Manufacturing custom metal stamped prototypes can be a big undertaking. It takes time to perform research and development, production, and of course, inspection and delivery. Because of these factors, it can often mean higher costs compared to standard parts. And that’s just one reason why many people shy away from prototypes and other experimental designs, and settle with stock products, if possible.
But at Atlantic Precision Spring, custom designs are preferred. It allows us to work directly with our customers, understand their problems, and construct products that meet their unique needs. Precision is vital because metal stamped products must be spot-on with each designs and fit specific specifications. Each carefully crafted part calls for accuracy and personalization. So rather than settling for a standard stamp that will not yield the result you’re looking for, we suggest contacting our short run department. That’s the team who will handle short run needs and custom orders.
Also known as our secondary department, you’ll realize that there is nothing secondary about it. This team specializes in manufacturing high-quality products for small volume orders. We create and modify dies and have quick turnaround times on volumes less than 5,000 pieces. This is ideal for low budget or low quantity orders, or designs/specifications that change often. Some short run stamping types can include:
- Experimental designs
- Specialty products
- Highly customized stampings
- One-of-a-kind products
- Sample stampings
Atlantic Precision Spring uses a variety of machines to complete short run tasks within the secondary department. Rather than outsourcing – which costs valuable time and money – we have all the capabilities in-house to produce any custom part you need. Here are some of those featured machines:
- Hydraulic presses are very versatile and can alter products in many different ways. The size and shape come from different pressure settings and the resulting force applied to the metal.
- Automatic-tapping machines have two main benefits: increased productivity and decreased cost – not a bad combination! The secret is the automatic feeding process that saves time while manufacturing parts.
- Deburring machines are crucial for finishing products. Smooth edges and precise specifications result from the deburring process.
Our workspace also has manual foot presses and hydraulic turning machines. Remember, our secondary department does not outsource. You’ll work closely with our team from start to finish where we’ll ensure accuracy and precision with every part!
