Customized High Precision Progressive Metal Stamping Die Design and Manufacturing

Stamped metal parts usually require more than one operation. The sample high precision progressive blanking tool produces a high volume mounting bracket that pierces holes. It 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 tool. It is made for a high production automated punch press using coil and an air feeder for continuous operation.


This customized high precision progressive blanking tool and die design includes all the necessary features that any progressive stamping tool should have from ease of use, high accuracy and reliable operation. It includes strip feed and guide, stripping, slug separation, and feeder actuation. As an option the progressive tool and die can be used as a manually operated tool without the air feeder using strips instead of coil.

The cutting components are designed to be made of hardened tool steel that ensure long usability. Choosing the right alloy for the application and the proper customized tool and die design of the tool can greatly effect the life of the tool. As a result it can operate trouble free for longer, saving on tool and die repair and maintenance, elimination of downtime and minimization of costs that are associated with the value of the final product.


This high precision progressive blanking tool and die was designed using SolidWorks 3D CAD. Shop drawings, and files generated from the models are made to seamlessly fit into any machine shop or tool and die room's profile.
