  • 3D Visualization and Die Making

    While plastic is replacing steel in many industries because it is cheaper, the automotive industry continues to rely on steel as it looks better and is safer for passengers. When it comes to developing the outer panels of an automobile, appearance is crucial. In automotive metal stamping, avoiding uneven lines, blemishes and weak spots in the steel is an important aspect of the process. This means carefully assessing the design and its workability. If the design is too costly or too complicated it is often sent back to be re-conceptualized....

  • Cars, Cars and More Cars

    One thing that I have never completely understood is why the United States has continued to avoid switching to the metric system. I remember learning both when I was in elementary school, and a few of my teachers even seemed to believe we would make the switch eventually, since pretty much the entire rest of the world did. Well, years later, the switch has still not happened. And, sadly I have mostly forgotten the metric system. It has not really affected me much, but now that I have a foreign...

  • A Stamping Presence Online

    Like every other type of product and service, automotive stamping manufacturers, as well as metal stamping manufacturers in general are learning that to continue to do well they must establish an online presence that exceeds that of their competition. Because most individuals in this modern, technology focused age do most of their shopping online, it makes sense that companies are shifting to online purchases as well. This means that a well thought out and well executed website is the best way to stay on the cutting edge of marketing, as...

  • The Non-Exclusive Automotive Stampings

    If metal stamping had no other industry utilizing its services, it would still thrive with only the automotive industry creating parts through its processes. The manufacturing of cars, trucks and other vehicles that fit in the automotive industry spectrum is in as high demand as it has ever been, and there is no sales slump in the foreseeable future. Automotive stamping is therefore also in no danger, particularly because it not only the massively successful automotive industry that utilizes automotive stamping procedures and machines but a couple other industries too....

  • Metal Stampings: The Presses and the Dies

    Every manufacturing process involves a few major elements, without which it could not function properly or function at all. For the metal stamping procedure, which is one step in the production of products and parts made of metal, the structure of the machine is major, as are the dies that shape the stampings. Every machine needs a structure to hold all the pieces together and allow the movement of power generated from one source to flow through the appropriate parts. Depending on the type of manufacturing machine, whatever tool is...

  • The Speed of the Automotive Industry

    The automotive industry is a market that always thrives, regardless of the economic climate, because consumer vehicles are not only purchased new but also must be maintained and serviced with new parts every couple years. That means that at any given time the automotive stamping suppliers that make automotive parts are mass producing parts and selling them well. The fact that automotive stamping suppliers can get their parts made so quickly and efficiently ensures that automotive manufacturers can get exactly what they need when they need it. A vehicle purchased...

Ensuring Quality in Automotive Stampings

The automobile industry has an ever-expanding global market, and that means more competition among auto-makers. The best way to compete, to lead, and to stay at the forefront of the industry is to produce quality products that speak for themselves. In the last decade quality improvement has become a crucial strategy for gaining and maintaining that competitive advantage. This strategy applies to every aspect of the manufacturing process including automotive stampings, which is a process used to make many car parts, mostly for the body of the vehicle, such as doors, hoods, trunks, and roofs. So how does a company ensure that each of these components are defect free and in tip-top shape?

Newly developed vision systems can assist in this crucial part of the process. The systems are used to inspect parts that have just been stamped for cracks before they are transferred to the next press. The Intelligent Sensing equipment employs quick disconnect mechanisms, which allows for fast tooling changes. These vision systems are designed to check parts for cracks and mis-welded items on challenging surfaces that could otherwise go unnoticed. Having the ability to catch errors at an early stage greatly increases efficiency throughout the manufacturing process and improves overall quality as well.

When it comes to metal stamping, particularly for auto-bodies, the integrity of the parts as well as their outward appearance are vital to a company’s survival and success in this competitive market. New vision technology is making it faster, easier, and cheaper than ever before to ensure quality both of these levels. With an industry that is over one hundred years old and constantly changing and expanding, it is crucial to keep up with technological advances in automobile stamping. As more and more companies utilize new technology, customers continue to receive higher quality products at better values every day.

Automotive Stampings

Automotive stamping is a metal forming process in which flat stock sheet metal or metal coils are precisely shaped into three dimensional automotive parts in a stamping press. Automotive metal stamping presses offer rapid stamping as well as repeatable and programmable dimensions which in turn increases both dimensional control and standardizing accuracy.

A cost-effective process, automotive stamping forms metals such as pre-coated steels, Inconel, brass, bronze, cold rolled steel, copper, stainless steel and aluminum into various automotive parts. Automotive metal stampings is able to form a broad range of automotive parts including fenders, hub caps, trim, engine mounts, connectors, terminal leadframes, pins and oxygen sensors. Additional auto parts include braking, fuel delivery, sunroof systems, seating, powertrain systems, fluid sealing systems, air bag cups and bayonet sockets. Not only beneficial to the automotive industry, automotive stamping is also used in industries such as appliance, hardware, pharmaceutical, HVAC, plumbing and fire prevention.

Automotive stampings are most commonly formed on progressive stamping presses. Progressive stamping is a metal forming process done with large, heavy duty presses that use several dies together on the same piece of sheet metal. A die is a press tool for cutting or forming material in a stamping machine. Progressive die stamping combines the forming and cutting processes for efficiency and economy. In progressive die stamping, multiple dies stamp the sheet metal at the same time. This metal stamping process is used to form automotive components quickly. Transfer presses can also be used to form automotive stampings. Transfer presses are a type of hydraulic press that work by feeding flat metal blanks automatically into the right end of the press. From there, feed bar fingers take the part and move it from die to die. There are two types of transfer motions used in transfer presses; the simplest system uses dual-axis motion. The first axis moves in and out, centering the part in the transfer press; the second axis motion transfers the automotive part from die to die. The second system is the tri-axis motion, which is used for indexing parts between dies in the transfer press. The transfer feeder bars are mechanically driven synchronously with the slide motion, and the feed bar fingers inserted into the transfer feeder bars hold the part during indexing.
