Top 7 Advantages of Progressive Die Metal Stamping Your Parts

Your designers are working hard on your next stamped part and you need to identify the best process.  Should you use
progressive die stamping, cellular work station stamping, or
deep drawn stamping?

  1. SPEED, SPEED, SPEED! – Progressive die metal stamping is based on the continuous feed of material through the different die stations of a tool.  The nature of the process allows you to create more parts in a shorter period of time when compared with traditional fabrication or machining.  For high volume parts, progressive stamping provides the lowest cycle times per part.
  2. Less Scrap MaterialProgressive stamping is a metalworking method that can encompass punching, coining, bending and several other ways of modifying metal to produce your desired end part shape. The vast majority of material is used, hence, less scrap is produced. Progressive Die Metal Stamping may provide the most cost effective material option for manufacturing your parts.
  3. Quicker Setup – When compared to traditional fabrication or machining, the setup time may be much less for the progressive stamping process. What is achieved in multiple Setups and processes during traditional fabrication and machining, may be performed in one operation if Progressive Die Stamping is utilized. This reduction in Setup and processing will result in a more cost effective piece part.
  4. Create More Geometries with a Single Process – Progressive Die Metal Stamping allows you to create parts with many geometries within a single tool. This video shows a single part progressing through a die. All required geometries of the part are achieved in one Progressive Die operation.
  5. Longer Runs – The continuous material feed used in the progressive die stamping process allows for long runs.   Longer runs between material changes and tooling adjustments mean your parts can be produced in a much shorter time.
  6. High Repeatability – The hard tooling die designs allow for high volume runs without die degradation.  This means that part quality remains high and there are fewer failed parts.
  7. Lower Cost per Part – All of the factors above contribute to reducing the overall cost of your part.  Using progressive die stamping allows you to create robust parts in the most cost effective and expeditious manner.  We look forward to helping you save money on your next project!
