For medium and high volume stamping parts, KeyTec implements a production process based on progression tools. A progression tool consists of a breakdown of the different steps to create a part in high volume and with a constant precision.
These progression tools contain all operations for flat stamping, bending, forming and deep drawing are operated on our variety of excenter presses, starting with 25 up to 250 Ton stamping force.
Related to the complexity of the part, the volume per year and the lifetime, a tool is constructed under supervision of KeyTec and build with respective partners in both Europe and Asia. With the tool construction, both product quality and total cost of ownership is considered. The tool design is considered and for example depending on the expected lifetime tungsten steel inserts and/or coatings are implemented. This results in optimized investment for our customers.
For specific high volume parts a dedicated vision inspection can be implemented.
