Importance of High Performance Blanking with Precision Metal Stamping in Minneapolis, MN

July 27th, 2017 · No Comments

With each part we manufacture with our abilities in precision metal stamping, our engineers start with a blanking operation that creates the fundamental base of a finished piece. From the design process to the stamping floor, all of our parts need a high-quality beginning in order to have a high-quality ending. Thomas Engineering Company specializes in creating parts of excellence in form and function. This production requires every stage to show the same quality and excellence. A significant step in the process of comprehensive precision metal stamping in Minneapolis, MN, is blanking and the many standardized operations that go with it.

Blanking is often considered one of the most foundational operations in the process of fabricating most types of metal stamped parts. In the realm of precision stamping, all operations with blanking and tandem stages must be able to provide the highest accuracy and quality for a successful precision-based part to be made.

TEC operations include precision blanking to cut and shear the base form of most parts from sheet metals. Our engineers and blanking dies are equipped to provide a wide range of additional blanking operations.
