Case Studies


Previous Case Arrow

Proseals was spending valuable time and money with extra steps and an inefficient manufacturing process to create metal ferrules. Crystal designed and built 8 new tools simultaneously per an aggressive timeline, providing Proseals with a more consistent and cost competitive product.

The ferrules were originally manufactured using a CNC process with stage tooling. The Crystal-designed progressive dies incorporated the Rockwell requirement into the stamping process, eliminating a secondary hardening step. The family of tools are the most state- of-the-art progressive dies, incorporating precision-guided stripper systems and in-tool die safety.

Project Example

Rear Ferrules

Tool design and manufacture of a tight tolerance rear stainless steel ferrule stamping.

Project Outcome

Increased production output, lowered costs and improved overall product quality and performance.
