Basic Applications of Precision Metal Stamping in Minneapolis, MN

February 25th, 2016 · No Comments

One of the advanced techniques in the metal stamping industry today is precision metal stamping, a process that yields mass production of complex parts quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively. By increasing the stamping speed and accuracy of a complex stamping application, a production tool can complete a part needing multiple features in a rapid series of operations. At Thomas Engineering Company, our precision metal stamping in Minneapolis, MN serves to meet the needs of our customers to produce quality, complex parts.

To break down what we do with precision metal stamping, we’ve outlined the basic applications of the precision stamping process.

Intricate Precision Metalwork:

To stamp complex parts or unusual designs, the production process often involves intricate precision progressive tooling. With our in-die tapping, spot welding, staking operations, and our progressive die designs, we are able to produce intricately stamped and formed parts for automotive, electronics, and medical technology markets.

Micro-Precision Stamping:

Techniques used in micro-precision stamping allow us to stamp minute features such as bends, cuts, folds, and other stamping operations. Because we often work with very thin sheet metal, micro-precision stamping works to our advantage in many ways. It reduces costs with efficient tooling, yields results quickly, and allows more flexibility in part design throughout the process.

Prototype Design:

When creating a prototype with our rapid prototyping process, using precision metal stamping abilities often moves the process along quickly and efficiently. Because precision stamping and our computer aided design (CAD) software eliminate the need for dedicated tooling with most parts, we can use these capabilities in the prototype design process and provide our customers with a rapid production of the physical realization of their design.

Our technicians are expertly trained and highly experienced in our aspects of precision metal stamping, from super thin and micro to miniature and medium parts. For more information about Thomas Engineering Company and our precision metal stamping in Minneapolis, MN, contact us at 763-533-1501.
