Flat blanking is the process of stamping out the edge dimensions of a product from a piece of sheet metal or non-metallic material. At Boker’s this can be done in a variety of ways depending on the specific project. Flat blanking with a specific stage tool allows for a part to be passed on to additional machinery (punch press, press brake, etc.) for additional processing (piercing, forming, etc.). A compound stage tool can be used for flat blanking while performing additional operations simultaneously. Another option is using a progressive die tool that allows the products to be created from a strip of material that is fed through multiple stages in an automated fashion.
