Common Fastening Applications
Critical components in countless industries, from furniture making to industrial machines, custom fastening components literally hold our world together. For complex equipment and assemblies, metal stamped parts offer customizable, reliable, and sturdy fastening solutions. To illustrate the versatility of metal parts for fastening applications, we’ve outlined a few of our past stamping and assembly projects below.
With the use of a punch press and progressive die, AIC created a precision pneumatic contact element to fit a custom power tool.
This latch assembly is a perfect example of a custom, precision fastening solution: It featured four discrete components for a complete, high-performance assembly.
Part of a prototyping project, these chrome-plated brackets were crafted to safely secure floor mats in an automotive project. Spot welding, custom plating, and careful inspection processes ensured top performance for this project.
