When customers need highly precise metalworking with tight turnaround times, they can count on us at Active Manufacturing Corp. We were approached by a client in the automotive industry to manufacture a formed spring steel wire protector bracket, and we were pleased to take on the project. Our client needed a prototype and initial production support within a fast timeframe. Using annealed high carbon spring steel, our team of experts employed our Mazak Laser and our Pro Active Servo Press to laser cut, form, heat treat, and finish with zinc plating for the prototype. A great deal of care was required during machining, as the wire protector bracket had two complex parts that needed to be precisely aligned. The completed bracket featured dimensions of 1-1/4” in length, 1” in width, .021” in thickness, and weighed less than 1 lb. The bracket was produced with uncompromising accuracy as well, with tolerances that were held to ±0.005”. Quality assurance was made with dimensional and visual inspections performed throughout the manufacturing process. We were able to meet all of our customer’s specifications and requirements for a fast turnaround time, with lead times of just one week for the prototype and three weeks for the initial production support, including delivery to our client in Michigan.
