Our customer came to us looking for ideas to hit their target pricing on a stamped Flange. After review with their engineering team, we designed and built this progressive stamping tool with an in-die tapping unit to add a threaded hole during the run. With this tapping unit, Wisconsin Metal Parts eliminated a secondary operation allowing them to save $.25 on their overall part cost. The tapping unit added an additional $12,000 to the die build. With their volumes near 100,000 pieces annually this was a good ROI for our customer and quickly paid for itself.
