Assembly

Removing burrs, or rough-edged material through techniques like thermal, mechanical, electrochemical, and manual.

Deburring

Utilizes a high powered wheel to produce extremely fine finishes and outstandingly accurate dimensions.

Grinding

A process used to track parts inventory and reorders whereby items are grouped, packaged, and supplied together as one unit.

Kitting

Reduces the surface chemical reactivity of a metal leaving only the desired surface layer materials.

Outsource Passivation

Covering a material with a thin layer of metal for inhibiting corrosion, reducing friction, hardening, decorative factors, improving weatherability, altering conductivity, etc.

Outsource Plating

Die Types

Blanking

Producing a flat piece of material by cutting the desired shape in one operation. The finished edges of the part produces a uniform appearance as opposed to varying degrees of burnishing from multiple operations. Due to the even compression of the blanking process, the end result is a flat part that may retain a specific level of flatness for additional manufacturing operations.

Form

Takes a blank or piece of material and through one press stroke can create a shape out of the material. At times multiple form dies can be used to make the final production part.

Compound

Feeding a strip of metal through the compound die, which punches out a part in a single stroke. Compound dies can cut complex parts all in one stroke, eliminating the need for multiple dies. By creating parts with one die, we’re able to ensure consistency. Because compound dies can produce your part quickly and effortlessly, you can expect to save money.

Progressive

Feeding a coil of flat, thin metal stock into a stamping machine. Holes are pierced, contours are cut, and bends are made while advancing the part through sequential stations via a narrow carrier ribbon of material. At the end of the line, the part or parts are cut off, producing one or more custom metal stampings per cycle of the machine.
