Common Materials Used for Custom Metal Stamping Processes

Custom metal stamping processes employ a variety of flat-stock metals and alloys which are chosen according to the desired part’s unique specifications and requirements. 

Here are some of the principal materials used in commercial part production: 

Brass Metal Stamping 

Brass is malleable and corrosion-resistant, making it ideal for manufacturing parts that are prone to movement and exposed to corrosive elements. The marine, electronics, medical and aerospace industries use brass parts in valves, terminals and other essential commodities. 

Stainless Steel 

Stainless steel falls into a category of iron-based alloys, best distinguished by its heat and corrosive resistance. Many are familiar with it’s most commonly-known uses in kitchen appliances, but this durable metal is also used in high-demand environments like the construction industry and chemical processing.

Aluminum Metal Stamping 

Aluminum is commonly employed in commercial part production to create parts designed to be lightweight and durable— like in the automotive industry. Its strength, flexibility, malleability and corrosion-resistant structure offers a high strength-to-weight ratio, making it the ideal catalyst for fuel efficiency. 

High Carbon Steel 

High carbon steel can be worked relatively easily without breaking. Once the material is stretched, it will expand back into its original form, making it widely used throughout the automotive, construction and retail industries— you’ll see it on items as simple as the metal tabs on hangers, or as complex as electronic machines used in the medical industry.
