Smith & Richardson has the ability to use perforated material in our slide forming machines. We typically use a #6 perforation size, but we have the capability to make a custom perforation pattern. We can then form the perforated material into your desired shape. If additional notches, slots, or holes need to be added to the perforated pattern we can provide that as well.
We combine advanced slide forming capabilities with an expert staff that averages 20 years of industry experience. We utilize our Global Manufacturing platform, Asian based along with US based tool room, and technology to produce tooling to manufacture precision slide form parts. The benefits realized are low tooling cost and reduced production lead times.
We utilize a vast array of systems to support our production environment. Quoting new precision slide formed parts is accomplished through Contract Review, new jobs are launched through our First Part Process, and production results are monitored through our operating system. Control Plans or other quality system requirements are integrated to ensure your specifications are met.
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, and armaments.
