Hot Stamp

The team at Precision Partners was challenged to remove 8 lbs from a step rail mount bracket and improve the current performance. The solution was found by developing a hot stamp process for the part. Material type changed from GMW2M-ST-S-70G70GU to Usibor 1500. The total mass savings for the project exceeded the 8lb goal and strength improved by over 4x.
