Metal Stamping Inspection
At Wiegel, quality is guaranteed because inspection is built into everything we do. At the start of every program, we conduct a feasibility review on the part to ensure manufacturability. To secure quality control before large-scale production begins, we implement a run-at-rate study on the first run of a program. This allows our quality and production management teams to closely monitor controls and ensure the job will run smoothly. Once testing checks out and the first batch of perfect parts are produced, the program can continue through the production process.
Before a part even reaches the formal inspection stage, the tolerances across various dimensions are analyzed by numerous sensor and vision technologies. As parts move off the presses, our camera vision systems perform an automated inspection of stamped parts to ensure 100% quality with zero defects. Machine operators are also performing in-process inspection checks during active production.
Our dedicated inspection and quality lab utilizes Optical Gaging Products (OGP) and Keyence vision systems for final auditing and enhanced quality assurance checks.
We are IATF:16949 and ISO:14001 certified and have a dedicated inspection team who utilizes superior quality control equipment. All of our automated quality control equipment including OGP smart scopes, in-line sensors and in-line camera vision systems are pre-programed with part specifications so we can inspect parts quickly, prevent defects, and ensure 100% quality.

Industries We Serve
It’s our mission to offer premier metal stamping and metal forming solutions to the most challenging and innovative engineering product designs. We combine advanced metal stamping production and tooling equipment, superior quality controls, seamless automation and production processes and a knowledgeable and experienced team to serve an array of market segments.
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
