PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

CASE STUDY: CASTING TO STAMPING

This part had been previously produced using an casting process.  MTD’s product engineers redesigned the part utilizing our Wrapped Tubular Stamping Technology and developed successful prototypes allowing the customer to prove out the product change.  Through early research and development coupled with hard tool prototyping leading to mass production this new part eliminated the cast design and the need for an expensive secondary machining process.  The results was a significant cost reduction for our customer.

MTD serves the metal-working industry by supporting the Auto, Commercial Truck, Furniture, Appliance, Alternative Energy and Exhaust markets. MTD is experienced in aluminum, HRS, CRS, HSLA, AHSS and stainless steel materials.
