Progressive Die Stamping
Progressive die stamping is a metal forming process in which a metal strip is converted into components during several staged operations. Multiple stations are set up along the production line, and each section performs different manufacturing tasks on the part as it is transported past. The individual pieces are connected to a rock strip and are eventually cut free at the final stage.
Compound die stamping performs a series of individual or compound actions in one stroke instead of over the course of multiple passes. Cuts, bends, and punches are all accomplished almost simultaneously, making it an efficient forming method for flat parts. With only one pass, compound dies provide a cost-efficient way to produce simple parts quickly with high repeatability.
In transfer die stamping, every component is taken through the tooling process as an individual unit. Unlike progressive die stamping where separation occurs in the last step, the part is disconnected from the metal strip in the first operation so that more intricate design elements can be created. Finger-like appendages usher parts through the forming stations where individual actions occur.
Our tooling facility uses a punch press to create parts by placing the raw metal stamping materials between a die form and a hydraulic ram. When the ram is engaged, it punches a hole into the piece and forms the metal into the shape of the fixed, stationary die. In general, a punch press can produce large-scale orders of uniformly shaped components and is more efficient than hand punching.
Aranda Tooling offers both conventional and side punch press styles. Our state-of-the-art tooling facility also employs automated robotic transfer, as well as stage tooling design and implementation to expedite the stamping process. Thanks to our state-of-the-art equipment, we can provide numerous high-quality precision components as quickly and affordably as possible.

Advantages of Metal Stamping
Metal stamping is a cold-forming process that transforms flat metal into a variety of shapes. The manufacturing process offers many advantages, including:
With our innovative technology, we take stamping to the highest degree of precision and complexity. Aranda Tooling uses precision metal stamping processes to create components with tolerances of +/- .001″, and, if your assignment calls for stricter specifications, we can refine the process even further.
Efficiency in production processes leads to cost savings. Our metal stamping services can be conducted quickly, whether we are producing a prototype or a full high-volume production run, resulting in significant cost-efficiency over other tooling methods.
Consistency is also critical when it comes to manufacturing parts. Our ability to stamp multiple parts concurrently allows us to accelerate the process and create uniformity. To ensure our stamped components are as consistent as possible, we perform automated inspections on every run, including a dimensional inspection. Our facility is ISO 9001:2015-registered and provides unparalleled metal stamping and tooling service.
Every high-quality precision metal stamping process begins with quality tooling design. Aranda Tooling Inc. works with the latest versions of 3D CAD software including AutoCAD, SolidWorks, and CATIA to ensure all products are designed as per our client’s specifications.
Our tools are built to exact standards – guaranteeing accurate and repeatable results on each production run. Through the use of modern and advanced technologies, our team achieves and maintains tolerances within 0.005 inches, with even tighter tolerances available upon request. Our qualified and hands-on engineering team oversees the rapid development of fully functional prototypes for accurate evaluation and validation of new designs to ensure the functionality and accuracy of the final stamped product.
At Aranda Tooling, we invest the time and effort in planning our processes throughout each phase of operation to eliminate manufacturing errors and maintain compliance with the strictest industry standards and regulations. A product doesn’t leave our facility without going through our rigorous and exhaustive ISO 9001:2015 and APQP certified quality control and quality assurance procedures.
All parts and components are subjected to detailed dimensional checks using our state-of-the-art coordinate measuring machines (CMM), Optical Inspection Systems, ROMER arms, or other inspection equipment operated by our knowledgeable and experienced staff. Further manual and visual inspections are performed to corroborate the findings of all digital instrumentation. Material quality is also assured and verified using strict Production Part Approval Process (PPAP) approval processes.
