The customer's production needs are 600,000 – 700,00 pieces per year for FIVE different shells having a uniform shape with slight variations in each design.
The shells shown to the left are almost identical except for the design and dimensions of their bottom lips. Previously, the customer was utilizing secondary machining to crimp the lip after stamping; and this method was expensive and extended the production time.

Forming a Metal Part With the 800-Ton Press
This ramp is manufactured on a progressive die that includes only ONE forming station to complete that stage of production. A detailed finishing process includes deburring and polishing.
Comprehensive Die Maintenance Services
This was leading to a decline in the precision and quality of work being performed. Concern was growing that this inconsistent service would negatively impact the quality of their products.
The customer’s plan of action was to establish a tool & die shop that could successfully handle the quantity and diversity of their dies for regular preventative maintenance and unexpected service issues.
Ultra was able to deliver a customized service plan to fit the needs of the customer.
