Progressive Tooling is the widely used by Mingxing to produce a wide range of parts and components. It is a metal stamping operation in which several procedures are performed in a progressive press. The process involves multiple stages in a fixed order to transform a metal strip into desired metal parts. The material is automatically fed from a spool into the press and continues from one stamping position to the next with each press stroke. Each station along the path carries out a certain operation simultaneously as the die descends until the part is complete in progressive tooling. Different steps are integrated within a single die, which allows for progressive tooling solutions in a quick, efficient and cost-effective manner.
How Does Progressive Die Work?
The progressive stamping process takes place in a progressive die, a tool that performs multiple operations in one movement instead of multiple. A progressive stamping die is kept in the die stamping press. With the press moving up, the die moves together with it, allowing feeding of the material. As the press comes down, the die is closed, completing the stamping process. With every press stroke, one whole part gets removed from the press. There is also scrap metal produced, collected in a container with the help of conveyor technology.
The progressive stamping process can be carried out on a transfer press too. These presses transfer product parts using mechanical arms from station to station. But when you are mass-producing components, you should always choose progressive die stamping.
