Plastic stamping process: what it is and how it works

Plastic stamping is a complex process: discover how it works, including the dies and materials used for it, and Idea Stampi solutions for customers.

​​What is plastic stamping?

The plastic stamping process is made by a punch press and dies. The press cut different shapes out of a piece of plastic or other non-metallic materials through the dies and is available in both conventional and high speed options, with varying tonnages depending on the equipment.


Why choose a plastic injection process for your project?

Plastic stamping process can be run through rapid injection stamping, a technology-driven process that leverages production automation. The models are sent directly to the production department where mold milling begins but, in most cases, the molds are made of aluminum and not steel. This allows for faster and more cost-effective tooling than traditional steel molds. The plastic stamping process consists of melting plastic tablets (thermosetting/thermoplastic polymers) that once become sufficiently malleable are injected under pressure into the stamping mold to obtain the final product.
