Gripflow Sample Parts
The sample parts below depict characteristics of the Gripflow Stamping Process.
We have been able to eliminate 90% of the die-roll in select areas of this part.
This part was stamped using a 3-station progressive Gripflow Tool.
The material is a low carbon hot rolled steel (SAE 1008/1010).
Section "A" required minimum die-roll and we were able to eliminate approximately 95% of the die-roll. The material thickness is 0.315" while the two small holes are 0.215 +/- 0.002" (68% of the material thickness).
All three (3) holes were pierced in the Gripflow progressive die.
The part is used in a "switching mechanism" assembly within the Electrical Industry.
Gripflow was an economical alternate to milling the area around Section "A" and drilling the two small holes.
