Fine Blanking vs. Conventional Stamping
The precision of fine blanking eliminates the need for lengthy processes and double-handling of parts, saving you time and money.
The fine blanking production process is fully automated and has the
capacity to produce 100 parts per minute with accurate machined like edges.
Fine blanking replaces the need to produce parts by slow and expensive processes such as broaching, forging, sintering or manual machining. In most cases it can also replace the need for secondary machining as all the profiles, holes, edges, semi-pierces, etc are carried out in one process.
Components can be produced by fine blanking from virtually any metal type, up to 10mm in thickness.
From the diagram on the top right, depicting normal standard stamping, we can see that there is considerable distortion on both the component and the material. These distortions are costly.
From the diagram on bottom right depicting fine blanking, we can see that there is no distortion to either the component or the material during or after the process.
The dimensional control of fine blanking procedures at DC Ross will save you time and money, producing consistently accurate parts everytime.
