Long before we became experts in precision metal fabrication, Century-Tywood was a well established metal stamping house, providing high quality precision stampings to businesses across the New England region. Today, with close to a dozen machines in operation, our metal stamping operation is still an integral part of Century-Tywood Manufacturing and a synergistic complement to our metal fabrication. It allows us flexibility in how we can approach projects using the best of both worlds to deliver the highest value to our customers.
Metal Stamping Capacity
With machines running from 20 to 80 tons, our largest press has a part capacity up to 12″ x 18″ and 80 tons of punching power.
Century-Tywood has a wide-ranging capability for metal stamping operations from blanking to embossing to bending and notching.
Our stamping capabilities allow us to augment our manufacturing process with cost-effective options for small to medium-sized parts in the production process. We have can punch small and medium sized parts in as little a single hit and can handle challenging processes such as embossing locations on larger parts.
As a result, instances where an embossing operation requires a tool that is too large for the Turret Presses, we can create these tools for the punch press instead, creating manufacturing flexibility that balance out of production and reduce bottlenecks in critical operations such a Press Brake forming.
In other cases, we have parts where a progressive die allows us to not only punch the part but also form the item in the punch press during the same setup. This type of tool takes us from raw coil stock to a completed part in one operation, which turns into significant cost savings for our customers.
Prototype to Production
Quantities are always a consideration as hard tools need to be manufactured for production runs. In these instances our fabrication capabilities allow us to run small quantites as protoypes without the high cost of tooling. As production ramps up we are then able to seamlessly move to a hard tooling operation on a punch press, helping reduce costs as manufacturing demand increases.
