Sheet Metal Stamping Dies

This single volume reference offers engineering‐level information on press‐working sheet metal, die design and die manufacturing. It has proven to be an invaluable resource for practicing die designers, press engineers, tool and die maintenance technicians, students of die design, and advanced apprentice die makers (among others) who seek detailed information on die design and the manufacture of stamping dies.

Sheet Metal Stamping Dies emphasizes the basic theory of sheet metal plastic deformation as an aid in understanding the manufacturing processes and operations that are necessary for successful die design; vital mathematical formulas and calculations needed for various die operations and performance of die design; illustrations which feature complete assembly drawings for each type of die; a complete picture of the knowledge and skills needed for the effective design of dies for sheet metal cutting, forming and deep drawing operations, highlighted with illustrative examples; properties and typical applications of selected tool and die materials for various die components; inclusive information on integral CAD/CAM systems for die making, EDM machining, and wire EDM practice.
