Telecommunications Metal Stamping

As an experienced global supplier of miniature to small progressive stamped parts, CEP Technologies Corporation serves many industries. Here, you’ll learn how our stamping expertise benefits the needs of the telecommunications industry, as well as some of the materials used for common telecommunications applications.

Metal Stamping in the Telecommunications Industry

telecommunicationsTelecommunications is a fast-moving industry where devices and equipment are constantly evolving and demand is constant. From consumer products like smartphones and wearables to equipment like switches and routers and everything in between, telecom manufacturers and suppliers like you need a metal stamping partner who understands your needs.

As devices and equipment become smaller and faster, the parts and components that go into them must meet tight tolerances. There is little room for error and that’s why CEP Technologies specializes in progressive die stamping of these tiny, complex parts to your specifications. We can also provide finishing, cleaning, and packaging of finished parts and components.

Benefits of Metal Stamping for Telecommunication

Progressive stamping is a highly automated process, which makes it an excellent choice for medium and large production runs. Our metal stamping capabilities offer these benefits:

  • High-speed, high-volume production. Save money with efficient production on automated presses that can run hundreds of parts per hour.
  • Engineering expertise. Our team includes engineers to review your part prints for manufacturability and to find ways to use less material, fewer steps, or make minor changes that add up to savings and highest quality.
  • In-house die making and maintenance. CEP Technologies will build tooling and dies, and keep them clean and in good working order for the lifetime of your production run. You’ll know we always have them available for your stamping projects, and you can expect consistent quality part after part. Of course, you also have the choice to transfer your existing tooling.

  • One-stop production and finishing. All parts are stamped to your specifications with highest-quality materials. We also offer many finishing processes including plating, polishing, heat treating and anodizing. Finished stampings are cleaned and packaged for shipping to your facility in ready-to-use condition.
  • Precision cleaning. CEP Technologies is able to clean precision stamped parts to specifications, including holding particle sizes to less than 200µm for parts that have pre-plated raw material.
  • Protective tape and reel packaging. Parts remain in ready-to-use condition during shipping and in storage with tape and reel packaging that encapsulates each individual part.  We are also able to design customized packaging depending on your needs.
