Is it possible to make a heatsink with stamping process??
In fact my supervisor asked me to make a heat-sink for a Down-light.
This down-light heat-sink is already made with aluminum injection process, he wants to obtain the same part but with stamping process(deep draw)!!!!
I told him it's impossible because of the behavior of the sheet-metal (Aluminum 1050a) we will get a ripped part, this is what I think at least because of the formidability limitation of the sheet metal.
Is there anyone had similar experience making part with this process??
by the way I have never worked with stamped parts before.
please I need help, more explanation needed more clarification !!!
Thanks in advance
