Stamping and Hot Stamping

With a focus on delivering quality products, Martinrea offers a complete range of high-end stamping machinery. Our state-of-the-art stamping facilities can cater to any required automotive and industrial stamping requirements. In our automotive operations, we have a full range of stamping capabilities in the 100 ton to 3,000 ton range, in multiple locations. Our stamping capabilities span a variety of metals including low strength, HSLA, Dual Phase and coated steels as well as aluminum and tailor-welded product.

Martinrea also has two facilities specializing in hot stamping, a process which stamps the metal while in a heated state, which is then cooled when in the press. The hot stamping process enables the use of higher strength steels for products particularly critical in occupant safety such as pillars, roof rails, door beams and bumpers. The Ultra High Strength Steel (UHSS) used in the hot stamping process is of great benefit to an industry so focused on weight reduction and under constant pressure for increased crashworthiness performance. The high strength-to-weight ratio of the UHSS used in hot stamping enables better crashworthiness performance ratings while often decreasing or maintaining weight neutrality.
