Die Design and Manufacturing – Our in-house tool room has the latest machining technology and a knowledgable staff for building complex tools to produce stamped parts. Our highly-skilled team of engineers debug progressive dies on screen using Siemens NX 3D modeling software and make part design recommendations for manufacturing efficiency and cost savings.
Rapid Prototyping – Before investing in full production, we test design concepts at early phases of part development to perfect part designs and prevent mass production issues. We offer complete recommendations on materials, part designs, tool designs, and the best manufacturing technology. Prototyping saves time and money, and provides an opportunity to make quality parts quickly to ensure the best practices are in place for future production.
Assembly Services – We offer in-die assembly and secondary semi-automated assembly to combine multiple stamped parts and join plastic, metal inserts, or hardware components such as fasteners, screw machine parts, bushings, nuts, and studs to metal stampings.
Waterjet – We offer waterjet services as an alternative manufacturing method that produces quick and cost-effective parts for many applications without the need for tooling design and production. It’s a cold process that uses 60,000 psi abrasive water pressure to cut parts on virtually any material and doesn’t harm the integrity of the part design or the raw material. Waterjet is a great option for prototyping new design concepts or producing short run quantities that don’t require extremely tight tolerances.
