Progressive die stamping is also called continuous die stamping. It is an advanced and precise metal stamping technology. So, it is commonly used for the mass production of metal-stamped parts. Besides this, the technical challenges of progressive dies are primarily concentrated on the design and production of the die itself. This is because all stamping processes need to be incorporated into the progressive die. Here each stamping process is completed independently within its die cavity, i.e. punching, bending, drawing, and trimming. So, each cavity performs a separate task without interference from other processes. As the feeder machine advances the material, it progressively feeds the coil into the entire die cavity. It helps complete the entire stamping process. This tests the technical and production capabilities of a precision stamping manufacturer. This whole process requires the assistance of experienced die engineers and a team to complete a highly challenging task.

Furthermore, a progressive die functions like an integrated system. According to process sequence requirements, the material (typically less than 2.5mm thick) is sequentially fed into the die cavities. It is usually done by feeder machines. Here, cutting, blanking, bending, punching, trimming, drawing, threading, embossing, coining, and stripping are all carried out in a single pass. They all help complete the entire stamping process at once. Ultimately, the stamped products are manufactured to the required specifications.

Progressive die stamping is a highly efficient production technology. It can deal with the mass production of various complex-shaped stamped parts. Due to its continuous stamping action, the entire production process can be shortened. So, it eventually reduces the production costs.

What is the Progressive Die Stamping?


The Pros and Cons of Using Progressive Die Stamping

Progressive die manufacturing processes are critical tests of a manufacturer’s technical capacity and capability. The initial design and manufacturing costs are high. It takes longer to produce the mold compared to standard molds. Moreover, it benefits from high-efficiency production in the long term. So, it can reduce the overall production cost and cycle of the stamped parts. It also minimizes the risk of quality issues. Thus, progressive dies are suitable for stamping large volumes of complex parts. For small quantities and simpler structures, progressive die stamping is not recommended. Because its focus is more on cost savings. Overall, progressive die stamping provides several production advantages and disadvantages. Here we list some for your reference.

Progressive dies have complex structures. They need high-precision manufacturing. Besides this, they have a lengthy production cycle and lower material usage. So, this process requires more cost.

Furthermore, the progressive die sequentially punches the internal and external shapes of the workpiece. So, each stamping operation introduces positioning errors. So, this makes it difficult to maintain stable and consistent relative positioning.

Disadvantages of Progressive Dies:

Here are some advantages of progressive dies.
1. Faster Production Efficiency
Progressive die stamping is a continuous process of feeding, stamping, bending, and deep drawing. So, it allows the rapid production of stamped parts suitable for mass production.

Step-by-Step Process of Progressive Die Stamping

Progressive die metal stamping is a comprehensive process. It helps integrate multiple processes, i.e. cutting, stamping, flanging, bending, deep drawing, three-dimensional forming, and assembly. It requires feeding coil stock step-by-step into the progressive die cavities. Moreover, it uses feeding equipment. Here’s a brief overview of the entire process:

1. Die Design
The progressive die stamping designs may include the following steps;
Draw Analysis: Here we analyze the structure of product drawings. It may include the complexity, dimensions, materials, tolerance requirements, and quantity of stamped parts.
Material Selection: After that, we select the appropriate metal material according to the material requirements of the stamped parts drawings. These generally are aluminum, carbon steel, galvanized sheet, and copper. We typically choose metal coil stock.
Die Material Selection: Then we select the material for the die. It is based on the material of the stamped products, i.e. die steel, tool steel, etc.
We design the die based on product deformation, stamping processes, and material characteristics.

2. Die Manufacturing
This process usually includes;
Machining Die Parts: We make each part of the die according to design drawings using precision equipment. These equipment are usually CNC lathes, precision grinding machines, and slow wire EDM.
Die Component Assembly: Then we assemble each machined die component.
Die Placement and Testing: So, here we assemble the die. We use a crane to install the upper and lower dies (male and female dies) onto the press. Then we conduct trial stamping tests. Here we adjust it continuously to achieve optimal results. Moreover, we guarantee that each stamping process is completed smoothly.
Installing the Coil Stock: Then we load the selected coil stock onto the press. It helps feed the material automatically.

3. Stamping Process
Progressive stamping starts with the machine. Feeders allow the coil to feed into the progressive die cavities. Here, the material continuously passes through the die cavities. It is then complete the entire stamping process for the parts.

4. Part Separation
Here, we eject the finished stamped parts using an ejector. Then we process them into the final required sizes and shapes.

5. Inspection and Post-Processing
This process may include;
Quality Inspection: It’s a Post-processing of the stamped parts. Here we make sure that part meets the tolerance requirements specified in the drawings, Then we inspect the dimensions, tolerances, and appearance. So, it helps us get the accurate part based on drawing needs.
Deburring: Generally, light burrs are produced during the stamping process. Then they are ground off to guarantee the product is smooth and safe to handle.
Surface Treatment: We perform surface treatment operations. They may include plating, painting, oxidation, or applying a dacromet coating on stamped parts. Thus, it increases their corrosion resistance and aesthetic appeal.

6. Secondary Processing or Assembly
Sometimes we need additional processing like threading, drilling, or milling. So, it may include.
Assembly: If the stamped parts need to be assembled onto other products. We can use assembly operations such as riveting, welding, etc., are performed.
Packaging and Shipping: At the end, the stamped products undergo a final inspection. They are packed in wooden crates, cartons, or pallets and shipped.

Design And Manufacturing of Progressive Stamping Dies

We always make sure to make Precision Stamping Dies. These may include progressive dies and compound dies. Below is a brief introduction to the Progressive Stamping Dies

Structural Principle: It is generally like a single station with multiple stamping processes. It can complete processes like stamping and blanking within the die cavity. However, it cannot perform multiple processes like bending and curling together, So it may require additional molds. Moreover, Compound dies are commonly used for the stamping of simple-designed parts. They work surprisingly well with medium to small-scale production.

Application: Compound parts may include washers and gaskets. Moreover, they perform a single stamping operation for processes like blanking or bending.

Production Efficiency: A single mold station performs multiple stamping actions. Therefore, it works well for small-scale stamping. Its efficiency is lower compared to progressive dies.

The complexity of the Mold: It’s structure is simpler, with only one station for processes, i.e. blanking or bending. This simplicity lowers costs and less time for design and production.

Compound Dies:

Structural Principle: We have many stations. These complete the whole stamping process inside a die cavity. So, these processes are blanking, stamping, bending, shearing, drawing, curling, threading, etc. Generally, they are used for continuous stamping. So, it is suitable for large-scale production. Moreover, they are compatible with automatic punch press processing.

Application: Progressive dies has a wide scope of applications producing large quantities. These products are identical. So, the continuous process is suitable to opt for them. Besides this, these parts are mainly used in industries like connectors, terminals, and plugs.

Production Efficiency: The design of various stations helps us to get the efficient completion of stamping processes. Moreover, it significantly boosts production efficiency.

The complexity of the Mold: Progressive dies with more stations are more complex. They may need precision equipment for manufacturing. On the other hand, the design and production need higher costs and time.
