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.
Stainless steel presswork is highly popular. Often the material of choice, stainless steel is anti-corrosive and resistant even in moisture-rich environments. Where regular or coated steel will deteriorate, stainless steel presswork will retain its cosmetic good looks and performance qualities, making it the ideal choice for applications where appearance is a factor, such as vehicle interiors, white goods and electricals. Ferritic stainless steel presswork is particularly desirable for its lasting shiny finish and this method is often used to produce items for use within the dental and healthcare market sectors.
Uptake in the use of stainless steel has grown steadily in the metal presswork industry, due to the cost saving benefits of manufacturing presswork components from a material which rarely requires any post production coating processes to give the stamping the required surface finish.
Typical stainless steel presswork applications include:
Components which are utilised within the construction industry and must withstand exposure to high levels of moisture without corrosion
Items for the medical industry that must be easily sterilised
Stampings for the domestic interiors market where endurance to daily usage, whilst maintaining a high quality cosmetic finish, is paramount
Ideally placed for all stainless steel presswork requirements, HT Brigham prides itself in offering turnkey solutions that ultimately add value for our customers.
Whether we are tasked with the manufacture of high volume metal pressings or to assist with a single prototype project, we are confident that we have the in-house expertise to facilitate the optimal end result: quality, high performance components which are fit for purpose and manufactured as cost-effectively as possible.
Please get in touch to discuss your next presswork project. Our engineers can help to advise which material choice will be most suitable for the manufacture of your component, in order to achieve the best result.
