Metal Stampings for Insert & Injection Molding
Wiegel is world renown for earning a reputable partnership with the insert molding industry. We simplify manufacturing integration between the metal stamping and insert molding and injection molding processes. At Wiegel, we ensure transparent communication with our molding customers and seamless process operations so we can manufacture metal parts and smoothly transition and align manufacturing to continue operations with our plastic molding customers without production delays.
For over 80 years, we've supplied precision metal stampings to insert molders and injection molders across the globe. We provide efficient, quality-driven metal stampings for insert molded components for a variety of market segments utilizing innovative equipment and knowledgeable personnel. We're known for our quick turnaround of multi-million-piece-part programs at the fastest stamping speeds recognized in the metal stamping industry.
We guarantee the consistent delivery of quality metal stampings by incorporating multiple in-die sensors and in-line camera vision systems that inspect critical dimensions of all running parts at high speed and high accuracy. We utilize state-of-the-art Bruderer progressive die high-speed stamping machines that range from 30 to 90 tons and Minster progressive die heavy stamping machines with a tonnage of 100 to 450 tons. Our high-speed stamping machines are capable of running at up to 1500 spm (strokes per minute) with heavy stamping machines running up to 140 spm on conventional presses, up to 250 spm on servo presses and up to 400 spm on hybrid (adjustable stroke) presses. We produce all progressive die tooling in-house and offer supporting value-add services such as prototyping and assembly.
Our stamping approach combines top-of-the-line metal stamping equipment with high-level quality controls to ensure production efficiency and result in cost-effective parts at the highest quality and tightest tolerances.

WIEGEL METAL STAMPING SERVICES FOR THE INSERT & INJECTION MOLDING INDUSTRY
We Prioritize customer satisfaction
At Wiegel, our utmost priority is customer satisfaction with the quality and integrity of our parts. In-die sensors, press monitoring systems, camera vision systems and a dedicated inspection team ensure parts leaving the production line exceed customer expectations.
The press monitoring system tracks production OEE and offers real-time data feedback reporting from every press on the shop floor. Data collected is used to drive efficiency and eliminate downtime so raw material is processed through machines quicker, parts are coming off the presses at accelerated speeds and parts are delivered and in the hands of our customers on time. As an advanced quality measure, multiple in-die sensors and in-line camera vision systems inspect critical dimensions of all running parts at high speed and high accuracy to eliminate error and ensure the consistent delivery of quality parts.
Wiegel invests in cutting-edge technology to drive process efficiencies and produce high-quality and cost-effective product. We operate progressive die metal stamping technology from Minster and Bruderer, the leaders in stamping automation technology and equipment. Our enhanced manufacturing equipment is capable of producing with more precision and accuracy and can achieve complex geometries and tighter tolerances. We also have a dedicated automation department that develops in-die sensor technology and camera vision systems used to incorporate quality assurance through all phases of stamping production. With a committed team, innovative equipment and superior quality control, Wiegel can provide progressive die high-speed stamping and heavy stamping services that turnaround reliable parts on-time and on-budget.
Wiegel is known for building partnerships through a “co-engineered” approach to collaboratively address design and manufacturing challenges alongside our customers. Together, with customer engineering and sourcing teams, we are routinely able to co-develop solutions and bring cost saving ideas to complex projects. It is our goal to optimize efficiency on every project by seamlessly bridging the workflow between the customer and Wiegel. Decades of experience has proven to us that the most cost-effective manufacturing strategies synergize the best engineering practices at both the customer and at Wiegel. We continually strive to be a premier service provider and invaluable resource to each customer by helping to drive efficiencies in all moving parts of a project.
With Zeiss CMMs, OGP smart scopes and dedicated sensor and camera vision system technology to monitor stamping parts in and off production lines, our customers know quality assurance is our number one priority. We are IATF and ISO certified and have a dedicated quality lab and inspection team responsible for maintaining quality control at the greatest extent.Learn More
