A stamping die is a tool that cuts and forms sheet metal into a desired shape or profile. The die’s cutting and forming sections typically are made from special types of harden-able steel called tool steel. Most stamping dies are constructed of several basic components such as die plates, shoes, die sets, bushings, heel blocks and plates, screws, and more. The tool and die industry relies on aluminum bronze alloys since they are suitable for sliding parts such as bearings. View our extensive catalog for more product details.
