KDM High-Speed Stamping
The high-speed stamping section uses Bruderer presses for stamping various metals, including aluminum, copper alloys, and other unusual metals. It operates about 1500 strokes/ min. The high-speed presses for stamping allow numerous projects’ quick turnaround. The metal parts are stamped while tooling progressions are running at high speed. There are multiple stamping features, including automated bi-metal, in-die assembled, compliant pin, coated, etc.
KDM offers systematic and quality-driven metal stamping support for various market departments using advanced machines. We also own in-house tool rooms that allow our team to form progressive dies for stamping parts production. That ensures the most effective solutions even for the most complicated tooling requirements and part designs.

Yes, we can reach the high speed of stamping.
Our tooling speed is connected with our component structures.
We consider the bending station and strip thicknesses to provide the appropriate speed for stable production.
Yes, KDM both offers 3D and tooling design at the same time.
We control qualities by
- Using SOP per production stamping
- Measuring by inspection of SOP
- SOP packing
- Outgoing quality control by SOP
- Tracking each procedure using reports from raw materials until finished parts
KDM ensures stable quality by
- Purchasing raw materials from the brand supplier
- Surface treatment options take action with a certified supplier
- Supplier control depends on the KDM supplier control process
- Strictly follow internal SOP for production
It would help if you had a machine that produces a high stroke rate. Many stamping machines can achieve up to 1400 to 1500 strokes per minute. Of course, this machine should maintain quality, precision, and repeatability even with high stroke rates.
For high speed stamping, you may consider three main options: four slides, progressive and deep draw.
No – that’s not the case.
With a highly efficient high speed metal stamping setup, which guarantees fast turnaround, running multiple up tooling, you can reduce production costs significantly.
Well, depending on your unique requirements and manufacturing capability, it may include coining, countersinking, embossing, and multiple stamping, to mention a few. There are unlimited possibilities when it comes to high speed metal stamping.
Ye, with a high speed stamping process, you may reduce the lifespan of the tooling system. However, you can reduce the adverse effects with proper configurations and highly efficient machines.
You can still achieve a high level of repeatability and accuracy.
Remember, you can still stamp metal parts with high precision and accuracy.
High speed metal stamping emphasizes mass production or large-scale production.
On the other hand, precision stamping focuses more on accuracy. That is, the ability to stamp thin metals.
Additionally, it emphasizes the degree of tolerance the stamping process can achieve.
Of course, all these may also go hand in hand with having an in-house tooling system. Remember, with in-house tooling, and customization is always easy.
First, since your main focus is on high production – choosing a high speed machine is not an option. For instance, choose a metal stamping machine that can achieve 1400 strokes per minute.
Secondly, go for a sturdy and robust machine, considering the force a machine can attain. For instance, depending on your production needs, you may go for a press force 630kN or 1,250kN.
The technology also plays a pivotal role in high speed stamping machines. These technologies may include longitudinal shaft machines, slide runs on a linear bearing, planetary gear systems, etc.
Lastly, choose a fully automated high speed stamping machine.
