Four Slide Stamping Services

Our four slide capabilities allow us to produce stamped and formed parts with more complexity than can be obtained from a stamping press. The four slide machine allows forming in four or more different directions. They are also well suited to high-volume wire forms. We work with flat stock, round wire, or shaped wire, in metals such as low and high carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, brass, phosphor bronze, beryllium copper, and many other alloys. The materials can be hard or soft temper, and can have a pre-plated or bare finish.

We are capable of working with material of thickness up to .125", width up to 2.125", or diameter up to .312". Feed lengths can be up to 30". We work to tolerances as tight as ±.001". Completed components are inspected with an OGP video measuring system, a profile projector, calipers, or a micrometer. We can also test for force and hardness.

With 50 years of experience in manufacturing high-quality industrial components, Excel Spring & Stamping, Inc. can meet your most demanding requirements. Our dedicated and skilled employees will exceed your expectations for service and reliability. Please contact us today to learn more about our four slide expertise or refer to the table below for additional details.
