Stamping of the bearing cages ensures a high enough productivity and consistency with the requirements of a large series manufacture. The roughness of stamped surfaces is one of the parameters for assessing the quality of the cages, which in its turn determines the behaviour in service of the bearings. A large number of input factors corresponding to the stamping process exert influence on roughness parameters. An experimental research has been conceived and developed to assess the influence exerted by the thickness of the blank and the clearance between the active elements of the die on the value of the surface roughness parameter Ra. The mathematical processing of experimental results allowed the identification of empirical mathematical models and graphical representations were designed to offer additional information concerning the influence of the two input factors in the stamping process on a quality parameter of the bearing cage.
