Why Short Run Stampings?

Even in today’s high-tech world short run stampings still provide a key component in the lean manufacturing model. From 50 to 50,000 parts, short run stampings allows you to get a high quality part at an in-expensive piece cost. With a variety of stamping and metal forming companies out there, why should you choose short run stamping and the Clow Stamping Company as the supplier for your upcoming project?

PRICE- Both tooling and piece part costs are kept to a minimum through the use of common holders and common forming tools used by many of our customers. Clow makes all of their tooling in-house and maintains the tool for the entire production of the part. You can expect the tooling to be 5-10% of the average cost of a progressive tool.

QUALITY- Through the use of technical advances in both engineering and quality control, stampings will provide you with quality unmatched by most other manufacturing processes such as a turret press. A stamping can provide a prettier part without creating the burn a turret or laser would create.

DELIVERY- Technical advances, such as wire EDM machines, have drastically reduced tooling times. With an average on-time delivery rate of 99.5%+ Clow is set up to be the reliable suppler you can trust.

VALUE ADDED- With the aid of our outside services, which we work closely with, we can provide various value-added operations. Examples are: plating, painting, silk-screening, heat treat, etc.

To see how the Clow Stamping Co. can help with your next project, reach out to our team at 513-662-8115 or hello@weigel-associates.com for more information. We look forward to the opportunity to earn your business.

Inventory Management Program

Is a lack of an Inventory Management Program causing headaches that lead to a loss in productivity and profit?

Do you face pressure to keep as little inventory on the shelf as possible? Are you subject to the peaks and valleys of a seasonal business cycle? Do you like to take price discounts of bulk purchases but lack the space needed to store a large amount of product? Do you have too many SKU’s and not enough time to stay organized an up to date with the needs of your production staff? Are international vendor prices enticing but the turnaround time is too long?

Let Weigel & Associates and Mercer Supply help develop a Stock Program that is right for you. They will help you balance the price factors you need to stay competitive while providing a system that will set your mind at ease.

“I don’t have time and too many SKU’s to manage my inventory”- Mercer can create a State of the Art Stock Program where they visit your site based on your production schedule. They will tag and bin each item of your program and set visits based on your schedule to measure and fill your hardware.

“I like International Pricing”- Mercer is established with a wide variety of hardware suppliers both foreign and domestic allowing you access to the best pricing available to meet your needs. They can hold inventory at their central location and distribute at the time right for you.

“We have too many peaks and valleys in productions”- By establishing Minimums and Maximum’s, they can keep track of what items you need. Mercer also accepts blanket orders to get you the best price possible.
