Other Case studies
High Volume Metal Stamping
A crimping operation was added to the metal stamping process to lower costs for this product line. And utilizing only two progressive stamping dies to produce five parts was another cost-savings.
Metal Part with Weight Requirements
The total weight of this part and the positioning of its legs are critical to its performance. An automated inspection system was created to verify both of these features are met after metal stamping has been completed.
Robotic Welding a Stamped Metal Part
Improvements were needed to the welding process to maintain a high-quality and functional metal part. And a more efficient method needed to be implemented to reach acceptable cost levels.
Achieving Tight Tolerances Metal Stamping
Collaborative discussions with the customer helped Ultra fully understand the functionality and features of the thrust ring. It was identified that the part’s tabs required a tight tolerance of no more than .062” to achieve correct alignment with threads during the multi-assembly process.
Delivering Cost-Savings for a Metal Stamped Part
This involved adopting a new way to manufacture the shaft component of this part. And providing assembly of the final part in the stamping press with a progressive die.
