The difficulties of tool fabrication in micro level provide an enormous challenge due to the dimension limitation. Reducing the difficulty and tool cost fabrication should always be considered by determining the simplicity of tool geometry, precision tolerance, and an appropriate material selection. This paper study about the manufacturing of micro-blanking punch-die. The mechanical material removal method was chosen to fabricate punch-die since this is a single piece production and intended for small-scale production of micro parts. The manufacturing process consists of punch-die design and fabrication, tool assembly, and clearance measurement. The stress analysis is also conducted to ensure the strength of the punch-die. A micro-blanking experiment was held to observe the tool performance. The result showed that micro-blanking tool can be manufactured successfully and used well to conduct the micro-blanking experiment.
