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.
Experts in metal pressings, H T Brigham can assist in the design and manufacture of pressed parts utilised throughout a number of industry sectors. Typical metal pressing applications include those within automotive, medical, construction and electrical fields, but the scope for end use application is virtually without limits.
Ultimately we are here to ensure that your metal pressings are high quality, fit for purpose and are available in the quantities you need, on schedule and within budget. Taking a partnership approach, our engineers are available from early on in a project and we’ll help to determine whether component design changes could facilitate the metal pressing process, rather than more costly manufacturing methods such as forging or casting.
Can meet the most demanding of schedules
Post production services from experienced industry experts
High volume production for a wide range of materials
Investing in the latest, state of the art technology
H T Brigham’s modern presswork facility has a comprehensive range of power presses to meet the most demanding production schedules. Transfer presses up to 300T and progression presses up to 400T can manufacture components in gauges from 0.1mm up to 6mm.
Manufacturing components into the millions, our facility is optimised for high volume production. Working with both ferrous and non-ferrous materials, we can manufacture components from mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper and brass to suit the application and environment. H T Brigham also offers a range of post-production services to meet your specification, including, plating, cleaning, polishing, drilling, tapping or welding.
Our ethos is to continually invest in the latest metal stamping and process technologies; tooling and stamping techniques that deliver consistency in quality, whether we are producing a simple stainless steel stamping, intricate metal pressings or complex deep drawing.
