April 27th, 2017 · No Comments

Since 1962, Thomas Engineering Company has strived to take on challenges in metal stamping and successfully navigate and accomplish the manufacturing of parts ranging from incredibly complex to simple, yet tiny. Because we continually push the limits of our abilities in metal stamping, we have maintained our status as an industry leader, supplying high quality precision stamped parts to the automotive, medical, and electronics markets and more. When it comes to your needs in precision metal stamping in Minneapolis, MN, look no further than Thomas Engineering Company.

One of our specialties in precision metal stamping is the design and manufacturing of high-quality electronic components. Not only do these components play an important role in the production of electronic connectors, they also serve their purpose in virtually every other industry today. From automotive to telecommunications industries, the use of electronic components is widespread and crucial, making the production of our high-quality precision stamped components key.

Because electronic components are used in so many versatile situations, we work to manufacture precision stamped components in each of the three main classification categories.

Passive: Passive electronic components are one of the most commonly used parts across industries. These parts don’t transfer energy like their active counterparts and can only use sources of power or circuits to which they are directly connected. While passive electronic components can increase voltage and current of a transmitted energy, they can’t change the amplification. Transformers, resistors, capacitors, and inductors make up the majority of all types of passive electronic components.

Active: Another common classification of electronic components is the active component, which works to transmit electrical power into a circuit. These types of electronic components use a separate energy source and transfer that energy into a circuit. Transistors, certain types of valves, and most diodes are active electronic components that feed energy into connected circuits.

Electromechanical: An important, yet less utilized type of electronic components manufactured with our precision metal stamping services is the electromechanical component. These forms of electronic components use electrical connections and mobile parts to transmit and alter power. The electrical signal moving through an electromechanical part creates the movement in an electronic component and allows the part to alter that signal accordingly.

While electronic components play a significant part in our manufacturing and design processes, we also offer much more when it comes to comprehensive precision metal stamping in Minneapolis, MN. For more information about our services, contact Thomas Engineering Company at (763) 533-1501 today.
