Stainless Steel Stamping

Stamping of Stainless Steel Wire Protector

This stainless steel wire protector spring is used within a terminal block for the electrical industry. Our superior straightening and forming methods gave us an edge over our competitors to hold the required tight tolerance of +-.003.

We began by custom designing and building tooling specifically for the customer's project. Utilizing a Bihler RM 35 stamping and forming machine, we stamped and formed the .848" long, .145" wide, .178" high and .008" thick springs.

After stamping, the 301 stainless steel springs were heat treated, inspected, tested, and shipped to the client's Bowling Green, Ohio location.
