For 65 years Jay Manufacturing has been a leader in custom metal stamping.
We have the experience and knowledge customers expect from a quality
metal parts provider. Our capabilities include abrasive water jet cutting,
deep draw or the metal stamping of parts in materials such as:
We have provided stamped metal parts for all industries, world-wide.

Deep drawing manufacturing technology is defined as the stretching
of sheet metal stock, commonly referred to as a blank, around a plug.
The edges of the metal blank are restrained by rings and the plug is
deep drawn into a top die cavity to achieve the end shape that is desired.
There are many shapes that can be made through deep drawing and stamping
such as cups, pans, cylinders, domes & hemispheres, as well as
irregular shaped products.
The deep drawn process is ideal for making parts such as wear-rings
and ecussions out of stainless steel for the hot tub industry. There
are many other applications for this process as well
Metal stamping involves forming a piece of metal with a dedicated
piece of tooling and stamping the piece through a mechanical or hydraulic
press. During the metal stamping operation, the upper die is attached
to the ram and the lower die is attached to the stationary bolster.
As the press is activated, the ram moves vertically towards the bolster
to form the piece of metal over the lower die. Metal stamping presses
can perform a diverse range of operations such as blanking, piercing,
forming and drawing as well as combinations of these processes.
The Metal stamping process is ideal for making parts for valves, lighting,
aircraft, aerospace and inserts for molded rubber.
Abrasive Water Jet Cutting
Water jet cutting is a process used to cut materials using a jet
of pressurized water as high 55,000 pounds per square inch (psi). Often,
the water is mixed with an abrasive like garnet that enables more materials
to be cut cleanly to close tolerances, squarely and with a good edge
finish. Water jets are capable of cutting many industrial materials
including stainless steel, Inconel, titanium, aluminum, tool steel,
ceramics, granite, and armor plate.
Ideal for making custom parts for the entertainment industry and designing
new parts, our abrasive water jet cutters a valuable resource to many
customers. This process is good for short runs and decorative artwork
required in the lighting industry.
Jay Manufacturing is more than just a metal stamping house. We can form
and finish metal to meet your exact specifications.
Formed features are created by bending material with a form punch
and die. Varying degrees of accuracy and repeatability are obtained
depending on the metal forming method applied.
Standard Shape Tools:
Using devices such as press brakes, Jay Manufacturing can use standard
shape tools to create bends. The selection of tools is often limited
to standard bend radii and angles, thus limiting the feature sizes
and shapes of the final product.
Custom Shape Tools:
By creating metal forming punches and dies with custom forming
features, Jay Manufacturing can replicate the production metal forming
process. The methods with which the tools are guided and actuated vary
from small hand presses to standard press brakes. Jay Manufacturing
has developed standardized forming modules that easily accept custom
punch and dies solely for forming custom products.
