Stamping dies are used in metal stamping machines to quickly cut sheet metal into desired shapes. Although the term sounds grim, stamping dies are a godsend in the sheet metal fabrication process.
How are stamping dies made?
The stamping die manufacturing process is a three-step process:
- CAD — short for computer-aided design — software is used to sketch and draft future stamping die models on the computer. The CAD program produces accurate on-screen representations of the final stamping die.
- Trained technicians, known as diemakers, turn the computer models into real-world, physical stamping dies.
- Finally, the dies are placed onto presses and begin stamping your desired components.
