Design and Development Support

Our new product development engineers have a wealth of experience in automotive prototyping and understand your requirements for developing a robust, cost-effective, repeatable, and reliable part. We have worked with many of the top Tier 1 and OEM in the automotive industry for more than 30 years.

In addition to the general requirements of product design and prototyping, we can assist you with your specific automotive prototyping requirements.

  • We understand your need to meet milestones for a model-year project, as well as the ability to move quickly from prototype to production.
  • Our quality team is involved in the prototyping stage to ensure that critical dimensions and requirements are considered early on for faster PPAP later in production.

Contact us to learn how you can benefit from a service designed with process efficiency through reduced steps, reduced cost, an accelerated time to market, and improved product performance. We look forward to introducing you to our award-winning team of skilled toolmakers, process and manufacturing engineers.

"Our goal is to help our customers develop concepts into a robust manufacturing program to meet and exceed demanding automotive requirements." - Virgil DeLay, VP, Diemasters Division

AUTOMOTIVE STAMPING

SMALL AND MINIATURE METAL STAMPED COMPONENTS

Weiss-Aug started as a stamping company over 50 years ago.
Our focus on complex, high precision, and miniature high-speed stamping shines through in our automotive projects. Utilizing high-speed Bruderer presses that range from 20 to 90 tons, capable of speeds up to 1600 strokes per minute, and an in-line 100% vision system for monitoring critical features combined with fully automated assembly, we can guarantee completely defect-free products that meet and exceed quality standards. From stainless steel to copper and gold plated materials, we can supply stampings loose or reeled for your application.

MEDIUM-SIZE AUTOMOTIVE METAL STAMPINGS AND ASSEMBLIES

For larger stampings, such as automotive electric vehicle busbar applications, we offer stamping capabilities from 60 to 350 Tons. We stamp copper, steel, and other materials (up to 6mm or .25 inches) exclusively on best-in-class Minster stamping presses. If your automotive metal part requires assembly, our robotic welding cells with automated leak testing and other secondary operations can provide you with a full assembly for your needs.

With a fleet of 50+ presses in the US and Mexico, we provide millions of quality metal stampings to North American automotive companies every day.

AUTOMOTIVE INSERT MOLDING

Specializing in high-volume applications, our automotive injection molding, and automotive insert molding is perfect for the high quality and precision needs of this industry. We work with a variety of resins and utilize both horizontal and vertical machines, as well as reel-to-reel and micro-molding. Force testing, electrical testing, and hard gauges allow us to evaluate the functionality of all products. We can offer you automotive molding services in our US locations or from our Monterrey plant in Mexico.
