Metal stamping process is used to create various types of shapes and metal formations. It definitely provides endless options for unique formations and designs. There are different techniques used for metal stamping which entirely depends on the complexity of design required. The metal is placed on a mandrel and then subjected to high speed spinning combined with compression and application of force.

Typically used by architects, artisans for complex designs, metal stamping can be used for achieving different geometrical forms. Experimenting with the amount of heat and pressure will result in different levels of finishing, thickness and texture of the piece.
