Design for Manufacturing Course Stamping

Design For Manufacturing - DFM Course 8 Part 2: Stamping

on September 30, 2014

Now let's switch gears from Machining and talk about Stamping, which is another metal forming technique. First, we'll cover the overview of the typical parts you might find. Next, we'll speak to the pros and cons for stamping. After, we'll investigate the process and end by covering the common materials that you might use.

Some examples of common stamped parts are brackets, fittings, deep draw containers, or small metal parts. Small metal components are very common to see in our day-to-day lives. The main advantage of stamping is being suitable for high volume production due to the short cycle time and cost effective components. The main disadvantage is that the tooling is expensive.

He worked on a robotic tuna fish, life-size robotic dinosaurs for Disney Imagineering, and robotic baby dolls with Hasbro, before joining iRobot where he was responsible for leading the Roomba team to scale the functional prototype to high-volume production of the first three million units.
