What is metal stamping?
Metal stamping is a manufacturing process designed to mass-produce parts at a rate of thousands, even millions while yielding consistent results and quality. By using a series of dies, sheet metal can be shaped, pierced and bent into everything from car parts to furniture components with speed and efficiency.
What production output can metal stamping handle?
When it comes to metal stamping, the only real limits are your budget. This process can be used for manufacturing limited-run prototypes all the way to millions of identical components. Our facilities currently run more than 60 million stampings per year, with a 98% on-time delivery rate.
Does quality decrease with mass production?
Short answer: No. One of the advantages of metal stamping is that you can produce thousands, even millions of identical products with an extremely small margin for error and imperfections. A well built and maintained tool will bring you consistency in the part run. A solid Quality Program will insure only conforming parts are being shipped. Thanks to our in-house tooling, gage and fixture building service, as well as rigorous inspections and data collection, our volume of output will never be at the expense of quality. Whether you need a few prototypes or millions of parts, you can trust that you will receive the same consistently high quality.
What kinds of metal can be used in stamping?
Metal stamping can be done on a wide range of different metals including aluminum, brass, copper, bronze, carbon, stainless steels and other exotic metals. Wisconsin Metal Parts Inc. is capable of working with most metals and has relationships with a wide variety of material suppliers.
Will metal stamping save me money?
After the initial tooling investment, production stamping is usually your most cost-effective solution for volume part runs. Our tools and presses are equipped with sensors that allow tooling to run minimally attended while still delivering on quality.
