Stamping Die Design
Suburban Industrial takes a consultative approach to designing and building quality stamping dies that are tailored to match each customer’s stamping presses.
- Progressive Stamping Dies
- Single Stage Dies
- Compound Dies
- Draw Dies
Beginning with a piece/part print, the Suburban Industrial team establishes die design parameters based upon projected part quantities that will be produced, materials requirements (Suburban can do carbide), and the need for coated sections, inserts, and sensors. President Rick Kovach drives the process and oversees all aspects of die design.
There are a few different factors to consider when designing a die. The first is the material that will be used to create the parts. This can be anything from steel to aluminum, and each has its own advantages and disadvantages.
The second factor is the size of the parts that need to be created. This will determine the size of the die, as well as the type of press that will be needed.
The third factor is the complexity of the design. Simple designs can usually be created with a few basic tools, while more complex designs may require the use of specialized equipment.
Once the die material is specified, and parameters are established, Suburban Industrial builds each die to blueprint specifications using state-of-the-art wire EDM (can cut up to 15” thick) and CNC machining centers. Dowels are wire cut to location. Prior to shipping completed dies, Suburban employs its 13 stamping presses of up to 225 tons for testing and part sampling to ensure quality.
With our years of experience in the stamping industry, you can rest assured that your dies will be built correctly and will perform as expected. Contact us today to learn more about our die construction services.
