Process & Material Development
It’s nerve-wracking when you’re looking for a outsource partner that has the right skill set to support your production process. They need to have experience in material development, die design, GD&T, and process robustness – and all of that has to be under one roof.
Optimal Processes & Materials, Better Production Outcomes
When outsourcing, understanding your process and how it is developed creates a symbiotic relationship between the customer and vendor that results in optimized quality, value and productivity. Having faith the vendor understands your needs as well your process is key in creating a seamless switch from producing stamping in house to outsourcing perhaps your most troublesome jobs.
At Superior, we specialize in creating that relationship by engaging not just our engineering, but our shop floor toolmakers, production worker, and quality technicians. Our founding owners believed in this approach that has been carried on for decades.
From your draw dies to the trim/flanging die and precision hole size/orientation, their isn’t much our staff hasn’t seen and experienced.
Supported by multiple production processes of:
- Manual part Transfer using inline press lineups
- Robotic part Transfer
- Coil-Fed Progressive die & Blanking
Note: As we are not design responsible, material selection is already made prior to the die coming to Superior. What is important is the understanding of how a material reacts in the stamping process is key to getting die to run effectively, which in the majority of cases is the key complaint that customers have.
We have experience in carbon and stainless steel, ranging from simple low carbon to complex dual phase 980 steels, coated steels (aluminized and Galvanized), structural non-critical finish (2 finish) to Class A surface quality.
When it’s time to release your stamped metal part design to the shop floor, we’re here to help you get the right processes in place and best materials in stock. Our process and material development services are perfect for companies making stamped components for many industries.
