Basic operating principle of metal stamping machine
The technical definition of a metal stamping machine is that it is a cold forming process that uses extremely high force and/or speed to permanently change the shape of the metal. For sheet metal stamping, the workpiece is sheet metal. However, the metal stamping machine can also be used for metal wires and other metal forms.
The basic operating principle of a metal stamping machine is very simple: you put large tools and molds into the mold, and then quickly apply a few tons of force, and then use them to press the metal object into the desired shape. The metal stamping machine can usually perform several different processes:
Flatten metal. One of the most basic operations of a metal stamping machine is to flatten metal objects. This can be done to smooth the object or make it thinner at a certain point for other purposes.
Forged round metal. This is similar to flattening because it makes the workpiece thinner, but this process is usually used for wires rather than sheet metal. The forging wire narrows one end, so it can be inserted more easily into the opening.
Perforated metal. The tools and molds of the metal stamping machine can not only flatten the metal, but also pierce the entire metal. This will create an opening that can be used to connect multiple workpieces. Instead of punching a small hole in the metal plate, it is better to use the tools and dies of the metal stamping machine to press the sheet metal into a specific shape.
Since stamping processing can handle cold metal parts that have not been forged, they must rely on extreme forces to complete the work, which is why these machines usually have very powerful motors.
