Why contour milled strip?

Contour milled strip can eliminate costly manufacturing operations after stamping, and it opens up new ways to produce electrical and electronic components: Components, which used to be assembled from two or more parts, can be obtained from a multi-gauge strip in one single stamping operation.

An important advantage of contour milled strip used for electrical applications is the fact that there is no need of joints with possibly increased electrical resistivity.

Stamping contour milled strip is more cost-effective than stamping single-gauge strip and coining certain areas in order to reduce their thickness:

  • lower stamping forces
  • less complicated and lighter die
  • higher stamping speed

Advantages of milling

  • Milling does not produce any stresses and allows dimensionally accurate transitions between thick and thin sections.
  • It also reduces customer's tooling costs.

Advantages when stamping contour-milled strip

  • Less coining or folding, requiring simpler tools; strip consumption per stamped part is reduced.
  • Simpler stamping tools, resulting in reduced costs for new tools and maintenance.
  • Lower stamping force, higher stamping speed.
