      Hello everybody,
      I will make a complex sheet metal design and some forms should be done with stamping operation. I have no good experience with the sheet metal stamping so I need your help:cool::
      First case:
      - Material: Stainless Steel
      - thickness: 1mm
      what is the maximum of stamping length that I can make before reaching the hardening of the material ?
      Second case:
      - Material: Aluminum
      - thickness: 1mm
      what is the maximum of stamping length that I can make before reaching the hardening of the material?
      Please help:confused:
      Thank you:)

      Can you attach part drawing here? What you mentioning by drawing or bending?

      There are a few details missing before this question can really be answered. I can provide more info/direction if you need. What kind of processes are you looking at?

      The length of the stamp profile depend on the type of material you are stamping (in case of stainless steel it very much depend on if it is austenitic stainless steel, austenitic-ferritic, ferritic, depends on mechanical characteristics of the steel) and the force the stamp machine is able to apply. Basically it's the product of the perimeter of the cut profile and shear strength of the material = the stamping force that gave the limitation.

      Yeah, sorry sword. You don't have nearly enough information for anyone to reply intelligently. In both materials there are tricks you can use to draw them or band them. Drawings would make this possible, especially with tolerances.

      Hi, it is hard to say stamping depth simply, it depends on your desgin and requirement, without rough drawing, we can not give you professional suggestion, so please attach drawings and then you can have exact idea

      General speaking, the maximum of stamping length depend on your part structure, we had ever made a 0.8m stamping component for Auto, so i don't think you have problems with you parts.
