Brackets

Stamped Brackets

Brackets, also known as hangers, play a pivotal role in a variety of applications, from buildings and automotive vehicles to electronics and appliances. They serve a variety of purposes, such as supporting loads, providing uplift, protecting against stress, securing parts and tying structural elements together.

Whether you’re designing a system for an automotive application or designing the framing in a building or architectural project, structural integrity is crucial for optimal performance. Subpar stability in an application can lead to problems down the road.

Support your application with high-quality brackets from Wiegel Tool Works. As a top supplier of stamped metal parts and assemblies, we specialize in the manufacture of brackets used in applications across an array of business sectors.

Quality Assurance

At Wiegel Tool Works, quality is our top priority. We conduct a feasibility review on the part to ensure manufacturability at the start of every program. A run-at-rate study is also implemented on the first run to ensure quality before large-scale production. This enables our quality and production management teams to monitor controls closely and make sure jobs run smoothly.  Manufacturing continues once testing checks out, and the first batch of conforming parts is produced.

Our quality management system is comprised of sophisticated quality technology and controls, continuous improvement programs and a superior quality laboratory and management team. Throughout our production plant, we deploy in-line/off-line camera vision systems and sensor technology, in which we design and fabricate unique to every production program. Our vision system technology operates in coordination with our stamping production machinery to thoroughly inspect and identify part features and dimensions with automated camera imaging. This quality control process ensures every part produced with our stamping equipment always yields 100% quality and zero defects.

Strengthen your application with high-quality brackets from Wiegel Tool Works. With a committed team, innovative equipment and superior quality control, we can deliver a reliable product without delay.

Stamping Materials

Metal Stamping Materials

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. The performance and longevity of an application often hinge upon the material selected. A material’s ability to resist extreme temperatures and corrosion, or stand up to stress or heavy loads is vital. Material types we commonly work with for bracket stampings include:

  • Steel
  • Stainless steel
  • Carbon steel
  • Aluminum
  • Galvanized steel
Plating Finishes

Plating Material Finishes

We offer a range of pre- and post-plating options for metal stamping assemblies to allow for corrosion protection, electrical conduction, decorative use, wear resistance, coloring, bonding, and lubricity. You can choose between overall plating, select plating, or spot plating application. Metal stampings can be reel-to-reel plated, barrel plated, rack plated, vibratory plated, or selective-loose-piece plated. Plating material finishes include:

  • Copper
  • Nickel
  • Tin-Lead
  • Tin
  • Palladium
  • Palladium-Nickel
  • Silver
  • Gold
  • Zinc
