What are sheet metal blanking and punching?

Both blanking and punching are effective metalworking processes that shape a metal sheet.

Blanking is the process of cutting out a flat piece of metal from a large metal sheet or a coil of metal sheet. It is done with a punch and a die or laser cutter. The cut piece, known as the blank, is the workpiece that can be used later to manufacture final or semi-final products. This process is generally used to manufacture a car's body parts. For example, a fender is cut from a metal sheet and then undergoes a stamping process to form the desired shape.

Punching is a similar process that uses a die and a punch to create workpieces. But Contrary to blanking, it is used to punch holes in the metal sheet. The punched piece is the workpiece that can be used later to manufacture final or semi-final products.

Where is it used?

Blanking and punching are used in various industries, including:

  •   Aerospace: Aircraft's components, such as panels and airframe parts
  •   Automotive: Car's body parts, such as panels, trim, and brackets
  •   Consumer electronics: To cut and trim circuit boards
  •   Construction: To cut and shape metal studs, roofing, and side panels
  •   Consumer products: Cut and trim parts for kitchenware and household appliances
  •   Other products: Beverage cans, signs, and decorative items

How is it fabricated?

Blanking and punching are sheet metal cutting processes that use a punch and a die to form or cut a specific shape out of a metal sheet. The punch, a cutting tool, is pressed into the metal with great force, cutting the metal and leaving a clean, finished edge.

• Blanking: In blanking, the punch is used to cut and trim the metal sheet to obtain the desired shape from the cut-off piece which is the useful part. The rest of the material (the main piece) is scrap.

• Punching: Punching is a similar process to blanking. It uses a die and a punch, but the main difference is that the desired workpiece is the main piece which is the useful part and the cut-off part is scrap which can be circular or of any custom flat shape.

In other words, the desired result is the difference between blanking and punching (workpiece/scrap).

Some parts might require finishing processes such as laser cutting to deburr the edges of the workpiece, painting, or anodizing to modify its appearance and mechanical properties.
