Hot stamping is a hot forming method used in sheet metal forming, specifically in production of high-strength steel components for crash-relevant parts in the automotive industry.
The first developments in hot stamping in Sweden by Volvo in Olofström and Norrbottens Järnverks AB in Luleå (Jergeus 2012).
The first announcement for a European patent on hot stamping (SE7315058-3) in Sweden by Carl-Erik Ridderstrale of Plannja HardTech, a division of Plannja AB, which in turn is a subsidiary of Swedish Steel AB (SSAB), for manufacturing farm implements. The motivation is the need for lightweight and strong steel components (Plannja 1973; Keremedjiev 2011).
