CONTINUOUS PROFILED STRIP OFFERS UNLIMITED DESIGN POSSIBILITIES
Materion’s advanced profiling technology enables unlimited design possibilities for use in high speed stamping. Our unique reel-to-reel skiving, milling, and grinding technologies allow you to:
Eliminate your forging and coining challenges by using pre-shaped strip in your stamping die
Solve your component fabrication and two-piece assembly problems with our unique profiles
Simplify the forming of complicated parts in your stamping die with exacting dimensional tolerances
Market applications currently using profiled shapes include connectors, medical devices, fuses and resistors.
ELIMINATE COMPLEX COINING
Do you have a product design that requires multiple thicknesses and radiuses? Materion has a simple solution, provided in coil form so it’s able to go directly into your stamping press. Our team can work with a variety of sizes and alloys including:
Widths up to 150 mm
Nickel, chrome and iron alloys
COMBINE PROFILING WITH ZONE ANNEALING FOR FORMABILITY
We also offer the capability to zone anneal select areas across otherwise hard or spring temper strip ̶ a revolutionary solution for complex devices where a single temper can’t serve both requirements in a product. By diffusing our Electron Beams over a specific location in the strip width, we provide fully softened locations for bending and forming.
Localized softening across the width of profiled coils (indicated by diamond pyramid hardness indents)
Other technologies are often combined with continuous profiled strip to create customized solutions, including:
Contact our engineers for the right solution to your latest challenge. Our metallurgists are standing by to develop a unique solution for your part. If you can draw a profile, chances are we can fabricate mile long coils of that geometry.
