We’ve been experts in metal forming and fabrication for over 60 years. Our experience with a wide range of automotive and aerospace programs means we can support you with engineering excellence. With capabilities ranging from process engineering and hot stamping to laser welding and assembly, we have the expertise your next prototype or production project requires. From small bracketry to complete Body in White vehicles, we offer a range of technologies and services for all of your metal fabrication needs.
We are equipped with the latest technologies in 5-axis and flat pattern laser cutting to cut a full range of materials. Utilizing CO2, O2, nitrogen, and fiber machines, we are able to trim precision metal components with speed and minimal burr. Our machine configurations allow for complex shapes and sizes and accommodate the full range of metallic options with both online and offline programming capabilities. We employ laser cutting capabilities that allow us to work with a wide range of metals, including carbon steel, aluminum, stainless steel, inconel, titanium, coated metals, mild steel, and high strength metals. Our engineering team utilizes Cenit/Fastsuite software to complete off-line programming (OLP) to streamline the first time quality of our process. Our laser cutting department is accredited by Nadcap for AC7116/4 Rev C laser beam machining (LBM).
Looking for a trusted, reliable partner for your metal forming needs? Email us at to see how we can assist with your next prototype or production stamping program. With more than 60 years of experience in the automotive and aerospace industries, 36 presses, and the ability to work with a wide range of metals, we can provide the structural solution your project needs.
Every program has its own set of unique requirements. For battery enclosure projects, we can help plan the entire process, from R&D to production. We specialize in a range of joining technologies, including SPR, RSW, MIG, TIG, laser welding, and adhesives, ensuring we have the expertise you need. Battery enclosures also require unique testing, such as leak testing, which is done to every battery box. We then complete a dimensional check using CMM or laser scanning. This ensures every unit you receive meets your specifications.
We employ a wide range of complex robotic joining methods based on your project’s specific needs and requirements, including resistance welding, hemming, adhesives for structure and bonding, and an onsite curing oven large enough for a completed BIW. We also specialize in flow drills and laser welding, ensuring we are able to use the best possible joining technology for your program. Utilizing both manual and robotic welding allow us to customize the manufacturing process to give you the repeatability and flexibility you need. Our three Centers of Excellence give us the capacity for large prototype joining projects as well as hybrid assembly and production programs.
Our joining technologies include:
•AC manual weld guns (RSW)
•DC manual and robotic weld guns with adaptive controls (RSW)
•Press welder for fasteners (RSW)
•Clinch press for clinch nuts or studs
•Manual and robotic welders (MIG)
•Fronius “cold metal transfer” manual and robotic welders (CMT)
•Manual welding equipment (TIG)
•Drawn arc stud welding
•Self-piercing rivets (SPR) – Henrob & Bollhoff
•Flow drill screws (FFS & FDS)
•Bonding with onsite cure oven capacity for full vehicle BIW
•Roller hemming – adhesive & antiflutter
After assemblies are joined, we post machine critical features that need to be drilled in or tapped. This assortment of joining methods allows us to meet your joining needs, such as joining aluminum to steel.
We have designed and completed programs with a wide array of processes for many materials, including joining aluminum, steel, stainless steel, high nickel alloys, and titanium. We can join dissimilar metals of different thicknesses using our mixed material joining technology, ensuring we can join the materials your program requires.
