Regaining flatness in stamped parts

December 7, 2004

By:

Of all the geometric tolerances that are difficult to achieve, flatness is one of the hardest. Most stampers probably would much rather try to make a complex-shaped, thin, high-strength steel deep-drawn part than hold a small-tolerance part requiring a tight flatness.Achieving part flatness is a...

High-performance coating helps stamper fight downtime

December 7, 2004

Depending on the severity of the application, some stamping dies require frequent reconditioning or recoating. However, some coating processes are done at such high temperatures that the dies become distorted and unuseable, requiring further regrinding. Omni Mfg. encountered this problem in stamping a heavy-duty hinge. It then discovered FortiPhy UltraEndurance™ from Phygen Inc., which increased the hit count on its dies from 20,000 to 200,000 between recoatings. The coating is applied at a relatively low temperature, so distortion is not a factor.
