Sheet metal stamped parts are lightweight, strong, and can take on complex shapes. The sheet metal stamping process can achieve very high production rates, and low labor costs. So, this process is ideally suited for high-volume production. The sheet metal blanks used in stamping are typically made of low-carbon steel, because of its low cost, good strength and excellent formability.
In applications where lightweight is important, aluminum, or alloys of steel with magnesium and titanium are also used. These lighter-weight materials are typically more expensive and less ductile and harder to form. So, developing tooling to produce defect-free parts using these lightweight materials is challenging. We have the expertise and supply chain to develop and deliver to your complex requirements.
