Sheetmetal Forming

The stamping of parts from sheet metal is a straightforward operation in which the metal is shaped or cut through deformation by shearing, punching, drawing, stretching, bending, coining, etc. Production rates are high and secondary machining is generally not required to produce finished parts within tolerances. This versatile process lends itself to low costs, since complex parts can be made in a few operations at high production rates. Sheet metal has a high strength-to-weight factor, enabling production of parts that are lightweight and strong.
