The extensive experience gained over the years, and the continuous updating by our technicians, means we can deliver a 360 degree service that covers all phases, from product engineering through to final stamping.
The need to rapidly develop an idea into a winning product requires the input of multiple professional skills.
This is why Idea Stampi is the ideal partner and able to work alongside the customer from day one, assisting in the choice of the best possible solution.
Identifying the most suitable mould construction solution based on production quantities, product life and aesthetic requirements.
Last, but not least, it conducts mould tests in-house and, when requested, also stamping tests.
Idea Stampi's core philosophy is captured in its name - Idea Stampi, we are in fact able to deliver a complete service that starts, if requested, with a co-design phases conducted in collaboration with the customer.
The customer's idea is the root of the development phase, which starts off with the aesthetic aspects, bearing in mind the components that will be made from thermoplastic material; the project aspects are then discussed and assessed, including the choice of the most suitable material to be used; all required modifications are then made to reach the final project and the construction of the various moulds.
The possibility of being able to interact with the Customer's technical department from the very start helps reduce costs and avoids redesign interventions to adapt the model to the stamping requirements.
Design & Engineering
The skills, expertise and experience of our technicians, combined with state-of-the-art technologies (CAD/CAM/CAE) mean we can quickly meet the demands of our customers.
The integrated stamping simulation system VISI Flow allows technicians to engineer the part, accurately performing a high number of important analyses, and defining the best position of the gate, along with the optimisation of thicknesses and conditioning.
The entire production process is performed in-house (from mould construction to testing), which means our engineers have gained extensive experience over the years in designing equipment with the best possible quality-price ratio.
The almost maniacal attention to even the tiniest details, striving to meet all customer specifications, has led us to develop an engineering process that can guarantee maximum reliability.
This gives customers a level of tranquillity and certainty that they have a top-quality performing product that will last over time.
Products designed to provide long-lasting performance, the need to amortize investments, with the largest number of parts possible, requires an exceptionally reliable product, and this is when choosing a supplier of the calibre of Idea Stampi means you play your winning card.
The production department is fitted out with state-of-the-art machinery, and the use of an integrated CAD/CAM/CAE system allows us to process all the parts using the same 3D model, avoiding data transcription or interpretation errors.
Operators often work with electrodes and tools that are so small that they have to use a magnifying glass during processing phases.
To complete the production cycle, Idea Stampi conducts final testing in-house, using presses from 25T to 180T, which will soon be extended to house a further two presses, the first 250T and the second 350T in size.
Where requested by the customer, the samples are supplied complete with Dimensional Test stamping cycle results.
In addition to testing and inspection activities, Idea Stampi can also provide a pre-series service, performing the first production batches and hence optimising the stamping cycle that will then be delivered to the customer.
Customers can opt for a pilot mould when it is necessary to provide rapid feasibility or functionality checks on parts, or before the final mould is built; this is the ideal solution for reducing investment risks when dealing with multiple-impression moulds and, in the meantime, testing the realisation options.
This type of product has several applications even when numbers are so low that minimum investment is required, and realisation using traditional technologies would generate excessively high costs to produce the parts.
Hence therefore the solution of using pilot moulds can be a winning decision (our experience allows us to realise moulds that can be used to stamp quantities of up to a few hundred thousand parts).
