Metal Stamping Processes
Metal stamping machines are used to produce metal component parts in volume. The machines operate custom die sets that are made for the production of custom metal stampings. Through metal stamping processes, parts can be produced to close tolerances and from a great variety of materials.
There are three basic types of precision metal stampings:
Progressive Die Metal Stampings
Progressive die stamping is perhaps the most common metal stamping process. We use a single die that progressively creates your custom part as the metal strip travels through the die. The part is carried by the strip and shaped or formed at numerous stations in the progressive dies. Progressive stampings are typically the most economical type of stamping. Our OBI and Straight Side presses range in size from 2 tons to 60 tons specializing in the fabrication of close tolerance, precision stampings in a wide variety of shapes and metals. These metals range in size from a thickness of .002 to .250 inches, and in width from .060 to 4.00 inches.
Deep Drawn Metal Stampings
We have Waterbury Farrel Cam Eyelet presses and U.S. Baird Transfer presses ranging in size from 5 to 45 tons specializing in the deep drawing of a wide variety of strip metals. Materials include: stainless steel, brass, copper, nickel alloys and other metals to meet customer specifications. Used in deep drawing, our transfer press or eyelet machines fabricate deeply recessed parts with separate stations of punches and dies. Deep drawn parts are metal stampings made from a flat metal strip. Deep drawn or eyeletparts have a depth greater than their width, and are often referred to as cups.
we manufacture stamped parts between 0.05 and 4 mm thickness with either progressive, forming or compound dies, depending on the
material and requirements.
You can choose from a wide variety of metals. A few options are DC01 steel, ferromagnetic Mu-metal or permenorm, stainless steel, beryllium copper, and titanium.
For your surface finishing, you have a variety of options from nickel plating to gold plating. Common heat treating and secondary operations like deburring, blasting, and cleaning are standard.
We design and build our tooling ourselves and employ innovative process technologies for the variable production of stamped and formed parts from steel strip.
In combination with our special tooling technology, we can produce complete families of products for you using basic tools with custom attachments. Depending on your specifications, our manufacturing processes can combine stamping, forming and deep-drawing.

How large a part can your CNC machines accommodate?
We offer cutting edge CNC machining with single cut envelopes up to 84”, 40”, 36”. but that’s not a limit on the size of your
One advantage of partnering with Direct Manufacturing is that we have expertise in breaking up complex designs into multiple components, which we can later assemble.
What are your standard tolerances for CNC machined parts?
Standard tolerances for CNC machined parts are +/- 0.005” or 0.001”/”, whichever is greater. In some circumstances, tighter
tolerances can be achieved depending on part design.
