The first and most fundamental process that Northern Industrial Manufacturing products go through is the stamping process. Northern Industrial utilizes a variety of different press sizes from 60 tons to 175 tons. While we can stamp steel of all types, sizes and shapes our primary stamping range specifications are:
- Size: Up to 6″ (152.4 mm)
- Material: SAE 1008 Through SAE 1095
- Shape: Single Layer (Flat)
- Thickness Range: 0.016″ (0.4mm) to 0.200″ (5.0 mm)
- Thickness Tolerance: +/-0.0004 inches (0.010 mm)
- ID/OD Tolerance: +/- 0.004″ (0.1 mm)
- Compound Master Dies
- Flatness : 0.001 inches (0.025 mm)
- Parallelism: 0 .001 inches (0.025 mm)
- Surface Finish: 0.25 Micro Meter (10 micro inches)
- Volume: Greater Than 10,000 Annually
Northern Industrial Manufacturing has chosen to exclusively use compound tooling to manufacture our products. The advantages this compound tooling offers Northern Industrial and thus its customers are:
- Lower Up Front Investment
- Lead-Time Reductions
- Concentricity Improvements
- Lower Maintenance Costs
- Reduction of Engineering Resources at the Customer Level
Whether your volumes are 5,000 pieces annually or 10 million, consider Northern Industrial for your high volume production stamping needs.
Cost reduction engineering is a large part of the value that we provide our customers. Including Northern Industrial early in the design of your application can greatly increase the manufacturability of the product making it easier for us to produce the product, and reduce the overall cost of your part.
If already designed and in the quotation stage, it is very common for us to form a cross functional team to review the different options available from a cost engineering and design perspective. Keeping the application specific details in mind, and leveraging our years of experience, we can suggest cost saving synergies for your program. Our cross functional engineering and manufacturing team has had a high degree of success in a variety of different applications. These applications include:
- Automotive Transmissions
- Transfer Cases
- Differential Cases
- Automotive Rear Axles
Let Northern Industrial Manufacturing help you save money and increase your bottom line. Our engineering and manufacturing teams will work hand in hand with your design and application engineers to ensure that the intent of the design is not compromised, even when much of the cost is designed out.
Our engineering staff has years of automotive and design experience and are always ready to assist in the development of new products or the continuous improvement of existing parts. Over the years our experiences led us to the development of our proprietary Pressure Velocity (PV) Tester. Throughout the life of our proprietary PV Tester, we have been able to save our customers millions of dollars in reduced:
- Design Validation Cost
- Design Testing Cost
- Project/Launch Timelines
- Piece Price
- Design Engineering Costs
- Engineering Budgets
Our first success story was our ability to target a specific application in an OEM Transmission and replace an underutilized needle bearing with a drop in component. This saved our customer close to $1.00 per part or $2MM annually and was transparent to the existing design and assembly process.
We would like for this technology to work for your company. Our Engineering staff is a phone call or click away.
