Progressive forming is a production method where a coil or strip of stock material is fed between an upper punch and lower die. With each stroke of the press, the material advances between these tools with each stroke successive operations in each station form one or more features of the part. A progressive stamping die can have as many stations to form a complete part as necessary. While there may be an investment in upfront hard tooling, the labour cost is very small during production meaning the piece part cost is extremely small per production.
