Stamping

Stamping includes the wide range of metal-forming operations that shear, bend, or reshape metal without creating chips. The press provides the power that transforms the sheet metal. Specially designed dies determine the final product.

These classes will explain all the various aspects of forming sheet metal and coil on the press. The content is for individuals who must understand the processes and equipment of stamping. Content addresses the tooling required, as well as troubleshooting punch and die problems for the experienced user.
