What are the applications of industrial printing?

Industrial stamping or Electrical branding iron is a process that aims to transform various types of metallic materials such as steel, aluminum, brass, copper, and other non-ferrous bronze alloys, into pieces of varied utility and high demand. Especially in areas such as the automotive, architectural, electrical, industrial, among others.

By this, these reusable stencils are produced in huge series, approaching automation day after day. Thanks to recent technological updates, this process includes the management of both high and low temperatures, depending on the type of treatment that needs to be carried out.

Diversity of processes and types of stampings:

When using plates or sheets of the same thickness, the use of cold leads to the material being deformed and a type of stamping with punching and cutting off pieces in sheets is started. That is resulting in large elements, ideal for the sector automotive, for example. On the other hand, hot stamping allows generating a greater roughness in the materials. Therefore, a great malleability to shape them with dimensional precision without the need to exert greater mechanical effort, melting them quickly, ideal for pieces of the urban, architectural, or decor.

Other applications derived from the print:

The transformation and/or deformation of this type of material offer multiple results that stand out for the perfection of their dimensions, deep details, fineness, and cleanliness.

The automotive sectors not only focus on body parts but also include smaller ones such as spark plugs, valves, engine parts, among others.
In areas such as the construction industry, reusable mylar stencils deal with the manufacture of round wire rods (very thick wire), rivets, plates, tools, and even pipes. Moving to the urban sector, knobs, doors, windows, lamps of various types and functionalities, elevator sheets, and much more are made.

Existing possibilities in Stampings:

Betting on the diversity of processes, in Stamping, there are different types of folding: the first of them, called bottom folding or V-folding, is one of the most common since it does not require much pressure. The punch exerts pressure on three points of the sheet – the radius of the punch and the radii of the vertices of the V.

On the other hand, it is also possible to resort to partial or edge folding, which is based on the realization of deformations with a variety of angles. During the bending process, the sheet metal remains in contact with three points, which allows bending or bending a wide variety of angles.
