      Hi,

      I work for a stamping plant where we produce large automotive panels and have been tasked with investigating the posibility of us starting to stamp aluminium body panels. I am looking for information regarding this, what to look for when stamping alu., how it behaves when drawn etc. I know it can be very corrosive on tooling and therefore lubrication is very important. Can anyone point me in the right direction, maybe a book I can purchase or a website that could help or perhaps some of you have experience in aluminium stampings?

      Thanks in advance.

      Many controlling factors contribute to the success of an aluminum stamping, and many of those factors are controlled to a great degree by the mechanical properties of the aluminum sheet. Keep these two basic things in mind when you are working with aluminum -- stretch distribution and compression.
