Metal stamping of parts and components, such as specialty nut clips, anti-rotation (self-wrenching nut or bolt) devices, door/hood strikers, and deck lid strikers, is our core business. We can be your technical partner in developing new parts and facilitate their quick launch into the market.

Both single stage and multi-stage progressive die stamping can be accommodated in our machine shop fitted with presses to handle sizes ranging from 35 tons to over 300 tons. Depending on your high/low volume production requirement, dies are designed for the appropriate longevity. Before designing a part, we analyze the existing configuration design, strength requirements, fastener alignment, ASM costs, and DFMA standard compliance. For instance, if the original design had used excessive parts and nuts that are difficult to hold with backing wrenches, we could suggest a suitable self-aligning bolt, to replace the multiple fasteners, according to DFMA standards. Made to precise specifications, our stamped metal parts increase assembly efficiency, joint consistency, and reduce assembly line tooling.

Although a larger part of our stamping does involve carbon steel, we can stamp parts from aluminum, copper, or stainless steel as well. Our progressive die & nut insertion plus tapping capabilities allow us to perform light assembly work according to customer requirements. In addition, any commercially available finish or heat treats can also be provided for our stamped parts.
