Next generation fine blank press tooling
Ongoing development of the fine blank process has always been a strength that DC Ross is proud of. Our most recent research and development work has resulted in a higher quality fine blanked product by reduction of die roll and die break on demanding parts with critical working features such as teeth.
The focus of the development work has mainly been on understanding metal flows and punch loadings when the stamping takes place. A good example of this quality enhancement is shown in the attached PDF.
