Fotofab's state-of-the-art facility is equipped to help you with any size production. We can complete your project from start to finish, in-house, with the various services that we have to offer, including 4-slide stamping, or multi-slide stamping.
Four-Slide stamping is a metalworking machine tool that features a horizontal press with four moving tools that strike the metal part from different directions. It is suitable for smaller parts (0.002-0.32″ thickness, and typically narrower than 2″) with a less complex feature geometry. The four axes make it versatile and less expensive to tool than a progressive die.
Common Product Development with 4-Slide Stamping
Four-slide stamping is commonly used for contacts, springs, and small connectors made in a wide variety of metals. Our high-quality standards and craftsmanship remain the same from short-run prototype projects to mass production runs.
Most commonly used materials used for 4-slide stamping include:
- Low-carbon cold rolled Steel
- Spheroidized cold rolled Spring Steel
- Type 300 and 400 Stainless Spring Steels
- Copper Alloys
- Beryllium Copper Alloys
Budget Benefits of 4-Slide Stamping
Four-slide stamping saves you both time and money by forming your product with one machine. Forming your product with one machine will save you both time and money.
