Automotive Solutions: Custom Metal Stamping

Today’s automotive OEMs and aftermarket manufacturers use custom miniature and small metal stampings in many applications. But have you ever wondered exactly where they are in a vehicle? Here are some examples:

  • engine knock sensors
  • transmission sensors
  • vehicle communication systems
  • EMI/RFI shields
  • throttle components
  • key fobs
  • door locks
  • fuel pump
  • fuse panel
  • infotainment system
  • ignition system
  • antennas
