Stamping is the process of placing flat sheet metal in either blank or coil form into a stamping press where a tool and die surface forms the sheet metal into a net shape. 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 etc.
● Bending - the sheet metal is deformed or bent along a straight line.
● Flanging - the sheet metal is bent along a curved line.
● Embossing - the sheet metal is stretched into a shallow depression. Used primarily for adding decorative patterns.
● Blanking - a piece is cut out of sheet metal, usually to make a blank for further processing.
● Coining - a pattern is compressed or squeezed into the sheet metal. Traditionally used to make coins.
You could choose aluminum, brass, copper, steel, tin, nickel and titanium etc. For decorative uses, important sheet metals include silver, gold, and platinum etc.
