under way, large volumes can be produced quickly and at low cost, and at a consistent quality. However, considerable scrap material is produced – it can be recycled, but it adds to costs.
