Progressive stamping is a method whereby coil or strip stock raw material is fed between an upper and lower die with multiple stations. With each stroke of the press, the material advances through the die – which has successive operations in each station to form one or more features of the part. A progressive stamping die may have anywhere between 2 and 20 or more stations to form a complete part. While there may be a substantial investment in upfront hard tooling, the labor cost is very small. Depending on the size and tonnage of the mechanical press and size of the part, the die may be able to produce anywhere between 600 and 2,000 stamped parts per hour.
