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.
Compared to conventional laser processing machines, the OPTIPLEX Fiber significantly increases the productivity of thin worksheet cutting with impressive accuracy and cuts up to 0.875” in CRS. The laser is designed to process reflective materials with greater thicknesses and at greater speeds than its CO2 counterpart.
