Stamping

 

Stamped metal components are used for connector contacts, springs, latches, shields, and many other items. High volume stamping is usually done in a progressive die mounted in a stamping press, or is accomplished in a multi-slide machine. The stamping operation normally entails unreeling the raw material, feeding the material, stamping, reeling the finished parts, and in-process quality checks. The stamped components may be carried on a strip for subsequent operations, or cut loose out of the die.

 

There are many special operations that can be performed in a stamping process, such as deep drawing, coining, fine edge blanking, and assembly of several components.

APEX experience covers all aspects of the stamping process for a myriad of components and for many materials.
