Stamped Metal Brackets Manufacturing

You will find more types of stamped metal brackets in the market, but what are stamped metal brackets? we need to know its production technique, functions, material, and surface treatment. Following our step, let us deeply understand stamped metal brackets.

Stamped metal brackets are parts used in various industries, including automotive, electronics, household appliances, new energy equipment, etc.
the brackets are precision metal structures, that provide support to other components, reinforce and connect, the brackets are manufactured by stamping process.
Metal stamping is a manufacturing technique, the stamping machine through the mold press shapes metal parts, and the material is metal panels. the stamping machine presses high pressure on the metal, forcing the panel into the mold, the mold shape opens according to drawings, the mold consists of two halves, the male and female mold, create the mold shape by cutting, and bending.

1: Structural Support:

Metal stamping brackets provide important structural support in many industries, they strengthen frames, fixed panels, and protect the system, maintain the system’s stability.

2: Fastening and Connecting:

The metal brackets connect different components, ensuring they are tight together. this is crucial to assemble electronic parts, automotive parts, and mechanical devices.​

3: Reduce vibration:

In the automotive industry, metal stamping brackets reduce vibrations and noise, it ensure the parts remain in place, and prevent the automotive continuing sports bring result wear.

4: Adjustability and Alignment:

Some metal stamping brackets have adjustable functions, the adjustable function is important for special requirements precise alignment, like automotive panels and machinery systems.

5: custom for specific applications:

You can custom metal stamping brackets according to your dimensions, we can custom metal stamping brackets to meet your specific needs for different industries. our engineer designed the drawings, stamping different specific shapes, supporting specific loads, and specific functions in particular environmental conditions, such as high temperatures or corrosive environments.

6: Durability

Metal stamping brackets need surface treatment to protect longevity, such as galvanizing, nickel plating, and nickel plating. the surface treatment not only enhances the appearance, but also protects corrosion, and increases the bracket’s longevity.

There are materials for stamped metal brackets, which material depends on the bracket’s application and performance. here are some common materials used for stamped metal brackets:

SPCC is steel made through a cold-rolling process,the cold rolled steel has follows physical performances, which make ideal material for production of stamped metal brackets.

Cold rolled steel stamped metal brackets physical performance

(1) High strength: the cold-rolling process deformation strengthens, and increases the strength of the material, making cold-rolled steel have higher tensile strength than hot-rolled steel.

(2) Good formability: the cold rolled steel fine grains material is easier to form during the stamping process, can produce complex precision stamping parts.

(3) Surface finish: Cold rolled steel has a very smooth surface, which reduces friction and wear during subsequent processing, and also improves the finished product aesthetic.

(4) Accuracy dimensions: the cold rolling process can control the accuracy of material thickness and size, thereby the cold rolled steel is suitable for precision stamping.

(5)Good weldability: Cold-rolled steel has good weldability, it is suitable for bracket structures that require welding.

(6)Corrosion resistance: its corrosion resistance can be improved through appropriate surface treatments such as galvanizing, painting, etc.

(7) Magnetic permeability: cold rolled steel has good magnetic permeability, suitable for brackets that require electromagnetic compatibility

(8) Recyclability: cold rolled steel is a recyclable material, which reduces environmental impact and lower production costs.

(9)Processability: cold rolled steel can conduct various subsequent processing, such as cutting, drilling, bending, etc., adapt different design and functional requirements.

Copper alloy stamped metal brackets physical performance

(1) High conductivity: Copper alloys have extremely high electrical conductivity, it is one of the great materials’ conductivity in non-noble metal, very suitable for use in electrical and electronic equipment brackets.

(2)High thermal conductivity: The thermal conductivity of copper alloy is also very high, which can transfer heat quickly, it is suitable for bracket designs that require heat dissipation.

(3)Good ductility: Copper alloy has good ductility, it can be stretched into thin plates or pressed into complex shapes, it is suitable for stamping processing.

(4)Corrosion resistance: Copper alloys usually have good corrosion resistance,and can resist erosion by various environmental factors and extend the service life of the bracket.

(5)High strength: copper alloys, such as brass and bronze, have high strength and hardness, it is suitable for withstanding mechanical stress.

(6)Good fatigue resistance: Copper alloy has excellent fatigue resistance, can withstand repeated stress without breaking easily.

(7)Good processability: Copper alloy is easy to process, can process in various processing methods, such as stamping, cutting, and welding.

(8)Aesthetics: Copper alloy has unique color and luster, which can enhance the aesthetics of the product, it is suitable for use in metal brackets.

(9)Recyclability: Copper alloys are recyclable materials, contributing to environmental protection, let sustainable use of resources.

(10) Non-magnetic: Copper alloys are non-magnetic materials, suitable for applications where interference from magnetic fields needs to be avoided.

(11)Good weldability: Copper alloy has good welding properties, can be welded with other metals or its own materials, forms a strong connection.

(12)Low thermal expansion coefficient: Copper alloy has a low thermal expansion coefficient, suitable for use in environments with changing temperatures to maintain dimensional stability.

(13)Antimicrobial properties: copper alloys have antimicrobial properties that inhibit bacterial growth, suitable for medical and hygiene applications.

Brass material stamped metal brackets physical performance

(1) The brass material has good mechanical properties, the brass has high strength and hardness, which make the stamping bracket structure stability, and withstand large loads.

(2) The brass material has excellent processing performance, it is easy to stamp, bend, stretch, and other stamping processes, the brass can produce complex brackets with high precision.

(3) The brass contains tin element can significantly improve corrosion resistance. especially improve resist seawater corrosion. the brass contains tin also called ” naval brass”. the tin can dissolve into the copper based solid solution,and play a solid strengthening role. the tin usually controlled in the range of 0.5% to 1.5%. in addition, add manganese also can improve corrosion resistance.

(4) Brass has good electrical and thermal conductivity. the brass have good electrical and thermal conductivity, mainly because of copper, copper has excellent electrical and thermal conductive material.

(5) Copper high conductivity: copper is the most conductive metal after silver, copper conductivity is very close to silver. copper’s high electrical conductivity allows brass to inherit this property as well.

(6) Copper high thermal conductivity. copper is the best thermal conductivity of all metals, it mean that it can transfer heat quickly. the brass is alloy copper, it naturally has good thermal conductivity.

(7) Alloy effect: brass contains copper and zinc. the zinc can improve brass strength and hardness. but will not significantly reduce its electrical and thermal conductivity.
(8) Electronic structure: The copper electronic structure allows electrons free move efficiently in the crystal lattice, this is electrical and thermal conductivity physical basis.

Due to these performances, brass is widely used in areas that require good electrical and thermal conductivity, such as electrical equipment, electronic components, radiators, heat exchangers, etc.
