What Is Fineblanking Technology?

(fī n. A hybrid metal forming process combining the technologies of stamping and cold extrusion. Triple-action presses combined with specially designed tooling produce parts impossible to make with any other stamping process.

discoverhow it works

See the fineblanking features & benefits below.

Straight-cut Edges

Cleanly sheared and straight-cut edges

This enables fineblanked parts to hold very tight dimensional tolerances throughout the thickness of the part. The straight-cut edges also provide excellent and functional bearing surfaces.


Rolled stock strength:

Fineblanked parts are made with rolled stock, which makes them inherently stronger than powder metal components and cast components. Often this increased strength enables engineers to design smaller, lighter fineblanked components than would be designed for PM or casting.


Excellent flatness:

As a result of the counter pressure applied throughout the blanking cycle, we can achieve excellent flatness. This often eliminates the need for secondary grinding or in a part that needs to be ground reduces the amount of stock that needs to be removed and therefore reduces the grinding cycle time and cost.


Design Freedom:

Multi-station progressive fineblanking tooling can create intricate parts with many features including forms, bends, coining, countersinks, counter bores and more.


It's all in the details:

Small pierced holes relative to material thickness and holes pierced close to edges, which enable fineblanked parts to be more cost effective than fully machined parts and conventionally stamped parts that need secondary machining.


Positional accuracy and repeatability:

As a result of the construction of fineblank tooling; true position tolerances can be held very closely and all parts throughout the life of a tool.

In-house finishing

Precision Resource delivers finished components ready for final assembly, so your human and capital resources can be focused on improving your products. We do this using an impressive array of in-house finishing capabilities that meet our customers’ specific needs:

  • CNC Machining
  • Grinding
  • Fine Grinding
  • Lapping
  • Broaching
  • Plastic over-molding
  • Welding
  • Assembly
  • Deburring
  • Cleaning
  • Forming
  • Honing

State of the art tooling technology

We are continuously working to expand the horizons of traditional tool design. The result is increasing design and utilization of multi-station progressive fineblanking tooling, which creates features that previously could not be produced in the fineblanking press. This provides additional design options and cost savings for our customers. At Precision Resource, we design and build all of our own tooling. Using state of the art CAD/CAM software, we create and detail each aspect of the fineblanking tool and transmit the files to CNC controlled EDM, machining, and grinding equipment.

Research & Development

Research & Development

Innovation is at the forefront of our strategy. By dedicating significant resources to R&D, we continue to push the envelope of feasibility in our technology.

Your Ideas. Our Expertise

Your Ideas. Our Expertise

Every part that is designed has one best method of manufacture – the method that provides all of the functionality required at the lowest total cost and is robust enough to consistently produce the quantities required. At Precision Resource we help you find this best method

Right, On Time

Right, On Time

Our goal is to continually reduce lead times on new tool deliveries. We offer some of the most competitive new tooling lead times in the industry.

Tech Centre

Our Technical Center

Precision Resource has a stand-alone technical center in Cambridge, ON that develops the company’s fineblanking and processing technologies. Working with our production divisions and our customers, the technical center helps to develop part designs and robust production solutions to meet our customers’ requirements in the most cost–effective manner. Their services include design support, prototype production, secondary process development, and limited production.

Additionally, the Technical Center is the centralized fineblanking tool building facility for the company. Here we design and manufacture complex progressive fineblanking tooling that pushes the technology forward and enables Precision Resource to create more and more features in the fineblanking press, limiting the need for secondary finishing operations.
