Is Die Stamping Outdated? A Legacy Metal Forming Method?

Progressive die stamping and deep-draw hydroforming may be the go-to metal forming process for many manufacturers but are these time-consuming and costly metal forming processes outdated? Do they really achieve the level of precision your products deserve? Do the disadvantages of die stamping outweigh its benefits? Are these processes simply too old-fashioned and impractical for today’s innovators and industry leaders? 

When it comes to precision metal forming, are these legacy metal forming methods ready for retirement? 

Absolutely. 

A Better Metal Forming Solution for Modern Manufacturing: FluidForming

If accuracy and repeatability aren’t your top priorities, then die stamping or progressive die stamping will always be an effective metal forming process, even if they’re well past retirement age. However, as technology and consumer tastes change, precision is increasingly important. Metal forming methods born in the 1800s simply aren’t the best solution for manufacturers producing news goods in the 2020s. 

Why should you settle for less from your metal forming when you could have more? 

If precision matters — and it should — or you’re racing to bring new products to market, die stamping,  isn’t the only game in town. Have you ever stopped to wonder why you’re manufacturing 21st-century goods with a 19th-century manufacturing process?

We did, and that’s precisely why FluidForming Americas was born. 

What is FluidForming? Unlike die stamping, which has been around since the 1800s, and progressive die stamping and hydroforming, both of which saw their last major improvements in the 1950s, FluidForming hydroforming is the first major innovation in metal forming technology in more than half a century.

With forming pressures up to 4,000 bar / 60,000 psi, FluidForming is the most accurate and highly repeatable metal forming and tube forming process available to today’s manufacturers and product innovators. As an added bonus, FluidForming’s bladder-free technology uses water as the forming force.
