DC Ross receives recognition for technological capability in recent Industrial Research (IRL) media release
Tuesday 1 July, 2008DC Ross engineers have designed and manufactured a number of very sophisticated fineblanking press tools for slitting / cutting revolutionary high temperature superconducting (HTS) cable in a production environment. IRL's high temperature superconducting team has come up with a process to turn fragile HTS wire into robust cable and open the way for the wider application of HTS technology in industry If you require high quality production tooling or precision stamped me... read more »
Tuesday 1 July, 2008Ongoing development of the fine blank process has always been a strength that DC Ross is proud of. Our most recent research and development work has resulted in a higher quality fine blanked product by reduction of die roll and die break on demanding parts with critical working features such as teeth. The focus of the development work has mainly been on understanding metal flows and punch loadings when the stamping takes place. ... read more »
Tuesday 1 July, 2008DC Ross has developed new and very efficient air blast ejection technology for ejecting components and slugs from automated production press tooling DC Ross has a policy of continuous improvement across every facet of its fineblanking precision metal stamping production facility. One area that has always had a bearing on how many components can be produced per minute by our Schmid production presses is how fast fineblanked parts and slugs (waste material) can be cleanly ej... read more »
Sunday 1 June, 2008Industrial Research have taken delivery of a second DC Ross designed and built fineblanking press tool for shearing the superconductor material they have developed. The tooling clearance tolerances combined with the internal component dimensions really pushed the boundaries of precision engineering. ... read more »
Tuesday 1 January, 2008DC Ross has received a number of enquiries from customers who wish to manufacture quality components where the annual volumes of the component are insufficient to justify the manufacture of a fine blank tool. To satisfy our customers' needs DC Ross has developed a cost efficient tooling system that substantially reduces tooling cost whilst maintaining fine blank edge conditions. This tooling option is suitable for smaller sized components up to 6mm thick. ... read more »
Saturday 1 December, 2007DC Ross ramps up production of a new fine blanked automotive brake system component for supply to a US based automotive O.E.M. client. Initially 300,000 units will be supplied per annum with volume expected to increase. The components will be fine blanked in New Zealand, heat treated in DC Ross subsidiary Metal Treatment Services, AU and shipped to the US via Australia. Over the last few months both our toolmaking and precision metal stamping divisions have received a noti... read more »
