Custom Metal Stamping
Metal stamping is a manufacturing process used to convert flat metal sheets into specific shapes. It is a complex process that can include a number of metal forming techniques: blanking, punching, bending and piercing, to name a few. Metal stamping is a fast and cost-effective solution for this large-quantity manufacturing need. WeLink makes metal stamping for Aviation, Aerospace, Automotive, Construction,Transportation, Home appliances.
WeLink Metal Stamping Solutions
Progressive: These are utilized for high-volume production, and they are generally appropriate for high-speed operations. They offer an economical and efficient method of getting parts into production.
Transfer: This type is also used for high-volume manufacturing. Transfer dies are ideal when the parts are medium to large in size, as well as round in shape and deep-drawn.
Line: Line dies actually come in two types: manually loaded and robotically loaded. They work well for low-volume production, as well as for large parts that cannot be produced efficiently in one press.
Short Run Stamping
Short run metal stamping requires minimal upfront tooling expenses and can be an ideal solution for prototypes or small projects. After the blank is created, WeLink uses a combination of custom tooling components and die inserts to bend, punch or drill the part. The custom forming operations and smaller run size can result in a higher per-piece charge, but the absence of tooling costs can make short run more cost-efficient for many projects, especially those requiring fast turnaround.
