Smith & Richardson's state-of-the art manufacturing facility features servo and mechanical gap frame punch presses from 10 to 110 tons for the manufacturing of precision metal stampings. All punch press work cells are set up to incorporate lean practices reducing lead times and lowering costs to the customer. Pending the design of your parts our presses are capable of holding tolerances to .002”.
We utilize our Global Manufacturing facilities, Asian based along with US based tool room, and technology to produce progressive dies to manufacture precision stamped parts. The benefits realized are reduced tooling cost for progressive stamping dies and reduced production lead times. Strategically we produce stampings and the tooling to produce stampings in the facility that best supports reduced cost to you our customer. These redundant plants allow us to fulfill and emergency planning process to ensure minimal interruption to your precision stamped part requirements.
We combine advanced punch press technology with an expert staff that averages 20 years of industry experience. This unique combination results in the ability to deliver high precision and exceptional value to customers in a wide range of industries including foundry, aerospace, transportation, among others.
Pending the design and production volume required we match your precision stamped parts to the most efficient technology to reduce costs and lead times. We have an approved vendor program to ensure precision stamped parts requiring outside services meet your specifications.
We utilize a vast array of systems including die design software to support our production environment. Our highly trained degreed manufacturing engineering team reviews your design for manufacturability during our Contract Review process. Your part is launched through our “First Part introduction” process, and production results are monitored through our operating system. Control Plans or other quality systems requirements are integrated to ensure your specifications are meet.
