Sheet Metal Stamping Dies
Hard tooling is accomplished through the use of metal dies that are designed to stamp, bend, and form sheet metal. When your parts are ready for high volume production, Tenere’s tooling engineering team will help you choose the right tooling option for your program. We can design and build progressive and stage dies in-house, ensuring every stamp and bend is perfectly placed to form your part as desired.
Progressive and stage dies come with their own benefits depending on your part design. A progressive die is a series of equally spaced stations that each perform a unique feature to form your sheet metal part. Typically, the final station cuts the completed part free from the strip of metal. Stage dies usually work on a single part at a time and is manipulated in and out of the die one at a time, either by hand or by a transfer or robotic process. A stage die can be used after a progressive die to add a specific feature or overcome a technical obstacle.
