The Relationship Between Sheet Metal Processing and Stamping Processing

For those who first encounter sheet metal processing, most people are easily confused with the concept of sheet metal processing and stamping. In most of the sheet metal processing, the stamping process is indispensable. It can be said that there is an inseparable connection between sheet metal processing and stamping. However, although these two processing have many similarities, they still have certain differences. In the following let us introduce their connection and differences.

First of all, let’s distinguish from the concept, sheet metal processing of course refers to the processing of metal plates, which is clearly the use of metal plates to make common things in our daily life, such as round iron drums, meter control boxes, ventilation ducts, garbage bins, etc. These things are mainly made by shearing, bending and fastening the edges, bending and forming, welding and riveting of the plates.

Sheet metal processing refers to the technology of processing uniformly thick plates, including traditional methods and process parameters such as cutting, punching, bending and forming, etc. Sheet metal stamping is fundamentally different from hardware stamping, which mainly involves processing steps such as cutting, punching, folding, welding and sticking, and parts metal plate processing is called sheet metal processing. Hardware stamping is a process of deforming or fracturing stainless steel, iron, aluminum, copper and other plates and dissimilar materials to achieve a certain shape and size by using a punch and a die. Under room temperature, steel/nonferrous metal plates are formed into a specified shape by a press that provides the required pressure for processing.

From the above, it can be seen that stamping is only one of the many processes in sheet metal processing. Clarifying the relationship between these two processing will help workers make fewer mistakes in the actual production and at the same time improve their skills in operation.

For those who have just joined the sheet metal processing industry, they should distinguish the difference between sheet metal processing and punching machine processing in order to help them carry out their work in the future.
