Ampex excels at high volume production. We have comprehensive metal stamping capabilities up to 600 ton, extensive 4-slide and mutli-slide options along with high precision CNC wire forming and CNC spring coiling.
Ampex has over 55 years of metal stamping experience.
Our stamping capabilities range from 22 to 600 ton allowing us to meet a wide range of Customer needs.
It is our choice to run primarily Minster presses because of the outstanding build quality and high reliability of this equipment. We have also standardized on Link motion controllers, Link die protection sensors, VAMCO feed units and Cooper Weymouth uncoilers.
This combination of world class equipment provides us with a very high level of predictability and uptime. It also allows our Operators to move between machines with complete confidence and competence.
Most importantly, every press is equipped with state of the art safety light curtains. These are presence detection devices designed to safeguard our Staff while working in and around our equipment.
4-slide and Mutli-Slide capabilities are hard to find, however this is a core competency for Ampex.
This style of metal forming is radically different from most other presses. Primarily this process is ideally suited for the high-volume manufacture of stamped components from flat coil or wire stock.
A well designed set of tools will yield high precision components with a minimum of scrapped material, driving down the cost per unit made. At Ampex, we know how to design and build to this level of tooling.
As with our all of our production equipment, we employ standardized controls along with die protection to ensure safety while maximizing reliability and productivity.
Our CNC wire and spring forming capabilities enhance our range of world class metal forming solutions.
Computer Numeric Control is the automation of machine tools that are operated by precisely programmed commands. This is a process that provides a repeatable and highly predictable outcome.
As with progressive die, 4-Slide & Mutli-Slide tooling design, CNC programming requires a complete understanding of our Customer's requirements.
Production efficiency requires the right choice of raw material, optimal tooling design, lean programming and a well trained workforce.
