Other Case studies
Improving the Production Process
The (6) bends and (8) holes require a detailed and customized fabrication process to match the design print. Hardware insertion and final inspection complete this production process.
Reducing Costs with a Progressive Stamping Die
Production costs were increasing because a splash guard and (6) drainage slots were added to the part’s design to meet safety requirements. The part’s length changed with these newly added features and made the existing die unusable.
Lower production costs for the fuel filler by utilizing a more efficient production process. Ensure the new features maintain the overall functionality of the fuel filler cup.

Manufacturer of Rotary Lawn Mower Blade Sharpeners and Balancers for the Outdoor Power Equipment Industry
A recommendation from their previous supplier brought Outdoor Power Equipment Manufacturer’s leaders, Gerd & Erik Bauer, to Ultra’s front doors to continue production of their lawn mower blade sharpener.
Prototyping to Production
A successful transition from a two-piece welded assembly to one-piece aluminum frame with 21 hardware insertions required the manufacturing expertise of our Die Designers and Toolmakers.
Meeting Design Challenges
The tabs on this lock washer were not forming correctly leading to production delays. Prototyping established a feasible manufacturing process that could metal stamp this part and its tabs to the design print.
