Brandauer is splitting microns at its facility in Birmingham and to put that into perspective, a single hair comprises 40 microns. It is this kind of precision that brings Brandauer’s capabilities in the design and manufacture of pressed metal components to the fore.
Everything stamped by Brandauer fits in the palm of your hand and is often fundamental to the operation of products, devices and vehicles used all over the world, every single day.
Brandauer is one of the largest contract presswork and metal stamping companies in Europe, offering the complete range of services required for the supply of precision stamped metal components: from prototyping, design and in-house tool production (or a specialist tool transfer service) through to high-quality manufacturing and logistics.
Since Brandauer was founded in the 1800s, it has evolved into a world-class engineering company, specialising in the manufacture of high-speed precision metal components, in difficult materials, for a wide range of industry sectors.
Tiny, unseen components but crucial in the role that they play. They need to be exact in form and if there is one word which has always applied to Brandauer’s components it is precision.
Typical component types are listed below and specific product capabilities are segmented into separate pages, including Electrical Steel Laminations, EloPin® and Cable Clips.
Brandauer stamp components from seemingly impossible requirements using difficult materials, and it is this capability which has differentiated Brandauer over the years. From solving the problem of ensuring that the flanges on the vacuum vessels of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider remain tightly in place during operations, to delivering a component with the right flexibility to be bent in place on a medical facemask – No concept or material is a barrier to Brandauer’s ability to offer the right solution.
Most varieties of metals can be accommodated down to 0.05mm thickness, including titanium, stainless steel, aluminum and complex copper-based alloys such as beryllium copper.
Brandauer is a specialist in working with difficult materials and hard metals, operating at tolerances as low as one micron to achieve outstanding and ingenious manufacturing solutions.
Brandauer offer reel to reel, selective plating, metal finishing, de-burring, polishing, degreasing and heat treatment. Brandauer’s experience in dealing with complex materials and coatings, as well as finishing processes, can help support any and every client’s own product development process.
Global, direct from mill sourcing of raw materials, including beryllium copper, stainless steel and special alloys, offers economies of scale in purchasing, driving down costs for the customer.
Whatever the precision stamping requirement, and whatever raw material or post-stamping treatments are required, Brandauer hold close to 160 years’ engineering experience.
Typically, Brandauer will stamp components to the most precise requirements in the following materials:
