With our experienced engineering team and a commitment to state-of-the-art production, we delivered a truck accessory product for an Indiana trucking industry customer. The project highlighted here utilized a comprehensive application of our capabilities for producing a durable product in a timely manner.

The truck accessory outlined by the customer was a retractable step assembly used for facilitating access to a truck trailer and incorporated numerous parts of varying sizes and materials. We selected high definition plasma cutting, power punch press forming, drilling, welding, and CNC milling and welding as our fabrication processes, as they offered fast and accurate production.

Subsequent priming and powder coating followed. The 16” x 27” x 29” part was made within a ±1/32” tolerance on carbon steel sheet and plate. Quality testing in the form of dimensional inspection and visual inspection rounded out the production phase.

Under a two week delivery window a medium volume order of these step assemblies was delivered to the customer. The product they received was durable, cost-effective, and well within performance requirements.

Our precision metal stamping continues to be a reliable production partner for a wide variety of precision made products. See how your manufacturing needs can be satisfied with our services and contact us today.
