WIEGEL TOOL WORKS METAL STAMPING SERVICES FOR THE MILITARY INDUSTRY
PROGRESSIVE DIE HEAVY STAMPING
Wiegel Tool Works is the premier provider of metal stamping services for defense applications. With the latest in progressive die high-speed stamping technology and highly trained personnel, full compliance with ISO requirements, and the flexibility needed to work with military supply chain logistics processes, our 30 to 90-ton Bruderer presses can run up to 1500 strokes per minute. This ensures the ultimate in precision and speed to complete orders up to multimillion part runs across a multitude of industries, including aerospace, appliance, automotive, construction and housing, electronics, electrical equipment, lighting, military, solar, and telecommunications.
PROGRESSIVE DIE HIGH SPEED STAMPING
Wiegel Tool Works produces metal stamped parts reliably and efficiently with high precision progressive die heavy stamping equipment. Operated by highly skilled and experienced professionals, our 100 to 450-ton Minster presses run at up to 140 strokes per minute on conventional presses, up to 250 strokes per minute on servo presses, and up to 400 strokes per minute on hybrid (adjustable stroke) presses.
DIE DESIGN AND MANUFACTURING
Our staff has the knowledge and experience to design and produce sophisticated tools for producing metal stamped components. Using highly specialized Siemens NX 3D modeling software enhanced with our engineers’ own input, our team applies their expertise to both part and tool designs and debugs progressive dies on screen. This means that production errors are greatly reduced while maximizing productivity and cost efficiency.
As part of our commitment to ensuring cost efficiency for our customers, we test each concept early in the development process to perfect the design and select the most appropriate manufacturing technology. This ability to flexibly prototype saves our customers time and money and ensures that we can make the very best parts for our customers and their clients.
With both in-die assembly and secondary semi-automated assembly services, we can join plastic, metal inserts, and a wide variety of hardware components with metal stampings for our defense industry clients.
Waterjet services produce highly cost-effective parts at a rapid production rate without the need for tooling design and production. Using 60,000 psi cold water pressure mixed with granite abrasive, parts can be manufactured quickly from almost any material without altering the integral properties of the design or manufacturing material. This is especially useful when prototyping a new design or for short production runs without the need for tight tolerances.
Wiegel Tool Works leverages the latest technology with highly-skilled manufacturing professionals to ensure highly efficient metal stamping processes with zero defects for our military industry customers.
