Automatic Hardware Insertion Tooling

One of our Tier 2 automotive supply customers came to us with a part they wanted to run in their stamping department. For this high-volume project to be profitable for them, they felt they needed to insert hardware into the progressive stamping die to produce a complete part, reducing their labor requirement.

Our design team worked with their engineering staff to model a concept and find the insertion unit that would work best for their application. In 12 weeks, Wisconsin Metal Parts built this tool and had it debugged, set up on our full feed line, and running at the targeted run rate in our 200-ton press. In the end, this insertion reduced the part cost by $.42 and we delivered tooling to another happy customer.
