The Importance of Metal Stamping in Today’s World
Take a look at different industries that use metal stamping:
Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM)
Construction Hardware And Equipment
Medical Devices And Equipment
Electrical And Power Components
Metal stamping is a fabrication method that is simple yet versatile. It has been modified and improved over the years to create the extremely efficient methods we use today. At its most basic level, flat sheets of metal are fed into a stamping process that uses a tool or die surface to create a new shape. Due to the compression forces used to deform the metal into the desired shape, the result is a stronger, more functional component.
These days, we can take just about any metal and form it into any component for any industry. AMS’s machines and staff are highly qualified to manufacture for many industries.
The Key Industries That Rely on Metal Stamping
Metal stamping is used to create durable, accurate components for a number of industries. Let’s take a look at a few that AMS caters to as well as other industries that use metal stamping processes.
Components made for the aerospace industry must meet stringent industry standards and safety regulations. Accurate Metal Stamping offers extremely precise results with tight tolerances. The stamping process gives complies with the latest governing regulations, including FAA, NASA, DOD, ISO, and other standards.
ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT MANUFACTURING (OEM)
Original equipment manufacturing (OEM) depends heavily on precision stamped components for durable custom-designed products. The high strength of metal stamped components helps OEMs design products with greater reliability and a longer service life. Metal stamping is less expensive than other manufacturing processes and is easily automated, making it ideal for speedy, inexpensive production of highly accurate parts.
CONSTRUCTION HARDWARE AND EQUIPMENT
Metal stamping is perfect for manufacturing durable construction hardware and components that can withstand harsh outdoor environments, extreme wear, heavy loads, and corrosive substances. The high strength and wear resistance of metal stamped components make them particularly useful for the harsh conditions common in construction applications.
MEDICAL DEVICES AND EQUIPMENT
People’s lives depend on the precision and reliability of medical components. For many medical device and equipment manufacturers, metal stamping is the ideal manufacturing method for dependable and durable components. Enhanced control over the fabrication process from design through production allows manufacturers in the medical industry to quickly produce parts and assemblies while meeting extremely rigorous health and safety standards.
ELECTRICAL AND POWER COMPONENTS
Electrical components such as connectors, housings, clips, fasteners, and assemblies are often produced using metal stamping processes. Metal stamping can be used to produce highly accurate, durable, and extremely detailed stamped parts necessary for the reliable long-term operation of a variety of power and electrical applications.
