Stamping

Laser Cutting

  • Low volume process with short lead time and no tooling required. Ideal for a wide range of part sizes.
  • Secondary bending and forming available
  • All metals and most plastics can be cut in thicknesses up to 1/4"

Short Run

  • Low cost tooling for limited production quantities. Multiple tools and forming operations can mimic progressive die.
  • Better cosmetics than laser cutting
  • Can utilize most metals and plastics

Compound Die

  • Low cost tooling process suited for low to high volume applications with less complex geometry
  • Tight tolerance control
  • High production speed
  • Low part pricing
  • Can utilize most metals and plastics

Progressive Die

  • Medium to high volume process suited for parts with multiple diameters and bends
  • Complex parts can be formed in one operation, reducing part cost
  • Tight tolerance control
  • High production speed
  • Can utilize most metals

Hydroforming

  • Low volume deep draw forming process that utilizes soft tooling
  • Low cost tooling
  • Short lead time
  • Capable of forming larger parts with deep draw ratios
  • Can utilize aluminum, steel, and stainless steel

Deep Draw / Eyelet

  • High volume forming process used to produce hollow parts with multiple diameters
  • Side piercing of walls
  • In-die threading of coarse threads
  • Lengths up to 6"
  • Tight tolerance control
  • Can utilize aluminum, brass, copper, steel, and stainless steel

Materials

  • Alloy steel
  • Aluminum
  • Brass
  • Copper
  • Low carbon steel
  • Stainless Steel
