Metal Stamping tooling

Metal stamping dies is a process in which a tool, called punch enters into the workpiece and leaves a hole in it by removing the slug from the metal. The hole can be of any size and shape.  Metals that are mostly punched are aluminum, Galvanized Steel, copper, zinc, titanium among others. The tool used for the metal punch tooling can be manual or CNC controlled.

The metal stamping machine consists of two parts named, die and punch. There is the clearance between die and punch so that the punch could not stab the die. The amount of clearance depends on the thickness and hardness of the material to be punched.

Metal punch tooling process

In this process, the flat metal is placed between the die and the punch. The punch enters into the surface of the metal and exerts a force on it. When force overwhelms the tensile strength of the metal, the metal breaks and a hole is created in it. then, the punch is pulled back from the metal. The slag obtained from the hole is removed from the punched part and collected into a container. This slag may be recycled or used for other purposes.

The level of pressure which the punch exerts on the metal depends on the type and thickness of that metal. The rule is to use the punch having pitch not less than two times the thickness of the metal to be punched. The selection of the punching machine is an important decision. The punch having appropriate and quality material should is selected for this purpose. A variety of machines are available ranging from manual punches to hydraulic automatic punching machines.

CNC programs have automated the entire process, so, the whole system is operating on commands. There are specific commands for each shape and for each type of movement. When tooling complete its operation on one coordinate it automatically moves to the next coordinate. This process is extremely quick, therefore, a large quantity of metal can be punched in a short time period.

Advantages of metal stamping tooling are the following:

  • It is a quick process.
  • The scrap obtained from the punching process can be reused or recycled.
  • It creates holes in different shapes and sizes.
  • If the same type of metal punch parts is to be prepared, then punch metal tooling is the most appropriate method.
  • It is sometimes a very cost-effective process for medium and high volume production processes.
  • Metal punch tooling has its applications in many industries including aerospace, construction, and electronics industry for the processing of metal foils and punching of metal profiles into metal sheets.

Conclusion Metal punching is a process in which holes of different sizes and shapes are created in the metals. The punches used for his process can be manual or hydraulic automatic punching machines. CNC has computerized the whole process and all the work can be done with the help of commands given to the computer. Metal punch tooling has its applications in many industries including aerospace, construction, and electronics industry.

Injection Molding

When it comes to dealing with the world of production and manufacturing, some of the hardest choices you are going to make are going to revolve around the services that you plan to contract. In today’s economy, it is virtually easy to produce all of your products in-house. Not only would this need millions of dollars of capital, but it would also be the least cost-effective way to about manufacturing your products. This means that you are going to have to make a judgment on a number of various company’s assets and strengths. When you are dealing with injection plastic, you will want to ensure that you are dealing with a top-class firm that has mastered the producing of injection molding parts.

What types of industries use injection mold? The reality is that you will find injection plastic in almost every type of industry. Household electronics, Cosmetics injection molding, defense, and even computers all have a remarkable need for plastic molding. This means that you are going to want to find a firm that is able of dealing with a diverse roster of customers. When you find a firm that has the capability to serve a number of different customers from different industries, you know that you have a firm that puts the needs of the customers above all else. This may make sense, but you want to know how you can tell that you have found this type of firm.

When it comes to injection molding, the answer is the location. More vitally, the answer is locations. We live in an international economy. This means that we trade with businesses all over the planet. An international economy also means that big businesses have offices in a number of different countries. The ideals of localism are still intact, but localism has come to favor the full global economy and not just businesses in your location. The injection plastic producing process needs a number of different steps, such as injection molding, injection tooling, assembly, and finishing. These steps cannot possibly be done in one location.

The top injection molding service is going to do the work where it needs to be performed. In other words, if it makes the most sense to do the molding in Mexico and the assembly injection molding china, the top firm will make this happen. Likewise, this injection molding company is also going to know that its customers operate by the same international ideals and will be capable to ship the parts anywhere on the planet.

Plastic Injection Moulding Serves Various Industries

Injection moulding is an outstanding industrialized system used to make parts from plastic materials. In order to meet this, the molten plastic is injected into a mold at a high force. It is then injected into the inverse design of the wanted shape to produce the shape in the way it needs to be designed.

This is a technique where dissimilar molded pieces are contrived from thermosetting or thermoplastics plastics. In easy terms, it is a process in which the plastic, softened by heat is hard-pressed from a tube into a comparatively chill aperture, shaped in the type of the object to be produced. It has attained amazing eminence and made an important impact in a big range of industries like automotive, aerospace, toys, consumer products, plumbing, medical, construction, and packaging. This technique is followed in the production of little parts and even in producing the full body of certain equipment.

