Stamping and bending technology is a non-cutting manufacturing process for the manufacture of complex components. With this production method, further forming process steps follow after a stamping process. This is how high-precision stamped and bent parts with special bending geometries are created in an efficient production chain.
Punching and bending in one operation
Stamping and bending technology are combined on high-performance machines to form a fully automated workflow, the stamping and bending technology. Metal stampings are pre-stamped during production using a cutting tool and then formed into stamped and bent parts in further steps. In this way, the entire spectrum of stamped and bent parts can be covered – from simple strip and wire bent parts to more complex follow-on parts.
Further processing steps of the forming technology
In order to produce formed metal parts in any desired shape, other forming techniques are used in addition to stamping and bending.
Integration of welding processes for the permanent connection of several components
Integration of contact soldering for the permanent connection of several components
Integration of rivet connections of several components
Press-in method (pressing in of bolts and nuts)
Connections without the action of thermal processes
Stamping by pressure forming
Thread forming processes (forming and cutting)
Feeding, positioning, screwing and tightening
Several machining processes combined in one overall process
Manufacture of stamped and bent parts with progressive dies
Progressive dies are widely used in the manufacture of technical springs. Progressive composite tools consist of several individual stations and enable a whole range of processing steps to be carried out. The spring steel is formed in several operations up to the finished component. Compared to stamping and bending technology, larger component dimensions and forming operations with higher forming forces are possible.
Manufacture of stamped and bent parts using stamping and bending technology
In contrast to production with progressive dies, the advantage of stamping and bending technology lies in its high flexibility. New possibilities open up: the press technology is located in the entrance to the machine, and further processing can then take place in the machine room. For example, cutting operations or cutting and forming operations can be combined with complex bending operations.
Stamped and bent parts on schedule, high quality and cost-effective
Stamping and bending is particularly suitable for the mass production of technical spring products. With large quantities of stamped and bent parts, this manufacturing process is a very precise and, above all, cost-efficient manufacturing method.
