What are Stamping Presses?

Stamping Presses are machines that provide force to tooling in order to form material into flat, shallow or deeper-drawn parts via progressive, transfer, line or other types of dies. Ideal for volume production, stamping presses are available in various orientations and force-production methods depending upon the applications. Types of presses, indicating these force-production methods, include mechanical, hydraulic and servo, with all exhibiting unique features and capabilities related to speed, acceleration/deceleration and dwell capability.

What is Hot Stamping?

Hot stamping, or press hardening, developed in the early-1970s, was conceived as a means to replace cold stamping and secondary batch hardening with a forming/quenching process within a single tool. Today, hot stamping finds geat use in automotive applications to form high-strength steels.
