Rapid prototyping at H T Brigham adds value for customers
The benefits of 3D printing have been widely reported; fast, low-cost and kind to the environment. This rapid prototyping allows working concepts to be ruled in or out more quickly, speeding up the development process and reducing the project lead time as a whole.
Celebrating 70 Years of Presswork Success
Birmingham metal pressing manufacturer, H T Brigham celebrates 70 years in business this year. The company was established in 1947 by Hugh Terrence Brigham who, with just £80 start-up capital, operated a single hand-press from a garage shed in Birmingham, delivering components locally using his motorcycle and sidecar. He was paid £9 9s 8d on the completion of his first order.

Geared up for high volume component manufacture, H T Brigham has a comprehensive range of power presses to meet the most demanding customer requirements. Components are manufactured using the progression and transfer methods, in gauges from 0.1mm to 6mm in thickness, on presses with a tonnage of up to 400T.
Ongoing investment in modern metal pressings technologies and manufacturing plant, our in-house skills-base and lean production processes help keep us competitive. The factory footprint has been specifically designed to optimise workflow through each department, reducing process waste and ultimately improving efficiency.
A comprehensive range of power presses
Reduced waste and improved efficiency
State of the art equipment and highly skilled staff
A wide range of post-production services
If we can find a better way of manufacturing your steel pressings to save you money, through enhanced design and detailing, or using the pressings process rather than other techniques, we’ll be pleased to point you in the right direction.
Regular preventative tool maintenance is a key element of ensuring production continuity. Our in-house toolmakers keep each production tool in top condition, keeping downtime to a minimum to ensure that critical delivery deadlines are met.
We can also provide a wide range of post-production services to meet bespoke customer requirements. These include mechanical sub-assembly, resistance welding and a variety of finishing options. This can help to take hassle away from our customers, shortening the supply chain and in turn reducing lead-times, helping to cut costs and save time.
H T Brigham’s metal stampings expertise helps keep our customers competitive, whilst enabling us to compete at a global level in our own sector. From your initial metal pressings enquiry, through to design input and the on-schedule production of stamped components, you can be sure of clear and open communications, sound metal pressing advice and no hidden costs.
