Learn how stamping can drive down production costs

WARWICK, RI - A.T. Wall Company, the precision stamping and tube drawing subsidiary of ATW Companies, announces that it will be showcasing its enhanced stamping capabilities and expertise at The Battery Show 2012, which takes place in November 13-15, 2012, in Novi, Detroit, Michigan, Booth # B550.

A.T. Wall Company representatives will be on hand to discuss how the company can help customers achieve significant cost savings by finding ways to convert machined parts to stamped parts. In large volumes, stamping is a faster method of manufacturing than machining, driving down production costs compared to traditional machining. As an example, on display will be a recent product development of a fuel cell battery top, where A.T. Wall was able to pierce a .078 inch hole through .125 inch material; which far exceeds the industry standard.

According to Matthew Underhay, sales manager for A.T. Wall Company, "We apply our design expertise, material knowledge, and careful monitoring of tool wear to develop a stamping solution that allows us to form material of higher than normal thickness with high precision, well beyond what is usually considered possible."

At the show, A. T. Wall will discuss how they work directly with engineers in the initial phase of a development project to meet design challenges and devise cost effective solutions. Visitors to the show can learn how stamping can give them a competitive advantage when manufacturing batteries.
