HOW IT’S DONE

Blanking is the manufacturing process in which a flat shape is created by feeding a coil of sheet metal into a press and die. During the process through the machine, the blank is punched out from a large metal or aluminum sheet.

The process itself requires the use of a blanking punch, die, press, and stock of sheet metal or aluminum. The metal sheet is placed on the blanking die and processed through a cavity where the shaped press releases a high amount of pressure at a high speed to punch out the steel.
