Metal Stamping in Appliances
Household appliances perform many tasks that are essential to our daily lives. From electrical devices to washers and dryers, kitchen appliances, and more, consumers have an enormous selection of products to choose from. To meet this demand, the appliance industry requires high-performance parts that are reliable and long-lasting, and to stand out from the competition, finished devices should not only be functional but attractive.
Metal stamping involves numerous techniques that cut and shape metals into custom-designed components. Metal stamping processes create highly diverse parts quickly and cost-effectively. At AIC, we understand the importance of both functional and aesthetic qualities for appliance-related metal stampings. Whether serving commercial or residential markets, we adhere to strict quality standards.
Common Appliance Applications
Stamped metal parts are an essential component of numerous high-performance appliances. Metal stamping delivers precision, polish, and longevity to parts used in appliances such as:
- Custom lighting and lightboxes
- Ice machines
- Industrial mounts and dispensers
- Toaster ovens
- Trash compactors and disposals
- Ranges, ovens, and cooktops
- Outdoor grills
While the components metal stamping provides for appliance applications are incredibly diverse, they all require exceptional uniformity and durability. Appliance-related applications for metal stamping necessitate corrosion, rust, and warp resistance as well as strength at high temperatures. Additionally, many of the metal components used in appliance manufacturing are specialized and highly complex, requiring the experience of a knowledgeable manufacturer. Some of the most common stamped metal components for appliance applications include:
- Heat sinks
- Housings and enclosures
