ETCO has been working with OEM, Tier I, II & III suppliers since 1947. We are a single source solution for all of your electrical connections.
Our in-house engineering department provides customers with a turnkey solution including design development, rapid prototyping, production and custom automated assembly machinery. All of our dies and tools are engineered in-house to maintain tight tolerances from a wide range of alloys in a variety of configurations from 0.008” to 0.070” thick with tolerances to +0.002.”
With a state-of-the-art EDM and CNC machines, our expert die makers make high quality tools. We work closely with our customers to ensure the most cost-effective material, plating, and packaging is selected for their product needs. Our facilities have over 20 high-speed Bruderer stamping presses ranging from 10 to 60 tons that operate nearly 24 hours a day. We service over 1,000 customers throughout the world, providing a range of custom stampings from reel-to-reel terminals to complex large loose piece automotive lead frames.
Metal Stamping and Manufacturing in the USA
ETCO’s heritage of precision metal stamping services dates back to the company’s origins in 1947. The company place priority on metal stamping tight-tolerance, close-pitch, high-precision and light-gauge metal components.
A Variety of Metal Stamping Options
The company’s metal stamping operations consist of a variety of presses primarily comprised of Bruderer presses for the highest quality stamping action. Some the materials that are run through the custom precision metal stamping process include Copper, Bronze, Stainless Steel & Copper and Cold Rolled Steel with thickness ranging from 0.008″ to 0.075″. ETCO never uses Lead-based materials or materials that are harmful to the environments. Consequently, ETCO can provide metal stamping services and products for a wide variety of industries at some of the lowest prices in the industry.
ETCO has the capability of using a variety of materials for our metal stamping projects. Currently we use:
ETCO is uniquely qualified to produce large volume applications because we serve specific high volume markets including appliance manufacturers, automotive manufacturers and medical industry manufacturers. In-die thread tapping of stamped components. This process provides a more consistent product while reducing tool cost and piece price. Mostly suited to a high volume application.
Our metal stamping capability is currently equipped with multiple Metal stamping presses. It consists precision high speed as well as normal and long stroke. ETCO manufactures a variety of parts for multiple industries and in several material types that are as thin as .05mm to larger frames and heavy duty multiple use metal components. Our precision metal stamping presses can accommodate multiple weights and tonnage. With speeds up to 1,500 per minute no job is too large. In addition to presses and auxiliary equipment, our metal stamping capability is equipped for in process inspection with CPK analysis, as well as press mounted vision systems where required. Additionally, there are aqueous cleaning systems, and atmosphere controlled ovens for heat treatment of beryllium copper and other requirements. Our stamping services also have skiving equipment to contour metal thickness and configuration as required.
