As stated by The Fabricator, sheet metal stamping involves progressively squeezing a large block of metal between rollers to achieve the desired thickness. This process, known as the rolling process, allows for the creation of various sheet metal thicknesses. While steel is the most commonly used material in stamping, a wide range of metals, including stainless steel and superalloys, can be cut and formed using special dies.
The selection of the right metal and its mechanical properties are crucial in ensuring successful stamping operations. Understanding the material’s properties helps determine the number of operations required, the necessary tool steel type, press capacity, and other essential die design parameters.
