Progressive Die Stamping Services
At Manor Tool and Manufacturing Company, progressive die stamping is more than just one of our many diverse capabilities; it’s one of our specialties. Our progressive die manufacturing capability uniquely highlights our commitment to our customer’s growth and process development, removes the burdens of procurement, and ultimately lowers operating costs.
Progressive die stamping allows us to adapt to the growth and evolution of our customers’ products. An existing part run may utilize our press brakes or turret press for shorter runs, but if the demand for that part increases, those processes at higher volumes may end up being too costly for the customer. Progressive die stamping enables us to provide a seamless transition to high volume runs, with built-in quality control.
What is Progressive Die Stamping?
Progressive die stamping is a metal stamping process that requires several workstations to perform different operations on the same part. The operations do not occur simultaneously. Instead, a part in progress must be carried by a stock strip through each station until the part is completed. Progressive die stamping presents a number of benefits compared to similar processes, such as quick set-up, exceptional production speed, and control over part location throughout the stamping process.
A wide variety of industries rely on progressive die stamping for the production of critical parts and components. Some of these include:
Our progressive die process performs incremental changes to the part as it passes each station and sends the completed part down a product chute for packaging at the end. We use highly advanced stamping presses with capacities from 22–400 tons, achieving tolerances of ±0.0005″. A wide range of materials can be utilized from thicknesses of 0.005″ to 0.500″, such as aluminum, stainless steel, copper, nickel, and brass. The automatic servo material feeders and arbors we utilize can handle material up to 35″ wide for dies up to 96″ in length.
The dies we use are customer-owned and range from simple to complex, with features such as in-process tapping capability or coining. Dies are all designed, maintained, and inventoried in-house. Our engineers develop custom die tooling for our precision metal stamping services using our AutoCAD & Unigraphics software, or MASTERCAM software for CNC machining and wire EDM.
