When stamping complex parts, it is crucial to select a raw material that meets part specifications and ensures optimal performance.
Material selection involves evaluating:
We stamp a wide range of materials to meet the exact material specifications needed for each unique application.
A variety of materials are used for stamping metal parts. Learn more about the unique applications for each material type by clicking on the links below.
FERROUS METALSMagnetic, contain iron and have limited resistance to corrosion.
NON-FERROUS METALSDo not contain iron, which gives them more corrosion resistance.
PRECIOUS METALSOften used as a plating or coating on stamped parts. Designing a stamping process that conserves metal is critical due to its high cost and at times limited availability.
NOBLE METALS & OTHER MATERIALSKnown for their resistance to oxidation and corrosion.
