What is Metal Stamping?

In its most basic form, metal stamping is a manufacturing process combining powerful press machines with high precision tool and die sets that form, punch, bend, draw, or coin raw material in coil or blank form. Metal stamping is an ideal option for anyone needing to make large quantities of parts that are essentially identical. Qualtek specializes in progressive die stamping which allows us to add features to parts in a progression while keeping the parts attached to the strip of raw material until all the desired features are complete. With every stroke of the press the tooling will form/punch/coin the parts until the last progression removes the parts from the strip.

A client came to Qualtek needing to produce an affordable and single-use part for a medical device. To complete the project, the stamping required complicated metal forming and shaping. This was developed and accomplished at Qualtek in a progressive die that utilized advanced CAD features.

After stamping, this part required special finishing. The unique advantage of working with Qualtek is that the client could solve tool and die, stamping, and finishing problems in one location.
