The procedure and set-up of the progressive tool
Progressive die-stamping is ideal for the processing and manufacturing of very complex metal parts in high numbers of units. The combination of the processes of cutting, bending, embossing and conversion in several work steps enables us at Kaizhong Vogt to process large quantities of metal coils quickly and if necessary cost-effectively for you.
These aspects, also with regard to the cost-effectiveness of production, lead to a broad spectrum of areas of application. Progressive tools are above all used in large-scale manufacturing industries such as the automobile, electronic or household appliance industry to keep the component costs as low as possible.
Several stations and processes are arranged after each other during progressive die-stamping, which leads to one or more operations on the component per station. The metal strip is wound from one coil at the start, flattened and fed into the progressive tool. The metal is then sequentially processed into the tool itself with a previously determined feed length, i.e. the individual process stages are stipulated.
Work processes take place in the following work stages step by step for example:
The component is transported by the carrier strip from station to station. At the end of the last step, the tool is either separated from the carrier strip or the band is wound up again for another work process.
