Kristeel-Shinwa was established in 1973 in technical collaboration with M/s Shinwa Rule Co. of Japan, pioneering the process technology of Photo Chemical Machining in India. Today we are the most preferred supplier of the thin intricate shapes Custom Designed components by Photo Chemical Machining in India.
The blanking process is popularly used to pierce out the pieces of the required shape from the sheet or strips of raw material. The pierced-out pieces from the sheet are called the “Blank”, hence it is termed “Blanking”. It is mostly carried out with tools made of hardened steel or carbide such as tool steel, stainless steel, carbon steel, etc.
The Blanking process is beneficial for producing a huge quantity of identical components. Materials like steel, brass, aluminum, beryllium copper, phosphor bronze are most commonly used for blanking.
Industries like defence, electronics, automobile, engineering, telecom, aeronautics, medical, etc finds broad application in blanking.
Types of Blanking methods
- Compound Die Stamping The compound dies stamp is used to precisely produce complex steel parts. In this process, workers or automated equipment feed a steel strip through the stamping machine, which punches out a blank part. This simple, precise, and fast technique enables firms to produce steel components in bulk.
- Continuous Strip Blanking Continuous strip blanking constantly feeds metal substrates through a machine. This allows punching machines to produce uniform end pieces, with each piece having the same characteristics as those before and after it.
- Progressive Die Stamping Progressive die machines sequentially stamp, trim, and bend workpieces to make the finished parts, which exit the machine in conjoined strips. This method uses coiled strips of thin flat metal as its base material. After performing this task, the machine separates individual parts from the strip, which results in the creation of several identical parts.
- Square Sheared Blanking Square sheared blanking is a fine process that uses specialized clamping tools to produce square-edged and contoured blanks. This process is a great way to create panels, casings, and any other component that requires a uniform square shape.
- Cutoff This process combines metal cutting and metal blanking procedures to create highly specialized blanks. When cutoff blanking, manufacturers blank metal sheets and then cut the metal at the sheets, allowing the production of long, flat pieces.
Besides, Kristeel has facilities like Wire cut, Laser cut, and Etching, for manufacturing of critical sheet metal parts.
Kristeel performs manufacturing of Blanking in almost any material such as:
