Metal Stamping House
In stamping metal sheets are placed in a matrix or a press tool which is specially designed cavity that gives the preferred form of sheet metal. Upper part of the matrix is connected to the press slide while the lower component connects to the press bed. Specific component known as the blow pushes the sheet metal through the die thus performing the actual development of the operation. After pressing metal coated with gold palladium nickel or tin to prevent corrosion.
Coverage also increases wear and solderable nature of the product. Sometimes leaves are also pre-coated before the stamping process and then purify the product from excess stamping oils and films. The product is then heat-treated to make it stronger because it is still in soft condition after stamping. The product is then subjected to the process of deburring to remove sharp corners. This is done with chemicals or abrasives. Stampings also includes other processes such as metal-piercing cleaning shaping and drawing on the same machines.
Precision metal stamping is applicable to many industries like computers electronics electrical dental aerospace instrumentation military specs defense telecom and automotives. There are many methods in precision metal stamping for producing stamped prototypes. Blank creation is one such method. Blank creation involves the creation of a flat state of the component. The flat blank sheet is then used to make the parts features. In blank creation there are many processes like nibbling chemical etching water jet cutting wire EDM punch and die.
Stamping presses have specific strength speed and accuracy to give a definite form to the metal. There are two types of metal stamping presses: mechanical and hydraulic. They are available in a wide range of power size stroke length and operating speed.
Stampings are gradually replacing other metal forming processes like casting forging fabrication and processing. One reason for this is the very low cost of metal stamping. Dies for stamping cost less than those used in the forging and casting. In addition the metals used in metal stamping can be harder than those used in other processes resulting in a final product stronger. The cost of secondary processes like cleaning and plating is also significantly reduced.
The addition of these presses helps to expand xlnbs capacity. They will be used for small complex and progressive stampings, secondary and compound stampings, as well as value added tube operations.
xlnb has been a leader in the precision stamping industry for over 25 years, and services the medical, automotive, commercial hardware, electronics, and aerospace industries, among others. By incorporating a vast variety of capabilities, xlnb a one-stop shop for a custom manufactured job.
xlnbs precision metal stamping capabilities include progressive stamping power up to 300-tons and coining up to 600-tons. xlnb has bed sizes up to 108 in length, and has the ability to stamp material from .001 thin, up to .50 thick, and can progressively stamp 300 parts a minute when applicable.
The two largest presses at xlnb are the 300-ton Minster press and 200-ton Bliss press, utilized to perform heavy-gauge stamping operations. Large steel surgical device components, commercial hardware parts, and even train doors are made with ease at xlnb.
At the end of last year, xlnb added four brand new United 28-ton OBI presses to perform secondary stampings and tube operations. xlnb now has 10 presses in the 28-ton to 45-ton range, extending its capability to manufacture almost any complex stamping or tubular component.
In addition there are certain foods that should be done only through a metal stamping: Base weights brackets balance clamps brake flanges conveyer flights bushing seats engine bases flywheel shrouds and friction plates. There are also various types of stamping including: Deep drawn stamping electronic stamping embossing Fourslide medical stamping embossing and short-term progressive stamping. The most commonly used type is a progressive drawing Die where the sheet metal passes through a series of stamps and stamping dies made all at once thereby significantly reducing the time it takes.
