Ajax’ Four-slide component manufacturing offers a number of value-added benefits that standard progressive metal stamping does not. For starters, this metal forming process produces outstanding quality when close tolerances are required on a specific detail. Additionally, we can provide “in-die” thread tapping, electrical contact insertion, rivets, fasteners that will eliminate the need for additional secondary operations.

Our fourslide process can efficiently produce complex wireform and wire-form components at production rates far quicker than CNC wireforming, allowing you to realize cost-savings.

Our Nilson Automatic Four Slide machines provide us with the production capacity to handle your entire strip & wire form requirements. We can handle metal from .10 to .005 thickness and wire diameter of .005 to .250.
