Stamping of Stainless Steel Clamps for the Telecommunication Industry
Stamping of Stainless Steel Clamps for the Telecommunication Industry

Arcade Metal Stamping was contacted by a cable and antenna manufacturer to fabricate stainless steel clamps which would be used in a telecommunications application. Our advanced progressive die stamping capabilities enabled Arcade to manufacture these precision components to exact specifications.

The clamps were engineered to meet the standards required by the customer-supplied 3D CAD drawing. As shown in the image, the clamp on the left was composed of 0.035" thick, ¼ hard 300 series stainless steel and the clamp on the right was composed of 0.120" thick 304 annealed stainless steel.

In-house tooling capabilities proved invaluable in designing and building the dies for this project. Formed utilizing our precision 200 and 150 ton progressive die stamping presses; the clamps had final weights of 0.434 lbs and 2.170 lb each. Additional machining was required to enable a clamp to accept a threaded screw. Threads were completed on a three headed tapping machine.

Various quality measures were implemented on this project: in-process dimensional and visual inspections; inspection of holes with go/no go pins; inspection of threads; verification of the fit of clamp to cable; and ensuring the depth of stamps.

The clamps were packaged into specialized boxes producing a two-piece kit, with instructions, that was ready for resale. To learn more about this progressive die stamping project, please refer to the table below or contact us today.
