Niobium is the ideal material for metal stamping because of its ductility, high durability and stability. With 50 years of experience, Standard Die, has mastered the process of shaping Niobium in low temperatures. It’s often used for aerospace applications because it is a very drawable metal that is ductile at room temperature, but strong at high temperatures with a high melting point. It is relatively lightweight, has good corrosion resistance and boasts a unique resistance to radiation damage. Niobium is also a superconductor material.
Metal fabricators and stampers love niobium because it is naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to corrosion. Standard Die has been an industry leader and metal stamping pioneer since 1970, during which time we’ve mastered the use of niobium. It’s currently our most commonly used material. Niobium makes up a large part of the metal supplies that serve industries across the globe.
A wide range of parts requires niobium metal stamping, from lightweight and hypoallergenic items to ultra-strong superconducting magnets. Its most common use, however, is in making mixed metal alloys. When combined with steel, for example, it can make an incredibly strong and high temperature-resistant nuclear reactor. For similar reasons, it’s often a favorite for transportation — from airplanes and space vehicles to skateboards.
Niobium is also Standard Die’s most commonly used material. We’ve mastered the use of niobium from niobium part fabrication to deep drawn products.
Niobium’s unique combination of flexibility and durability make niobium part fabrication highly desired by many industries. Industries that frequently use niobium include:

When Al Menzies Sr. established Standard Die over 50 years ago, his plan was simple: stand out from the competition. As the first metal stamper to the industrial diamond industry, he was unwilling to compromise his values. He made sure integrity, customer service and quality were integrated into every aspect of the business and, as a result, designed and manufactured some of the world’s finest products for the industrial diamond industry.
“To make the purchasing of metal stampings painless.”
By pursuing this mission for more than four decades, we have grown from a start up tool and die operation to a world-class metal stamping company. With more than a billion parts delivered, we have provided precision drawing and stamping services to customers spanning the industrial diamond, automotive, aircraft, electrical and medical industries across the globe.Learn More
