Progressive Metal Stamping
Our capabilities include precision metal stamping. We design and make high tolerance precision progressive dies. These complex stamping dies are used on straight side punch presses. Fourté's New Product Introduction (NPI) and Engineering staff has years of experience in designing, building, and implementing complex progressive dies. We work with you to understand your goals and create your strip layout.
Progressive stamping is a metalworking method that can encompass punching, coining, bending and several other ways of modifying metal raw material, combined with an automatic feeding system.
The feeding system pushes a strip of metal (as it unrolls from a coil) through all of the stations of a progressive stamping die. Each station performs one or more operations until a finished part is made. The final station is a cutoff operation, which separates the finished part from the carrying web. The carrying web, along with metal that is punched away in previous operations, is treated as scrap metal.
