Precision part stamping and assemblies are an integral part of the services we offer at American Industrial Company. Our stamping processes include bending, forming, progressive, blanking, secondary, coining, shallow draw and piercing.

Working with metals such as stainless, cold/hot rolled and galvanized steels as well as aluminum, brass and copper, we stamp products with thicknesses from 0.005” to 0.188” and to tolerances of ±0.001”. We can also stamp parts in High Strength Low Alloy (HSLA) steel. Monitoring the stamping process is critical to produce high quality parts, and at American Industrial Company we utilize load tonnage monitors, proximity sensors, infrared lasers, fibre optics and other devices to ensure accuracy. If secondary operations are needed, we offer a wide range of services. Vibratory deburring, painting, plating and welding are just a few of the processes that we use to complete a part or assembly.

Our engineering staff can assist you in prototype design and evaluation, and we offer production runs up to 1,000,000 parts with typical lead times of 4 to 6 weeks. We even offer stocking programs to give our customers options in staggering deliveries. Using lean manufacturing principles, we operate an ISO 9001:2008 certified facility, and can assist you in every facet of production to ensure competitive pricing, high quality and short delivery times.
