Laser trackers with stamped parts

As the standards within the Automotive industry has grown laser trackers have become more and more frequently used. For example, in the creation and inspection of a die. The laser tracker can be used to digitize the surface of a clay model. Cool, right?

Optimized supercars

Even the supercars need stamped parts (stampings). They might not always be the best looking but it does its job. In this particular we’re talking about a solid of 6082-T6 aircraft-grade aluminium. This means that the each part can be optimized for the function it needs to perform.

Inline washing process

In some cases the purity of the stampings is really important, like in the automotive industry. I’ve read about custom-made washing equipment for the stamped parts to be cleaned, rinsed and dried. After that the products go through a quality control before delivery.

Medtec Europe

This week Medtec Europe in Stuttgart – the number one exhibition providing medical technology professionals – has gathered manufacturers and medical professionals from all over the world. Medical springs, stampings and other solutions have been discussed as well as shown in various stands. Mostly we’re talking about wire forms and stampings when it comes to produce for the medical applications.

Every tool is unique

How much more electronic can it get :)? A PCB for a smartphone. I’ve seen stampings go into these smartphones for years and I’m always fascinated by the accuracy going into these productions. Every unique tool is created for its specific project and then it’s putting it all together to create sweet music. Impressive.

How stampings are made

Have you ever been to a factory manufacturing stampings? Then you’ve seen that the machine area is just a part of the production. The other part is an awesome tool shop where stamping tools are made to produce the stamping part. We’re talking millimeter angles. So cool and impressive.

Here’s a video where you can see how the stamping tools work when they’ve been adjusted.

Stamped love!

I don’t think these stampings or stamped parts are common in factories but I couldn’t help myself. But I can live with that because it’s Valentine’s day. Take care of yourself and your loved ones!


Not so wireless after all

Stampings are common in the telecom industry. They could be sub components for cellphones, such as decorative panels, contact clips etc.


A true american classic

Seen this classic before? The motorcycle of all motorcycles. Steve McQueen’s Harley Davidson. This bike has the 1912-only crankcase breather and keeps its factory pistons with matching barrel stampings. How cool is that?! Like I said, a true classic.
