Multi-slide Stamping of a Copper Contact Clip for the Electrical Industry
A customer in the electrical industry approached Slidematic Products Co. in need of a stamped copper contact clip, to be used within an electrical application. Our team determined that fabrication would require a multi-slide stamping with plating. We worked closely with the customer throughout the process, ensuring all specifications were met.
Our expert team designed and built the multi-slide tool using our state of the art CAD/CAM and CNC equipment. This multi-slide stamping was made of copper and needed to be tin plated. Working both with our customer and our tin plater, we were able to determine that the most economical way to get the finish needed was to post plate the clip instead of having the raw material pre-plated. The raw material measured .050" thick and .375" wide. The finished contact clip was .837" long, and the tolerances held were down to +/-.003".
Upon completion, we performed a full PPAP/FAI along with a capability study on the product to be sure all specifications were met and held. During the months following approval, we were able to deliver the 4 million piece order to our customer in the Midwest, whose expectations were met and exceeded.
