Progressive Press Tools and its Benefits
Industries these days need something fast, efficient, and affordable at the same time. When it comes to precision metal stamping needs, clients heavily rely on progressive press tools. There are numerous benefits of these tools for industries. Are you considering completing your next precision metal stamping project? Is the end goal precision? Well, here are some of the top things that you need to know about progressive tools in order to make an informed decision about your purchase.
These help in attaining great speeds
When it comes to industries such as automotive, defense, aerospace, electrical, electronics, and so on, there is nothing called as waiting time. These industries need fast results and there is a constant requirement for new components. In progressive press tools, the constant feed of raw material ensures that the stamping machine is continuously in operation. This feature allows you to create more parts in a shorter time when you compare it with the traditional approach. Progressive press tools are designed in a way to provide the lowest cycle times per part for high volume stamping needs.
Less scrap material
Scrap material also incurs major cost for industries and so it is of major concern. However, the progressive press tools are specifically designed to carry out different processes with the same tool. As a result, more parts can be designed with single action or process and more material can be used as well. This will help you save a lot of money in the long run. As a result, when it comes to handling of a major project, the industries prefer to opt for progressive press tools.
Helps in the longer runs
The continuous feeding of raw material ensures that there is no unnecessary stoppage time once the project starts. This adds more speed to the production because there are no unnecessary stoppage time to the overall project. Tooling adjustments take time and with progressive tools this time can be reduced and project sped up.
How do you identify the best?
Well, there are numerous companies that promise to provide the most efficient results in precision stamping. However, not all of them are either qualified or have the necessary skill set to deliver what they promise. So you need to spend time in considering certain important aspects about the company before you can hand over your project to them. Here is what you do:
Look for their experience
One of the first things that you need to do is to identify their experience in this field. Look at what they have done for so many years, their past experience, and also current clientele who are working in this field. The years they spend in this field is a good reflection of what you can expect from them when they handle your project. Experienced companies will ensure that you get more than what you are promised because they clearly understand what you really need and how to make the process better.
What is their cost?
The overall process should also be cost efficient because it will then help you save in the longer run. Some companies have unreasonably exorbitant cost on their products, but you should make sure that this doesn’t happen with you. You need to identify a company that only offers affordable rates so that you benefit in the long run.
What is the delivery time?
Delivery of your finished product should be right on time because then this will have an impact on your project timelines. If the client knows what he/she wants, it will help to set appropriate delivery time. In order to be sure about this, you need to be confident about their punctuality because only then can you be sure about delivery. So spend time in considering this aspect right from the time you contact the company.
Do they have an in-house tool room?
Creative team working in the tool room will ensure that the designing and production of tool is taken care of in the set time line. All of the processes will be transparent and if there are slight problems in the tool there will be no need to carry it far because the tool room and designing team can help to resolve the problem in no time.
