Sheet Metal and Stamping
Metal stamping includes a variety of sheet-metal forming manufacturing processes, such as punching using a machine press or stamping press, blanking, embossing, bending, flanging, and coining. This could be a single operation where every stroke of the press produce the desired form of the sheet metal part, or could occur through a series of stage.
Sheet metal quotes are created from STEP or IGES files. IGES files are required for production and 2D prints may be needed to specify finish, tolerance and any other special requirements.
