FAST PIERCE TM METAL STAMPING RESULTS ARE AMAZING
Stamping small holes in thick material is not possible when using conventional stamping systems. These parts were previously drilled and then washed and returned to the line.
The fast pierce stamping process is used to pierce .085" inch holes in .140" thick materials. Fast piercing solved that problem and also allows holes to be much closer together and closer to the material edges.
This high temperature/strength hardened stainless steel part used in a fuel cell could not be made on a conventional press system because of tool life and the precision forming required.
Netronics presses solved the problems because high velocity reduced the forces on the punch with virtually no spring back.
Stamping Titanium can be a difficult task. Our process reduces rollover, increases shear, and gives a superior cut than traditional punch press technology.
These parts are full hard spring steel. Using a conventional press causes the full hard material to crack and fissure. So many facilities stamp parts like these 'soft' and then harden them after. Fast pierce stamping allows hard metals to be stamped and formed directly!
Punching complex multilayer electroluminescent is challenging. This application used to have over 40 operators checking for burr and shorts before our technology solved the problem.
The 90 degree bend on this flash light project was critical because the part needed to be pressed into a plastic casing. If it was out of tolerance, the case and switch were ruined and discarded.
Fast pierce stamping reduced the spring back and provided consistent and predictable results.
Stamping boron steel is virtually impossible using conventional presses due to the tool life. Manufacturers will try and heat the material before stamping in order to process it. It is an expensive operation.
We've been able to stamp these new, hard materials cold!
Many materials are stamped "soft" and then sent for heat treating. Our process often allows us to stamp pre-hardened stock. This saves our customers time and money during production.
This composite material is stamped 24 hours per day and 7 days per week.
This simple packaging application was originally done using conventional presses. The poor edge quality made it dangerous to remove the product from the packaging due to burrs. Fast piercing solved the problem!
These parts , used in a medical artery stitching application, are less than .065" long with a .011" hole in 0.011" titanium. We have no history of these parts being made using conventional presses.
These common parts were made using a conventional press. The time between sharpening was sixty five thousand strokes. Parts were then de-burred, washed and then assembled.
Fast pierce stamping, using almost no lubrication, eliminated washing and de-burring operations. Allowing the manufacturer to go straight from the press to assembly. The time between sharpening increased to over one million parts!
