Like our business’ title implies, Special Metal Stamping handles a number of metal stamping tasks. We can shape parts, tools, and much more. This isn’t all that we do – we can actually execute some other things in our full shop. Here’s a quick breakdown of what else we have to offer:
Tool and Die
Our expert tool and die makers create machine tools, molds, fixtures, gauges, and more. If it’s used in the manufacturing process, they can handle it. These tools and dies are usually made by hand (sometimes with the help of machines) as the fabrication process requires a high degree of customization and precision.
Powder coating is the process of coating metal with a special powder that is then heat-treated. The result looks like the metal was painted, but the finish is much more durable and holds up well over time, especially in high-pressure environments.
CNC stands for “computer numerical control.” This type of machining is done in conjunction with computers. The specifications are programmed into the computerized system, and then the computer itself controls the machine to create the metal part. Unlike manual machining, where a human is needed at the time to readjust the settings throughout the process, with CNC machining, the computer handles everything.
Also known as “electrical discharge machining,” EDM is a process that is also known as wire burning and spark eroding, among other things. During this process, a piece of metal is shaped by two electrodes. One of the electrodes is the tool, while the other is called the workpiece. Neither touches each other, but they form an electric field that shapes the metal.
Laser and Machine Shop
Laser machining is pretty much what it sounds like – a laser is used to very precisely alter the metal piece in order to form it. Although these lasers can etch and cut away many different materials, they are usually used for extremely hard types of metal.
We understand that manufacturing isn’t cheap, especially when the cost of shipping your items is concerned. It costs more to have one task, such as metal stamping, done by one company, and then have those parts shipped to another location to have them powder coated. This is why we have a full shop that handles everything. Plus, you get the benefit of having all of your parts made in the U.S.A.
