Progressive die stamping for sheet metal fabrication is a complex process. For that reason, you want to design the tooling accurately in order to achieve the quality part you want.
We’ve included several design tips in this chapter to help you along the process.
Many of these factors are interconnected so decisions about each should be made concurrently, which can sometimes lead to trade-offs in your design and outcomes.
Several prototype runs are usually necessary to perfect the design before production.
