Metal Stamping Inspection Process
SUPERIOR QUALITY CONTROL EQUIPMENT UNIQUE TO EVERY PROGRAM

Metal Stamping Inspection

At Wiegel Tool Works, quality is guaranteed because inspection is built into everything we do. At the start of every program, we conduct a feasibility review on the part to ensure manufacturability. To secure quality control before large-scale production begins, we implement a run-at-rate study on the first run of a program. This allows our quality and production management teams to closely monitor controls and ensure the job will run smoothly. Once testing checks out and the first batch of perfect parts are produced, the program can continue through the production process.

Before a part even reaches the formal inspection stage, the tolerances across various dimensions are analyzed by numerous sensor and vision technologies. As parts move off the presses, our camera vision systems perform an automated inspection of stamped parts to ensure 100% quality with zero defects. Machine operators are also performing in-process inspection checks during active production.

Our dedicated inspection and quality lab utilizes Optical Gaging Products (OGP) and Keyence vision systems for final auditing and enhanced quality assurance checks.

We are IATF:16949 and ISO:14001 certified and have a dedicated inspection team who utilizes superior quality control equipment. All of our automated quality control equipment including OGP smart scopes, in-line sensors and in-line camera vision systems are pre-programed with part specifications so we can inspect parts quickly, prevent defects, and ensure 100% quality.

We Prioritize customer satisfaction

At Wiegel Tool Works, our utmost priority is customer satisfaction with the quality and integrity of our parts. In-die sensors, press monitoring systems, camera vision systems and a dedicated inspection team ensure parts leaving the production line exceed customer expectations.

PRESS MONITORING

The press monitoring system tracks production OEE and offers real-time data feedback reporting from every press on the shop floor. Data collected is used to drive efficiency and eliminate downtime so raw material is processed through machines quicker, parts are coming off the presses at accelerated speeds and parts are delivered and in the hands of our customers on time. As an advanced quality measure, multiple in-die sensors and in-line camera vision systems inspect critical dimensions of all running parts at high speed and high accuracy to eliminate error and ensure the consistent delivery of quality parts.

Leading Technology

Wiegel Tool Works invests in cutting-edge technology to drive process efficiencies and produce high-quality and cost-effective product. We operate progressive die metal stamping technology from Minster and Bruderer, the leaders in stamping automation technology and equipment. Our enhanced manufacturing equipment is capable of producing with more precision and accuracy and can achieve complex geometries and tighter tolerances. We also have a dedicated automation department that develops in-die sensor technology and camera vision systems used to incorporate quality assurance through all phases of stamping production. With a committed team, innovative equipment and superior quality control, Wiegel Tool Works can provide progressive die high-speed stamping and heavy stamping services that turnaround reliable parts on-time and on-budget.

Building Partnerships

Wiegel Tool Works is known for building partnerships through a “co-engineered” approach to collaboratively address design and manufacturing challenges alongside our customers. Together, with customer engineering and sourcing teams, we are routinely able to co-develop solutions and bring cost saving ideas to complex projects. It is our goal to optimize efficiency on every project by seamlessly bridging the workflow between the customer and Wiegel Tool Works. Decades of experience has proven to us that the most cost-effective manufacturing strategies synergize the best engineering practices at both the customer and at Wiegel Tool Works. We continually strive to be a premier service provider and invaluable resource to each customer by helping to drive efficiencies in all moving parts of a project.
