Streamline your supply chain and produce reliable stamping assemblies with Wiegel Tool Works, the leading metal stamping and tooling manufacturer who deploys sophisticated production and quality controls.
Wiegel Tool Works (WTW) has partnered with leading OEM and Tier manufacturers for over 77 years to streamline all stamping production processes within one operation and produce metal stampings and assemblies with automated assembly and semi-automated assembly services. Industries we serve include aerospace, appliance, automotive, construction and housing, electronics, electrical equipment, lighting, military, solar and telecommunications, among others.
For high volume production or prototype production, we can build complex progressive tooling that has the capabilities of joining components together in stamping production. Within our in-die assembly process, punch presses simultaneously produce stampings and assemble components to parts in one operation, reducing total production time. Stampings can also be produced in one operation and then placed in a secondary operation to assemble or insert components to stampings. Stamping assemblies can be designed to join multiple stamped parts together, plastic pieces, metal inserts, or insert hardware components such as fasteners, screw machine parts, bushings, nuts, and studs to metal stampings. Assembly processes include threading, staking, tapping, hardware insertion, parallel stamping of different parts, joining, stacking, welding, and riveting.
Our team of highly-skilled engineers provide design assistance, recommendations for material and plating selections, and offer cost savings ideas for part and tool designs using the latest 3D CAD modeling software, Siemens NX. Using the most sophisticated CAD software in the industry, our engineers can design and debug progressive dies and model part production through on-screen simulations prior to actual production, preventing issues and optimizing process efficiencies.
With a fully equipped tool room, we are capable of manufacturing complex progressive tooling for stamping assembly production “in house” instead of seeking assistance from an outside tool and die shop. The close alignment between our tool room and engineering team allows us to make necessary tooling changes and adjustments in real-time.
To ensure the consistent production of quality stamping assemblies and meet stringent customer requirements, multiple in-die sensors and in-line camera vision systems inspect critical dimensions of all running parts at high speed and high accuracy to ensure 100% quality with zero defects.
Part specifications include:
- Minimum Part Length/Width: 0.25 in (6.35 mm)
- Maximum Part Length/Width: 24 in (609.6 mm)
- Part Diameter: 0.25 in (6.35 mm) to 24 in (609.6 mm)
- Part Thickness: .002 in (.051 mm) to .375 in (9 mm)
- Tolerance: +/- .001 in (+/- .025 mm)
Although each metal has its own blend of mechanical, chemical and surface properties, our knowledgeable engineering and production teams have decades of experience and can achieve optimum results from a variety of metals. Our team develops the right tooling techniques to ensure the unique properties of any metal are yielding exactly what our customers require for their metal stampings. Material types we commonly work with include copper, brass, phosphor bronze, beryllium copper, steel, stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminum, galvanized steel, titanium and platinum.
