Metalstamp Inc.

Company Name: Metalstamp Inc.

Press Model: Two AIDA NC1-1500(D) Gap Frame Servo Presses, NS2-2000(D) Straightside Servo Press

Main Product / Service: Produces a range of components and assemblies for items used in engine control management and new six-speed transmissions

Company Type: Contract Stamper

Markets Served: Primarily serves the automotive industry as a second and third tier supplier

Why I Chose AIDA: Metalstamp needed to run a unique in-die assembly process at higher volumes yet gain the necessary production efficiencies, a job that could not be performed on a conventional straightside press. "With AIDA's ServoPro equipped NC1-1500(D) (150 ton capacity) gap frame press we realized if we ran the press in a forward/reverse motion using only part of the stroke, we could achieve the necessary production rates yet when needed, top stop would give us immediate access to the tooling as the technology's full stroke is quite long."

How AIDA Helps My Business:"Production volumes are high for components made from high performance copper, brass alloys and inlay and stripe plated materials. In operating the gap press we realized that with ServoPro we could slow the stroke, stop it, reverse it or create any combination we wanted. As a result of this flexibility we've begun to quote jobs we could not have considered in the past such as pausing at a given point in the stroke to perform laser welding or component insertion."

Why I Recommend AIDA: "One of the problems we were able to minimize was the reverse tonnage that was generated by the high linear inches of cutting. Because ServoPro's silent blanking motion reduces punch velocity, we were able to run jobs generating small reverse tonnage loads on a smaller press while significantly reducing the shock and vibration at the point of material fracture."
