Stampings - Washers, Shims, Gaskets and Fittings
Using presses rated from 5 tons to 200 tons, manufacturers can produce stampings for washers, shims, gaskets and fittings from a variety of materials. Those materials include brass, copper, stainless steel, spring steel, lead, rubber plastic, cardboard, coated materials and prehardened stock. They come in thicknesses from 0.003" to 0.250".
Among the electrical fittings made by the stamping process are terminals, caps, hammer plates and continuous strip parts.
These stampings are produced at rates to 1,000 parts/hour and are used in the automotive, appliance, construction and specialty industries. Typically, they are incorporated into carbon brushes, engines and motorcycles.
An Integral part of a topnotch stamping manufacturer is a complete in-house toolroom. It should include CNC equipment. The activity in the toolroom begins with AutoCad or similar design and engineering techniques which are implemented through machining and turning systems.
The secondary operations performed in the total stamping process are deburring, finishing, assembly, riveting, welding, tapping, drilling and packaging. Statistical Process Control (SPC) on critical dimensions, and quality-oriented inspection are the bases upon which a leading stamping company operates.
