The mechanical production (since c. 1820) of ready-made parts in quantity, complete with their decoration, by the use of hard steel dies cut in reverse to the required pattern. Stamped borders, strapwork, etc., used from the 16th century, were hand-hammered from the back, also using hand-cut dies.
metalworking operation that shears and forms parts using tools and dies
A mark, seal, or impression made using a die. You can either blind stamp which leaves only an impression in the cover material or foil stamp which can be an assortment of colors. The foil is still an impression (running your finger on it you will still feel it), but you are less aware of the impression as you are the color.. Stamping in foil is more expensive than blind stamping because you add the cost of that foil. [Back
The process of extracting a board from its array in a panel with the using of a punch press together with a hardened steel die.
Cutting or embossing a sheet of metal with a punch or a die.
Pressing a patterned die into sheet metal. Stamped pieces can be heated and pressed together to make a double-faced ornament.
A decorative technique in which a die or other tool is used to impress designs or manufacturer's marks onto unfired clay.
A general term to denote all pressworking. In a more specific sense, stamping is used to imprint letters, numerals, and trademarks in sheet metal, machined parts, forgings, and castings.

Process of forming an article by stamping a piece of sheet metal over a form in a press.
a technique for decorating ceramics where forms are pressed into the clay before firing for a decorative effect.
Metal stamping involves forming a piece of metal with a dedicated piece of tooling and stamping the piece through a mechanical press. During the metal stamping operation, the upper die is attached to the ram and the lower die is attached to the stationary bolster. As the press is activated, the ram moves vertically towards the bolster to form the piece of metal over the lower die. Metal stamping presses can perform a diverse range of operations such as blanking, piercing, forming and drawing as well as combinations of these processes.
This process uses conventional or progressive-type hard tools (dies) in punch presses to blank and form sheet metal products. Stamping accommodates higher volume, lower unit cost, and larger tooling investment for products with longer product life cycles.
In book publishing, the stamp is the impression of ornamental type and images (such as a logo or monogram) on the book's binding. The stamping process involves using a die with raised or intaglioed surface to apply ink stamping or metallic-leaf stamping.

A metal fabricating process that can compete with roll forming that presses a metal blank with powerful dies into a predetermined shape (or pattern). Stamping utilizes mechanically or hydraulically powered presses that are fed by continuous strips of metal or individual blanks. The strips or blanks are positioned in the press and shaped between tooling forced into the materials by a powerful stamping action.
Impressing of designs from dies into metal with heavy presses.
Designs created in costume jewelry by using a press and molds. Stampings can be flat and have cutouts or can be embossed with three dimensional relief. Thin sheets of brass are often used for this process and the stamped item is plated and polished, then in some cases epoxied, creating some of the highest quality fashion jewelry. "Best Brand" is the leading manufacturer using this technique.

A term used to refer to various press forming operations in coining, embossing, blanking, and pressing. Forming metals using pressure into the surface of a metal, usually strip or sheet.
General term used to denote all sheet metal press working.
Stamping is a metalworking process by which sheet metal strips are punched using a press tool which is loaded on a machine press or stamping press to form the sheet into a desired shape. This could be a single stage operation where every stroke of the press produce the desired form on the sheet metal part, or could occur through a series of stages.
