Production Capabilities

Stamping

Ideal for numerous industries. Our punch press stamps out metal pieces from sheet metal to form the parts to the desired form. We can quickly strategize and implement any prototype we’re tasked with.

  • Medium to long runs (50,000 to 1.5 Million piece EAUs)
  • Width to 42 in. (1,066.8mm)
  • Thickness to .280 in. (7.112mm)
  • 100 to 300 ton Komatsu presses
  • 60 to 200 ton Minster presses
  • 200 ton Amada press
  • 330 ton Servo press
  • 440-ton Clearing – Seyi press
  • 600-ton Brown-Boggs Link Motion press

Laser Forming

The laser forming process is a viable process for cutting, punching, and shaping metallic material. The laser beam is guided across the sheet size up to 60 by 120 inches. The path of the laser depends on the forming result.

  • Precision laser cutting and punching
  • Sheet size up to 60 in. x 120 in. (1,524 x 3,048 mm)
  • Carbon steel to 0.750 in. (19.05 mm) thick
  • Plastic composites to 0.500 in. (12.7 mm)
  • Stainless steel to 0.380 in. (9.65mm)
  • Aluminum to .500 in. (9.5mm)
  • Trumpf 3530 Laser
  • Trumpf Trumatic 600L Laser Press
  • Trumpf L2503E LaserCat

Fourslide / Multi-Slide

Four slide equipment offers a wide range of materials including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and brass. Parts can be produced relatively quickly, and tooling is less expensive.

  • Standard and proprietary designs
  • Wide variety of materials including steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and brass
  • Extrusion cushions include EPDM and Silicone
  • Feed length to 15 in. (381 mm)
  • Width to 3.75 in. (95.25 mm)
  • Thickness to 0.120 in. (3.05 mm)
  • Tapping, chamfering, dovetail in primary operations
