Metal stamping is a great option for high-volume sheet metal parts. Metal stamping, or hard tooling, produces parts with fewer quality issues, greater part consistency, and lower part costs. Parts are produced quickly and require little labor, which can be highly beneficial as a product becomes a staple in the market and demand increases. There is an up-front capital investment to develop tools, but metal stamping will be more cost-effective over time. For the right application, ROI can be realized in as little as two months.
Tenere knows that not every program is ready for metal stamping right off the bat, or there is not time to wait while tools are in production, which is why we offer both soft tool metal fabrication and metal stamping in our facilities. This allows our customers to slowing ramp up using flexible soft tooling capabilities while they test the market or wait for their metal dies to be built.
