Basic Principles Of Sheet Metal Stamping

Theory of Stamping Process sheet metal cutting operations in a stamping work is a shearing process. As the punch touches the sheet metal and travels downwards, it pushes the material into die opening. The material is subjected to both compressive and tensile stresses. These stresses will be highest at the edges of die and punch and material will stressing beyond its elastic limit and start cracking there. 3 Steps of shearing or fracture in sheet metal cutting operations. Stressing the material beyond its elastic limit. Plastic deformation due to reduction in area fracturing starts in a reduced area. Forces Disposition …
