Metal stamping manipulates flat metal sheets to create and form parts in a vast array of shapes and designs. The cold-forming process feeds metal into a press, which then utilizes force and tooling to cut and shape the material. The process offers precision accuracy, consistency, efficiency, and affordability to a manufactured product.
Aranda Tooling, Inc. is an industry-leading manufacturer of high-quality custom stampings and components for diverse industries. Our custom capabilities for metal stamping include:
For the appliance industry specifically, we help produce reliable metal stamped components that will hold up against the harsh environmental conditions and everyday use that appliance parts will face. Read on to learn more about the applications and advantages of stamped components in the industry.
Metal Stamping for the Appliance Industry
Appliances are essential to numerous everyday activities, both for individuals and businesses. Given their constant use, these appliances rely on durable, long-lasting metal stamped components for optimal efficiency and functionality. Metal parts for this industry must withstand extreme temperatures and be resistant to rust, corrosion, and warping, all while maintaining their strength. Also, manufacturers often need these appliance metal stampings in bulk, requiring repeatable, uniform parts with fast turn times without compromising quality.
Custom Stamping Capabilities for Appliances
Metal stamping allows manufacturers to produce custom-designed components quickly and easily. While adhering to strict quality standards, Aranda Tooling can create parts for the appliances industry that are functional, aesthetically pleasing, and tailored to your application. Our custom offerings include:
- Clips and clamps
- Covers, cases, and sleeves
- Ground straps
Common Stamping Applications in the Appliance Industry
The above parts have extensive applications in the appliance sector, such as:
- Residential and commercial kitchens and food preparation. Metal stampings are vital components in large appliances like refrigerators, ovens, stoves and hoods, and dishwashers, as well as smaller kitchen appliances like food processors, blenders, mixers, and garbage disposals.
- Additional household and commercial uses. Washers, dryers, and water heaters, as well as security, garage door, and vacuum systems, all use stamped components to function.
- Climate control. Thermostats, HVAC units, fans, and dehumidification and ventilation systems are examples of appliances using stamped parts in temperature control applications.
- Outdoor use. Outdoor applications for metal stamped parts include grills, outdoor kitchens, irrigation systems, and filtration systems and pumps for spas or pools.
Advantages of Metal Stamping for the Appliance Industry
Metal stamping is highly effective for producing strong and dependable components for the appliance industry. The most significant advantage of this innovative manufacturing technique is the degree of accuracy it achieves, offering superior precision at a micron level. The margin for error is extremely limited due to the advanced technologies involved, such as cameras and sensors that monitor each step of the process. Better yet, this high level of quality is sustainable even at high speeds and in high-volume production.
Metal stamping is very versatile, giving us the flexibility to produce parts in a wide array of shapes and sizes for diverse applications and industries. It’s applicable for a range of materials, as well, including:
- High- and low-carbon steel
- Stainless steel
- Nickel alloys
Cost efficiency is another significant metal stamping advantage. Reducing the needed workforce, machinery, and overall production time necessary to complete a task lowers costs considerably.
