Since our establishment in 1959, Manor Tool & Manufacturing Company has gained renown as a leading metal stamping company. Our expert team specializes in metal stamping and fabrication – several of our core specialties include bending, punching, forming, and deep-drawn stamping services. We meet our construction tool industry customers’ unique requirements from prototyping to the production stage.
Metal Stamping & Fabrication Services for Construction Tools
Metal stamping is the process of forming sheet metal into specifically requested designs using a stamping die or multiple dies to pierce, cut, and ultimately shape the metal workpiece. Meanwhile, metal fabrication services comprise a variety of metalworking processes, including drawing, forging, punching, extrusion, drilling, and more.
In addition to our in-house metal stamping and fabrication services, Manor Tool can source secondary plating and powder coating services, which construction tools often require. We have experience providing services to help produce a wide range of construction tools, including nailers, fasteners, staplers, and others.
Metal Stamping & Fabrication for Construction Tools
The experts at Manor Tool use metal stamping and fabrication solutions to create a variety of tools for use in the construction industry.
Some of the specific tools we help manufacture include:
- Hand tools. These may include pliers, wrenches, struck or hammered tools, striking tools, files, cutters, vises, snips, and screwdrivers, among others.
- Power tools. These include tools that run on electric motors and other power sources, with applications such as drilling, sanding, shaping, cutting, and more.
- Pneumatic tools. Also known as air tools, pneumatic tools are among the many tools we help produce, including pneumatic drills.
- Any other tools that require any number or specific form of metal stamped parts.
Additionally, our team has plenty of experience stamping and fabricating metal parts for nail guns.
Materials for Construction Tools
Based on the needs of each application, we offer a selection of metal materials, including:
- Aluminum. The superior formability, high strength-to-weight ratio, electrical and thermal conductivity, and softness make aluminum a popular option for construction tools.
- Beryllium copper. This is a corrosion-resistant, malleable, and strong copper alloy that contains between 0.5% and 3% beryllium content.
- Brass. Brass offers high workability, durability, and hardness, with excellent tarnishing and corrosion resistance that make it ideal for many metal fabrication applications.
- Carbon steel. This metal contains iron and carbon and offers great solderability, cost-effectiveness, and high strength.
- Copper. Copper’s malleability, softness, durability, conductivity, corrosion resistance, and ductility make it suitable for many construction tools.
- Additional alloys and superalloys. It’s possible to alloy metals like copper and aluminum with other types of metals to enhance certain properties.
- Stainless steel. These ferrous alloys consist of multiple alloys, including molybdenum, chromium, and nickel to reap the benefits of each element. The result is a metal that features high strength, corrosion resistance, temperature resistance, and hardness.
The most popular material choice for construction tools is steel, such as hot or cold rolled steel. Hot rolling entails fabricating steel using high temperatures of over 1700˚F, which allows manufacturers to form, shape, and produce steel in larger sizes. Cold rolled steel is similar to hot rolled steel, only it undergoes additional processing through room-temperature cooling and annealing or temper rolling. While hot rolled steel is more malleable, tough, and ductile, cold rolled steel is harder, stronger, and more suitable for precise applications.
