Common Materials For Stamping

  • Ferrous Metals
    High-strength and cost-efficiency make ferrous metals a viable choice for metal stamping. Carbon steel and stainless steel are two of the most used ferrous metals for stamped component manufacturing.
  • Carbon Steel
    Exceptional malleability and ductility reflect carbon steel’s versatility. As a metal stamped component, carbon steel can be formed into a variety of shapes. It is particularly useful for automotive applications as well as construction purposes. Carbon steel stamping applications include:
    Structural components
    Automotive parts
    Industrial pipes and tubing
  • Stainless Steel
    High-corrosion resistance combined with high-strength make stainless steel ideal for metal stamping. Due to its hygienic properties, stainless steel can be used for cookware, cutlery, as well as hygienic pump components. Common stainless steel metal stamping examples include:
    Food-grade applications
    Pharmaceutical applications
    Aerospace components
    Medical device components
  • Non-Ferrous Metals
    With no iron content, non-ferrous metals provide exceptional malleability making them well-suited for metal stamping applications.
  • Aluminum
    Cost-efficient with lightweight properties and high strength-to-weight ratio make aluminum a preferrable metal option for many industrial metal stamping purposes. As an electrically and thermally conductive material, aluminum is also suitable for solar applications. Examples of stamped aluminum components include:
    Aircraft and aerospace components
    Marine hardware
    Architectural framing
  • Copper
    Non-reactive with thermal conductivity, copper provides the ductility and heat resistance needed for a variety of industrial and consumer metal stamping applications. It is often used for the following stamping applications:
    Medical device components
    HVAC components
    Plumbing pipes and tubing
  • Brass
    As a soft alloy, brass has a smooth surface finish and bright aesthetically pleasing color. With its good corrosion resistance, it is used in the following stamping applications:
    Plumbing applications
    Electrical applications
    Electronic applications
    Automotive hardware
  • Superalloys/Nickel Alloys
    Exotic alloys or superalloys can be used for metal stamping applications. These nickel alloys offer you exceptional strength in harsh conditions. Well-suited for aerospace requirements, it is important to note that superalloys can be difficult to work due to their mechanical properties.
