What is Metal Stamping?

Metal stamping is a cost-effective process for manufacturing complex parts that require medium to high production volumes. The use of precision tooling ensures minimal dimensional variation during production to create a high-quality part.

We use a variety of processes based on a number of factors;

  • Part shape: The complexity of the part along with the material thickness, part tolerances and the number of operations required, often dictate the best manufacturing approach.
  • Stamping materials: We process a wide range of materials including cold and hot rolled steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass and other specialty alloys. Material thickness can range from 0.003” up to .312”.
  • Tooling: We have the capability to design and build progressive dies for high-volume production of complex parts. In addition, we also offer single and multi-stage tools using manual and automated part transfer systems.

Technical Support Capabilities

Our technical support capabilities are a cornerstone of our success. We employ the most highly skilled engineers in the business with experience in all aspects of precision metal stampings, tool design and secondary processes. Each project is carefully analyzed to identify the critical factors for successful production to ensure we fully understand what needs to be done and how it should be done.

Vulcan Industries’ technical capabilities include:

  • Design software: We use AutoCAD Mechanical and Solid Works. Our tool designers are experienced in the design of single, multistage and progressive tools.
  • Design review: Design reviews are performed on all precision metal stampings to ensure accuracy to confirm that the part can be successfully manufactured. Often times we collaborate with our Customers to suggest improvements to help simplify the design. This process typically results in lower customer costs, easier manufacturing and seamless assembly.
  • Tooling: We design and manufacture 95% of tooling in-house. Particular attention is given to features such as part accuracy, repeatability, reliability and tool life. Our team of skilled tool and die makers build service and maintain all tooling.
  • Problem solving: A project manager is appointed for each order. It’s their responsibility to monitor production and resolve problems, whether in-house or with component suppliers. This ensures parts are correct and delivered on time.
  • Continuous improvement: We continually seek ways to improve processes, reduce waste and, through lean manufacturing techniques, reduce overall costs.
