Fabrication of a Brass Terminal for the Automotive After-Market Industry

At Progressive Die & Stamping, Inc we have a long history of providing precision metal fabrication services to the automotive and aftermarket industries. If new tooling is required, we have the ability to create precision tooling completely in-house as needed.

The product highlighted here was designed for use as an electrical terminal, which is used in a vehicle’s fluid level sensor. It is formed from .315" thick 70/30 half hard brass, and exemplifies our ability to manufacture high volume precision components.

The coil stock had to be bent, slotted, formed, and cutout using a progressive die; this is done on our 80 ton STAMTEC gap press which is able to achieve the required tolerances of ±0.002. After deburring inspections are performed utilizing various measuring equipment to ensure quality and uniformity. We produce approximately 300,000 of these terminals per year for our customer in Georgia, with a lead time of 3-4 weeks per order. For more information about this automotive metal stampings project, see the table below, or contact us directly.
