Press or Die – Quality Metal Pressings
Press or Die
One of our customers recently approached us with a casting and asked if we could manufacture a stamped equivalent.
So why change? ….
Cost Effective Metal Pressings
Lower cost per volume, faster production, less scrap material.
Production rates up to 1000 parts per minute on small presses & 60 parts per minute on larger machines.
Press manufacturing can be up to 75% more energy efficient against that of the cast manufacturing process.
With stamping you have the ability to produce a finish part with no 2nd operation or machining required to achieve the required tolerances.
Press tools will last 5,000,000 shots in comparison to cast which will last 100,000 before replacement or maintenance is required.
Although we are tied to an NDA, we took a £32 casting and successfully redesigned to a £7.50 pressed part.
Manufacturing of metal pressings can be up to 75% more efficient than that of casting production.
Press parts can be manufactured in a 10 part to 1 ratio against that of the cast equivalent.
Not always a need for a second operation.
In the past, stamping was considered inferior to casting when it came to forming difficult parts. Today, stamping technology has overcome this limitation in many ways. With intelligent data processing, in-die tooling capabilities, and complex press and tooling, metal stamping operations are well-equipped to produce some of the most intricate, finely-made metal pressings in the industry.
The pressing process is so much more flexible when it comes to design, the finer details, complex shapes and the overall process:
