Stamping is used as a general term to cover all pressworking operations on sheet metal; it is not confined to forming and drawing processes. The stamping of parts from sheet metal is a straightforward operation in which the metal is shaped or cut through deformation by shearing, punching, drawing, stretching, bending, or coining.
