High density oxygen plasma-etching was applied to microtexturing onto the diamondlike carbon (DLC) films coated on the die-unit substrates. This mold-die unit with microtextured DLC coating was fixed into a cassette die for computer numerical control (CNC) stamping with the use of precise control both in loading and feeding the sheet materials. In particular, the pulsewise-motion control in stamping was employed to describe the effect of loading and unloading subsequences in the incremental motion on the microtexturing with reference to the normal loading motion. The macroscopic plastic deformation as well as the microscopic metal flow were studied to prove that the pulsewise-motion should be responsible for homogeneous duplication of microcavity patterns into a pure aluminum sheet with high aspect ratio.
