Precision Metal Stamping Process
FUERD metal stamping department is comprised of more than 20 presses rated at up to 500 tons.  Our capabilities include continuous strip, coining, and several other precision metal stamping techniques, also with progressive die, compound die, and transfer die stamping from big side stamps to small parts.

The sheet metal mostly consists of aluminum, beryllium copper, brass, and several types of steel. Our manufacturing plant contains a well-equipped tool and dies shop, and quickly produces all tooling in-house.

We manufacture close tolerance parts with complex geometries, intricate detailing, and shape-critical and surface-critical features with our metal stamping capabilities. we are equipped to handle that in-house for deburring, finish machining, or powder coating. We utilize CMMs and other devices for dimensional inspection, and our quality assurance program is ISO9001 certified. Many kinds of filter components, furniture parts, and precision metal stampings for medical equipment, examples of items we produce include sensor elements, thrust washers, and custom shapes.
We offer both sheet metal fabrication and metal stamping all under one roof, as well as we can run cost comparisons to evaluate whether stamping is the most economical route based on aspects such as part design, material, volume requirements, and mold costs. For product development projects, combining our sheet metal fabrication and metal stamping capabilities allows us to produce prototype parts, and easily transition them to small scale parts, then ramp up to large volume running.

What is Precision Metal Stamping?

Precision metal stamping is a specialized manufacturing process used to create high-precision metal parts and components with tight tolerances and complex geometries. It involves the use of a stamping press, customized dies, and various metal materials to produce parts with consistent quality and accuracy. This process is widely used in industries where precision and efficiency are crucial, such as automotive, electronics, aerospace, medical, telecommunications, and more.

Key features and aspects of precision metal stamping include:
  1. Tolerance Control: Precision metal stamping ensures tight tolerance control, meaning the dimensions and specifications of the stamped parts are held to very close and consistent limits. This level of accuracy is vital for parts that require exact fits or precise functionality.

  2. Material Utilization: The stamping process optimizes material usage, as it can produce multiple parts from a single metal sheet or coil. This reduces waste and makes it cost-effective for high-volume production.

  3. High-Volume Production: Precision metal stamping is suitable for large-scale production runs, making it an efficient choice for industries that require a high volume of parts.

  4. Versatility: The process can work with a wide range of metal materials, including stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, and various alloys, allowing for versatility in part designs and applications.

  5. Complex Shapes: Precision metal stamping allows for the creation of complex part geometries that might be challenging or costly to achieve using other manufacturing methods.

  6. Speed and Efficiency: Stamping presses can operate at high speeds, leading to rapid production and reduced cycle times, further contributing to cost savings in large-scale production.

  7. Secondary Operations: After stamping, additional secondary operations such as deburring, cleaning, heat treatment, and surface finishing may be required to meet specific part requirements.

  8. Quality Control: Throughout the process, stringent quality control measures are employed to ensure the final parts meet the required specifications and standards.

Precision metal stamping involves the use of different stamping techniques, such as blanking, piercing, bending, coining, embossing, and deep drawing, depending on the complexity of the part and the desired outcome.

Overall, precision metal stamping is a highly reliable and efficient manufacturing process that plays a critical role in the production of various metal components and parts used in countless products across numerous industries.
