Precision metal stamping allows highly precise parts to be produced quickly and cost-effectively. Lyons excels at medical stampings, where quality is critical, but we are fully equipped to produce metal stampings for the needs of any industry.
We start with a custom design for your project, accounting for even the smallest features and tightest tolerances, and build stamping dies on-site. Flat sheet metal is fed into these dies, where it is cut into your precision metal stampings. Depending on the design, the final shape may be achieved through a single process or through a series of operations.

Precision Metal Stamping Terms To Know
- Blanking: A “blank” is punched out of a metal sheet during the blanking process, often the first step of the metal stamping process. The removed blank is the workpiece and will undergo further cutting, pressing, or forming.
- Coining: Extreme pressure is applied to a part to shape it, reduce its thickness, and/or strengthen it. This process is used to produce precision metal components with fine features and detailed imprints.
- Drawing: The metal stock is pulled, stretched, and compressed into a die’s cavity to form the desired shape and thickness, producing a 3-dimensional part.
- Forming: This term encompasses all processes that form a flat sheet of metal into a 3-dimensional part. Forming operations include beading, bending, coining, embossing, ironing, piercing, and rolling.
- Notching: A blank or part is punched to remove an edge or corner; the removed notch may be of any shape. Notching may be used at the end of a metal tube to provide a closer fit when it is joined to another.
- Piercing The metal stock or formed part is punched to create slots, holes, or other openings. This process is similar to blanking, except in piercing the removed part is scrap.
- Progressive Die Metal Stamping: Typically used for high-volume runs, this process incorporates multiple stations at a single die. Each station performs an operation (e.g., bending, cutting, drawing, piercing, punching, etc.); together, they result in a completed part.
