Progressive sheet metal stamping die
Ball bearing guided high precision progressive tool for high speed automated production
Stamped metal parts usually require more than one operation in one. This progressive sheet metal stamping die produces a high volume mounting bracket that pierces holes, blanks out a shape by cutting the strip into separate parts and finally folds the part into an L shape. At each hit a final product falls off at the end of the sheet metal stamping tool. It is made for a high production automated punch press using coil and an air feeder for continuous operation.
The precision sheet progressive metal stamping blanking press design consists of all the necessary features that any metal stamping tooling should have from ease of use to high accuracy to reliable operation for a long time. It includes strip feed and guide, stripping, slug separation, and feeder actuation. As an option the sheet metal stamping die can be used as a manually operated tool without the air feeder using strips instead of coil.
The metal cutting components are designed to be made of hardened tool steel that ensures long usability. Choosing the right alloy for the application and the proper tool and die design for the metal stamping die can greatly affect the life of the tooling. As a result, it can operate trouble free for longer, saving on maintenance, and reduce or eliminate downtime and minimize costs that are associated with the value of the final product.
This precision progressive blanking tool was designed using SolidWorks. Shop drawings, and files generated from the models seamlessly fit into any machine shop or tool room's profile.
