Q: What is Fineblanking?

A: Fineblanking is a high precision metal forming process used extensively in the automotive, heavy duty, electronics, medical, lawn and garden, and general industrial industries. This unique process creates parts with very tight dimensional tolerances, excellent flatness, and with very little variation from part-to-part throughout long production runs. These characteristics lead designers and manufacturing engineers to specify fine blanked components for their most critical applications.

Q: How does Fineblanking differ from metal stamping?

A: Fineblanking offers shearing with no fracture zone. This is achieved by compressing the whole part and then an upper and lower punch extract the blank.  This allows the process to hold very tight tolerances, and perhaps eliminate secondary operations.

Q: Are there a minimum number of parts you have to run in the Fineblanking process?

A:  While there is no minimum for number of parts Fineblanked, the more parts run at a time the lower the cost to you.  A typical run is 25,000-100,000 parts per year or more.

Q: How expensive is tooling for Fineblanking?

A: Tooling for Fineblanking depends on the size and complexity of the part.  Please contact us for a quote on the specific part you would like to produce.
