Metal Tech Company, Inc. | Precision Metal Stamping at its Best

Aluminum Post-Surgery Eye Protection Cover

Metal Tech Company, Inc. produces high quality precision metal stampings with high volume production capabilities including the project highlighted here in which the company fabricates an aluminum post-surgery protective eye cover for a medical industry customer. The exacting specifications as outlined by the customer’s 2D CAD model are strictly followed. A 60 ton capacity straight side press with automatic coil feeding is employed for the progressive stamping, punching and forming of 0.025” thick 3003 aluminum to the specified dimensions. This precision capability allows for tight tolerances of ± 0.0015” to be achieved during manufacturing. The part is cleaned with a degreasing process and shot-peened for a specialty finish. Internal continuous inspection protocols are applied to assure accuracy and maintain the highest standards of quality control.

Typical turnaround time for a project of this magnitude is four months with approximately 1,500,000 units produced.
