Stamps are made with a variety of machines including CNCs, Electrical Discharging Machining (EDM) and with manual etching machines. We can also use a variety of different tool steels to make sure that they are right what you’re stamping. A2, M2, D2, s7 and H13 are all different types of tool steels and since different materials have different stamping requirements we even had ovens to control the metal for the best results.
Steel stamps can be any size and are usually square or round with engraving. Generally these are done with a press. Much like a roll marking die rolls on the outside of a part, a steel stamp presses down onto the part. But that doesn’t mean it has to be flat! A curved object can be rolled or stamped and we can match the right stamp for your existing machine shop or tool. Just tell us the machine you use and we’ll match the stamp to it!
