Progressive Die Stamping of a Stainless Steel Terminal Tab for a Motion Control / Switch Manufacturer
Arcade has been partnering with a client in the motion control/switch industry for over 15 years in the manufacture of stainless steel terminal tabs. These tabs were originally produced in-house but the client transferred this capability to Arcade along with the existing tooling.
Over a three month period the customer moved over 50 individual tools to our facility and we were up and running almost immediately. Our expert progressive die stamping capabilities produce terminal tabs from 302 stainless steel with ¼ hardness on our precision 30 ton high speed Minister press. The parts have dimensions of 0.60" long, 0.35" wide, and an estimated part weight of 0.002 lb.
Parts are verified to meet standards with quality measures that include dimensional, visual, and gage inspections. In addition to stainless steel, we also produce stampings from cold rolled steel, hot rolled steel, aluminum, brass, copper, Kovar, silver, galvanized and galvannealed steel.
Arcade produces approximately 10,000 stainless steel terminal tabs annually for this client. To learn more about this project, please see the table below or contact us today.
