Wire-Forms

  • WAFIOS wire-forming, CNC (ø.070” – ø.157” high carbon) (low carbon max ø .236”)
  • AIM 3D wire-bender, CNC (ø.079” – ø.236” high carbon) (low carbon max ø.314)

Stampings

Apex Spring and Stamping provide cost-effective in-house manufacturing of stampings, blanking, bending, drawing, swedging, and chamfering. Our in-house tool and die experience lets us provide manufactured parts complete and sometimes eliminating secondary operations. (Reduced Costs to our customers)  The value of having a different process in-house between our metal forming areas gives us the advantage to provide tooling and pricing with the greatest value. (Progressive stamping, multi-slide, and fourslide technologies.)

Material Types

  • Spring steel (SAE-1050- SAE-1095) annealed and pre-tempered
  • Cold-rolled (CRS-1008-CRS-1010)
  • Brass, Beryllium copper)
  • Stainless steel (301-304)
  • Aluminum
  • Pre-tempered (martensite, stainless steel, brass)

Capacity of Our Press Equipment

  • (18) 45 – 200 ton gap frame presses
  • Press bed sizes range from 16.0” x 31.5” (45 ton) to 34.0” x 57.0” (200 ton)
  • In die sensing (standard on all tools)
  • Inline (die) tapping – reduced processes/handling
  • In die staking – reduced processes/handling
  • Customer specific designs
  • Low to high volume run capabilities

Wireforms

Apex Spring & Stamping provides highly precision wireforms to suit the needs of our customers. We offer low to high volume run capabilities. Apex engineering team can provide developmental support for customer needs.

Common Materials

  • C1008/1010 basic wire
  • Music wire per ASTM A228
  • Precoated material
  • Chrome Silicon
  • Stainless Steel

Post Processing Offerings

  • Stress relieving
  • Protective Coatings
  • Passivating

Wire Size Range

  • Wire sizes low carbon .25mm – 8.0mm (.010” - .314”)
  • Wire sizes high carbon, .25mm – 6.0mm (.018” - .156”)

Multislides-Fourslide

Multiside (or “fourslide”) forming is a metal stamping process requiring special equipment, skill, and manufacturing systems.
This technology permits very complex part geometries, typically for small parts.

Multislide/fourslide stamping is a cost-effective process for complex parts in large volume part runs (due to the time required to set up the many tooling components). It can also be an economical solution for short-run part production, particularly when tooling costs are considered.

Advantages

  • Capable of holding moderate to tight part tolerances
  • Drilling and tapping and assembly can be performed in-die, thus avoiding a secondary operation
  • Multiple and complex compound bends and forms can be performed with ease
  • Multislide stamping generally has a lowers tooling cost when compared to more expensive progressive die
  • Generally, Multislides reduce material usage and therefore cost, compared to traditional manufacturing approaches with complex carry systems
  • Material may be purchased to finished width, reducing scrap between parts.

Assemblies

Our Value Add is the fastest growing segment to our business. Using our experience and latest technology we are often able to save our customers both time and money as we manage the assembly process. Apex has developed a strong supplier base in the following areas:

Supplier Base Areas
