Stamping parts are thin plate hardware, which can be processed by stamping, bending, stretching and other methods. The general definition is that the thickness of the parts is not changed in the process of processing. The corresponding parts are casting parts, forging parts, machined parts and so on, for example, the iron shell on the outside of a car, some cabinets made of stainless steel are stamping parts. Stamping parts are also a kind of automobile repair technology, which repairs the deformed part of the automobile metal shell. For example, if the car body shell is hit, it can be restored to its original condition through sheet metal.
Stamping parts factory in general basic equipment including shearing machine, CNC punch press/laser, plasma, water jet cutting machine, compound machine, bending machine and all kinds of auxiliary equipments such as: uncoiling machine, leveling machine, deburring machine, spot welding machine, etc.
Generally, the three most important steps in a stamping factory are cutting, punching/cutting and folding.
Stamping parts are also sometimes used as sheet metal, In general, some metal sheets are pressed by hand or die to produce plastic deformation, to form a certain shape and size, then more complex parts are then made by welding or a small amount of machinery, like household chimneys, tin stoves, and car casings are made of sheet metal.
Stamping parts processing is called sheet metal processing. For example, the use of plate materials to make chimney, iron bucket, oil tank kettle, ventilation pipe, elbow size, tianyuan area, funnel shape, etc. The main processes are cutting, bending and forming, welding, riveting, etc., which require certain geometric knowledge.
Modern process include: sheet metal filament winding, laser cutting, heavy processing, metal bond, metal drawing, plasma cutting, precision roll forming, welding, sheet metal bending forming, die forging, water jet cutting, precision welding, etc.
