Advantages of In-Die Staking for High Quality Custom Stamping in Minneapolis, MN

January 11th, 2017 · 2 Comments

Precision metal stamping is a complex process with many advanced operations at each stage. Each part alone demands its own variations on the process, and to manufacture an original part means establishing an original variation of operations that creates a process virtually unique to the production of that part. As a custom precision metal stamper, Thomas Engineering Company has years of experience in creating new procedures that in turn create new parts. For all your custom stamping needs in Minneapolis, MN, you can count on TEC’s skilled engineers, state-of-the-art stamping equipment, and quality production assurance.

Some of the most crucial aspects of our abilities in custom stamping are our in-die techniques. These range from tooling, staking, tapping, and spot-welding, each of which is just as important as the next in its own right. In-die staking, for example, is necessary for permanently joining two components of a part with a hole-plug connection.

In-die staking—as opposed to a secondary staking procedure—provides a number of benefits for our custom stamping customers.

Accuracy is greatly improved with in-die techniques, including in-die staking. The high level of precision made possible by in-die staking eliminates any slippage in staked connections, deformation left by even minor misalignments during the staking process, and any other errors made by a less than perfect operation.

 Speed is also increased significantly with the abilities of in-die staking. Getting rid of the need for any secondary operations to fully complete staking components streamlines the multiple processes involved in stamping. Reducing the time needed to complete production on any given part also allows for the minimizing of energy and labor used in manufacturing.

Cost is, of course, the standing question. TEC custom stamping is so valued amongst our customers because we are consistently able to provide the same high-quality parts at a faster and cheaper rate than companies who do not use in-die operations. Thanks to procedures like in-die staking, TEC engineers and customers don’t have to sacrifice time and money for the quality of a part.
