What are Stamping Dies and How Are They Made?

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Trained technicians, known as diemakers, turn the computer models into real-world, physical stamping dies.
  3. Finally, the dies are placed onto presses and begin stamping your desired components.
