American Iron Works (AIW) located in Yukon, OK, is a leading supplier in the high-pressure hose and pipe restraint business. They design, test, and manufacture products capable of restraining hoses and pipes from 100 PSI to 50,000 PSI.
This means heavy-duty steel brackets and other rugged materials. It also means part branding and identification that requires a tough, rugged, and repeatable marking solution.
That is why Steve Beeson, President of AIW, reached out to his stamp supplier, Young Bros. Stamp Works, Inc., for some help.
AIW needed a high-quality, high-tonnage steel stamp for their 90-ton stamping press that delivered a legible mark, including both text and a branding logo, for their A36 dual grade steel brackets.
Mr. Beeson says, “we were very impressed by Durable’s design and engineering team. They were able to create a stamping die built in such a way that the tonnage required to make a deep impression was significantly reduced without affecting the quality of the finished mark. We needed a deep mark because the next steps in the manufacturing process are to shot blast the part and then add a powder coat layer.”
“Durable’s team is fantastic to work with. They are all very professional and know how to ask the right questions to get the part designed and built right the first time. They are easy to work with and we are very impressed with the quality of the stamps we have purchased,” states Mr. Beeson.
