Metal stamping is a process that uses dies to transform flat metal sheets into shapes. In the most basic sense, it’s an operation where metal is cut with a component. Stamping can be performed both as a progressive operation or with a stage tool. Metal stamping is used to produce parts for large machinery or can be molded into shapes for household items.
Here at R&M Manufacturing, we are committed to delivering competitive pricing. We understand that each customer has different needs, so we work with customers as individuals in order to provide them with what they need. There’s no doubt that we manufacture quality parts to exact specifications, but it’s important to realize that’s not all we do. Here’s a look at what else we provide our customers.
When it comes to our relationships with customers, we’re not just metal fabricators, we’re also problem solvers. Typically, our customers come to us with a need for a high-quality prototype. They’re looking for a metal component that does exactly what they need it to do. Developing, designing, and fabricating a new component depends on many variables, so we work closely with our customers to develop something that fits their needs and works within the guidelines of metal fabrication.
Whether you’re talking about parts or tools, a properly dimensioned print can mean the difference between success and failure. And if the dimensioning isn’t compatible with a part’s real-world function, following a tool print’s specifications isn’t going to give you a great result. Here’s what you need to know about dimensioning a print.
The metal manufacturing process your part or component goes through is going to depend on the specifics of your need. We’re a multifaceted metal manufacturer, meaning we have multiple ways to make a part. We have comprehensive equipment, and we have highly-skilled employees who aren’t just metal fabricators – they’re problem solvers.
Having a custom tool made isn’t cheap, but, it can be a wise investment. If your current metal manufacturing efforts include a recurring component that is fabricated on a consistent, ongoing basis, having a tool developed can be a great option. Here are a few reasons why.
Since 1969, R&M Manufacturing has been a leading producer of precision sheet metal components. With 40+ years of experience in sheet metal fabrication, our methods are repeatable and economical. Here’s a little bit about the history of R&M and how it came to be the company it is today.
R&M offers design and engineering assistance to help our customers create the best parts and mechanical assemblies possible. We work with customers with full engineering departments, customers without any engineers on staff, and everyone in-between. Here’s an in-depth look at our CAD services.
In metal manufacturing, quality control is essential. There need to be processes in place to ensure quality and consistency. Whether we’re creating hundreds, thousands, or millions of components, ISO quality standards provide the processes – and third-party accountability – to deliver consistent, quality components to our customers.
Getting to know the sheet metal manufacturing industry can be a bit of a confusing process. There are a lot of terms and processes that come naturally to those of us who’ve been in the industry a long time. But, for those of you who are just getting started, this little glossary should help.
