We’ve focused on providing fast, accurate, and cost-effective metalworking at Active Manufacturing Corp. since our inception in 1986. We specialize in prototype and short-run production for many different areas of business, including extensive work in the automotive industry. In this project, a customer needed a window accent trim for an aftermarket automotive application, and we were pleased to take the contract. Using 430 Bright Stainless Steel, we employed our state-of-the-art equipment, including a Mazak laser and a 220 Ton Komatsu Press, to form and trim this product. Our customer’s previous supplier could not produce parts with consistent quality; we were able to form this trim with a class A surface and provide handling that prevented scratches and protected its polished finish. The completed trim measured 21” in length, 7” in width, had a thickness of 0.019”, and weighed less than 1 lb. Our highly accurate equipment enabled us to keep tightest tolerances to ±0.010”, with dimensional and visual inspections performed throughout the process to ensure the highest quality. Our client was very pleased with our work, making us the sole supplier for this type of part and consulting with us for additional project partnerships. We were able to complete this project in its entirety and deliver it to our Indiana client within 3 to 4 weeks. This customer now requests 300 to 500 of these steel window trims per order.
