Precision Cold Forging Progressive Stamping

Precision Cold Forging Progressive Stamping is a unique manufacturing process, combining the benefits of conventional precision metal stamping with standard cold forging. This technology can effectively integrate many sub-processes such as blanking, drawing, forming, piercing, bending, ironing, upsetting, extrusion and trimming to streamline the creation of complex parts within a single unified design and production approach.

This provides our customers with excellent alternatives to machining, die casting, fine blanking and metal injection molding (MIM) and can reduce lead-times, improve production output and lower costs.

Cold Forging Progressive Stamping Leverages a Blend of Complementary Processes

Since 1997, Interplex has been the industry pioneer and leading innovator in the use of precision cold forging progressive stamping to cost-effectively create complex precision parts for a wide range of industries including automotive, datacom & telecom, printing & imaging, and many others.

Benefits of Precision Cold Forging Progressive Stamping

  • An alternative to conventional manufacturing methods such as machining, sintering, die casting, etc
  • Significant cost savings
  • Enables stable and consistent process for creation of complex 3D precision parts
  • Produces parts that are more rigid with close tolerances, sharper corner edges and better surface flatness
  • Reduces manufacturing lead-time and improves production efficiency

Features Achievable with Precision Cold Forging Progressive Stamping

  • Complex 3D shapes
  • Varying thicknesses
  • Almost 100% clean shear with sharp corners
  • Reduced material thickness after bending
  • Small diameter deep draw (Up to 3 times material thickness)
  • Smooth surface finish
