Micro Forms assists large OEM by significantly reducing part cost, and meeting challenging metal stamping requirements, using Design for Manufacturing (DFM) expertise.


OEM customer had a part sourced elsewhere and they needed a significant cost reduction. The part had coined edges, difficult forming, extruded and tapped holes close to bends, minimum thread count and multilayer plating including Gold.


Micro Forms, Inc. applied DFM problem-solving skills coupled with advanced tool design knowledge and experience to address the plating and tooling challenges. The incorporation of intricate forms, extrusion and IN DIE TAPPING overcame the design challenges of the geometry.

Proprietary solutions for the plating conquered the challenges of the multilayer precious metals plating so significantly that this solution alone would have met the customer’s cost reduction target.

Combining both solutions exceeded the goal and created a supplier/customer partnership that has withstood the test of time, creating opportunities to solve other challenges and grow while reducing customer costs.
