We are a manufacturer of custom metal stampings. The diversity of our company comes from a long history of manufacturing quality parts for a wide variety of commercial and military applications.
Our employees are the secret of our success. We cant over-emphasize the importance of our people in manufacturing a quality end product.
Fineblanking is a method of stamping which produces a part that more closely resembles a machined part in appearance and dimensional tolerance. Utilizing a triple action press and compound die construction, in either a single station or progressive die design, stampings which typically would require at least secondary machining operations are blanked with smooth edges (no die break) and accurate net shapes. The ability to contain the material allows for stamping of parts with small holes (relative to material thickness), minimal edge distances and difficult shapes with smaller radii than conventional stamping. The robust nature of the process also allows for coining of material thickness, joggles, upset features such as buttons and will still maintain superior flatness. A wide variety of ferrous and non-ferrous materials can be fineblanked. In general the more ductile the material is, the more applicable to the process it will be, allowing for more intricate shapes and greater thickness to be blanked.
Conventional Stamping: offers a variety of techniques for production of the simplest to the very complex sheet metal parts. With simple shapes and generous tolerances, tooling is inexpensive and can produce hundreds per minute, the most cost effective of all manufacturing processes. As the level of complexity increases and tolerances held tighter, progressive tooling can be designed to perform an assortment of operations within the die.
Multiple shaving can produce straighter and more defined shapes with virtually no die break to very close tolerances. Operations such as lancing, forming, bending, coining and drawing within a progressive die can produce sophisticated parts with amazing accuracy and efficiency. Even tapped holes are possible, eliminating costly secondary operations.
