GEMCO’s comprehensive fourslide stamping and multi-slide metal stamping capabilities allow us to fulfill your sourcing needs for parts made from either flat strip stock or wire. Our equipment can handle strip stock material from as thin as .002” up to .093” thick. Round, square or shaped wire capabilities range between .010” dia. through .187”.
Benefits of Fourslide Stamping and Multi-Slide Stamping
A lower tooling investment, compared to other methods, and the rate at which high quality, close tolerance parts can be produced, equals lower costs and a fast turnaround for you. Production runs from a few thousand
to millions are easily handled both on the production floor and in our production management processes. Additionally, working in three planes, fourslide and multi-slide metal stamping can lead to fewer design constraints on a single component, which may offer your design team the benefit of combining two parts into one. To achieve that end, better than half of our fourslide stamping machines already incorporate a progressive die stamping section that gets used in conjunction with the forming tooling. And that’s not all. Our ability to incorporate in-die insertion of electrical contacts, rivets, PEM™ Fasteners and screws, as well as thread tapping, spot welding and other two-stage tooling can eliminate secondary operations, lowering your total component costs even further. Although not appropriate for all parts, your part may benefit from the cost saving advantages offered by fourslide stamping and multi-slide stamping methods.
