Smith & Richardson's state-of-the art manufacturing facility features servo and mechanical gap frame punch presses from 10 to 110 tons. 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 stamping 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.
Smith & Richardson's extensive punch press experience includes a variety of metals and alloys including but not limited to:
- Stainless Steel
- All spring steels
- Phosphor Bronze
- Pre-Plated materials
Smith & Richardson's Punch Presses- Features and Benefits
- Servo controlled feed lines allow for precise positioning
- Tonnage monitoring sensors to protect tooling from damage and ensure continuous operation
- Part ejection sensors to ensure continuous operation
- High speed presses capable of 400 strokes/min
- Feedback from feed line requires parts to be at correct size before punching
Smith & Richardson has small high-speed presses that allow us to be highly competitive in the electrical contact business. We have worked with materials related to this industry, this experience allows us to solve potential problems before we produce the tools.
Smith & Richardson can produce your contacts as individual parts or leave them connected and ship them to you in a reel to feed into a machine.
Show Smith & Richardson your parts, we can work with:
- Sharp bends
- Tight tolerances
- Custom 3D forms
- Fine blanking
- Your electrical contact