There are different kinds of molding such as injection blow molding, injection molding, film insert molding, compression molding, gas assist molding, thermoforming, rotational molding, and structural foam molding.

Some of the industries which make use of this method: in recent trends, the emergence of these type of firms are high due to the customers’ demands for the products. Almost all industries make use of molds and some of the industries which make use of it are gas and oil, agricultural, construction, automotive, electrical, medical, food, consumer products, and lots of industries are making huge use of injection molds.

The gas and oil industry functions in powerful surroundings and need supplies that should be resistant and tough to corrosion. The system contains gas compression, gas generation, gas molding, monitoring, and process control.

Medical injection molding
Medical injection molding

Medical injection molding has now become one of the powerful emergent industries in America and other main countries across the sphere. Even if this practice has its applications in all industries, this has to be reviewed more carefully as even the least fault can cause a huge blunder when it comes to this industry.

In this targeted procedure the plastic capsules are heated and melted down in a cylinder and forced into molds to figure the medical tools.

Medical appliances like orthopedic devices, heart pump parts, heartbeat monitors, oxygen and EKG parts and other various parts are produced. FDA approval is a must.

Plant containers, cooling spray jets, berry tray without a divider, berry tray with divider, grape toes, cucumber tote, and assorted berry lugs. Likewise, there are other several items done with this method.

Takes over Sales of Thermal Carbon Black

On January 1, 2003, Degussa AG in Düsseldorf will take over the sales of Thermal Carbon Black N 990 from Degussa Engineered Carbons, L.P. (DEC). This joint venture of the American subsidiary and Engineered Carbons Incorporated was established in April of this year. Thermal Carbon Blacks are used in a wide variety of industries (e.g., fireproof cements, metal industry, plastics industry) and in the rubber industry.

Unlike furnace carbon blacks, Thermal Carbon Black N 990 is produced by thermal decomposition of natural gas in the absence of oxygen. Therefore this carbon black features large primary particles, a low structure and high purity. Thanks to this combination of properties, thermal carbon black is particularly suited for rubber applications that require high elasticity, smooth extrudate surfaces, low electrical conductivity and low gas permeability.

As early as the 1990s, Degussa had the exclusive sales rights to this carbon black, which was sold under the trade name Huber MT N 990 and later ECI MT N 990.

For further information on thermal carbon black, contact the sales department of Degussa AG, Frankfurt, or Degussa’s European distributors.

Vessel Minimum Safety Requirements

Following the company guidelines of Responsible Care, the Business unit Advanced Fillers and Pigments of Degussa AG has enforced some time ago very strict rules regarding the selection of vessels to transport Carbon Black Oil to it ‘s various plants around the globe.

A defined set of minimum safety requirements ensure, that environmental and safety risks can be reduced to a minimum. This is an important fact which needs to be taken into account when talking about competitiveness and prices. Especially at times, when the environment and communities are repeatedly suffering from catastrophic oil pollutions on and off shore caused by unsecure vessels used by doubtful charterers.

In the latest surveillance audit of ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001 the DQS testified an excellent management of Degussa’s procurement and logistics department (FP-CL-RL) emphasizing the vessel selection procedure as one example for the high and convincing standard.

Price increase Rubber Blacks

The Advanced Fillers & Pigments Business Unit of Degussa AG in Düsseldorf has announced a price increase for Tire and MRG Blacks of EUR 30,–/mt, effective May 15, 2003 in Europe.

Further marginal improvements are expected in the forthcoming months in accordance with the development of oil prices.

The Business Unit Advanced Fillers & Pigments of Degussa AG operates 29 plants in 18 countries. The company is the only one manufacturing and supplying carbon blacks (rubber and pigment blacks), performance silicas, and rubber silanes from one single source. As a specialist in surface chemistry and physics, the business unit focuses on the production and application of carbon blacks, performance silicas, matting agents, functional organosilanes, and blue pigments.

Increases Prices for Performance Silicas

Degussa will increase all prices of Performance Silicas by 7,5 percent worldwide in June 2003. Intensive cost management enabled Degussa to keep Performance Silica prices without any increase since 2000. Raw materials, and energy, however, have sustained such price increases over the years that Degussa is not in a position to internally bear those cost any longer and has to pass them on to the market.

Degussa is the world’s leading supplier of Performance Silicas. They are used as active filler or carrier in a variety of different applications, e.g. tires, technical rubber goods, plastics, paper, life science and coatings.
