Many aspects about manufacturing remain the same for decades. So many regular processes designed solely to fabricate are rarely altered because change costs money, and so often those in charge don’t levy for deviation because “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
The evidence of this type of thinking on our industry, however, is usually scant and lacking. In the world of hydroforming, innovation is part of our reality. We have spent many years designing and scheming for the future; we welcome forward-thought and progress.
For instance, take a look at metal stamping and how it has changed. To most untrained people, the process is simply a few lines of work, pushing materials, and stamping forms. It seems simple, though it really isn’t.
A great example of metal stamping innovation comes from a company on the East Coast called Intricate. They have, among other things, perfected the art of high-speed metal stamping.
From this write-up, it proves that with some extra effort and willingness to exceed previous expectations, hydroforming and metal stamping can go very far with a measured amount of success.
Company innovations include manufacturing speeds up to 1,500 strokes per minute, modular and carbide tooling, and multiple-out manufacturing.
With these types of progressions in the metal stamping field, the positives for consumers reaches new heights. By increasing the strokes per minute, Intricate has shown that metal stamping continues to be a viable source of production.
Add to that state-of-the-art machines, and a core group of people who care incredibly about what they do, and you have a recipe for success and a future full of solid enterprise and progression.
