What it Means to be a Single Source for Metal FabricationLeave a Comment
Since our founding in 1981, American Industrial Company has been at the forefront of the metal stamping industry.
Metal stamping may seem like a simple one-step process, but it rarely is. There are processes that must be performed before any actual metal stamping takes place, such as piercing or blanking. After the stamping itself has been performed, any number of secondary and finishing processes must be applied to the part.
When a metal stamper has to turn to third parties for certain processes such as laser cutting, this will often result in increases in production time and costs. Working with AIC is different. We are a single source metal fabricator.
AIC as Your Single Source
From prototyping a single piece, to short runs of a simple part, to long runs of complex pieces; AIC is equipped to perform virtually any secondary or value-added process that is required.
If there is a particular process that your part must go through, AIC is able to perform it. We can perform a wide array of standard stamping procedures, including: deep and shallow drawing, coining, blanking, bending, and progressive stamping.
Unlike other stampers, though, we offer a similarly large selection of secondary and finishing operations. Some of these services include:
- Secondary machining
We also offer a number of value-added services. As a single source, our team offers design engineering and prototyping, in-house die design and building, reverse engineering, sub-assembly and assembly.
When we say that AIC is single source, we truly mean it. One of the most important ways in which we work to help your business run smoothly is our logistical support.
Whether you use a Kanban inventory control system, work using the Just-in-Time (JIT) methodology, or require Dock to Stock (DTS) compliance, AIC has the infrastructure to meet your needs.
