Precision Stamping & Forming Processes to Meet Challenges of Ultra-thin Materials
Ultra-thin foil material presents special challenges that go beyond mainstream stamping technologies. As discussed in this new Tech Bulletin, these applications often must be controlled to the millionth of an inch, while taking into account special material characteristics, tooling concerns and consistent process control for high-volume production.
With ultra-thin foil applications, the geometries of tolerances and material-to-die clearances can quickly become exponentially challenging. For example, assuming a cutting clearance of 10 percent, when stamping material with a .001 thickness the punch-to-die cutting clearance would be .0001.
