Forming Operations

The Hines Group operates a broad range of metal stamping capabilities by process: transfer, progressive, and fourslide/multislide presses. Our capabilities include Blanking, Piercing, Bend Forming, Draw Forming, and Coining.

Variety of Materials

In our metal stamping operations, we have experience working with stainless and cold/hot-rolled steel, hardened and tempered steel, aluminum, copper, brass, bronze, Galvaneal, and specialty alloys such as titanium, Inconel, and other ferrous and non-ferrous metals.

Low and High Volume Production

The Hines Group has 250 metal stamping presses ranging from 2 to 600 tons. We ship a half billion parts or more per year. Our production runs vary from a few parts to millions of parts per setup. Our low setup cost and superior operational efficiency makes us an effective short-run and large-run operation.

Our presses are equipped with modern servo feed systems. We incorporate in die sensing and inline vision inspection capabilities, as necessary.

Part Size

Our capabilities range from parts a few millimeters in diameter to heavy brackets several feet in length. We produce parts barely visible to the naked eye to large parts for automobiles and industrial apparatus.


Our ability to produce the precision stampings to match your need to accelerate products to market is supported by our rapid estimating, engineering, part development, materials acquisition, and production readiness.


Our application engineers' mission is to serve you. They'll share their expertise with you to improve manufacturability, lower part cost, reduce material consumption, improve your environmental footprint, and improve part quality and consistency.

Secondary Operations

To provide you with cost-effective solutions, we have a significant capability in high-volume, high-speed part cleaning, deburring, and tumbling services. We routinely ship parts that require heat-treating, plating, coating and painting. As you require, we assemble and package parts for shipping to you or your distributors and customers.

By optimizing your part design and manufacturing specification, we improve production efficiency, improve your time to market, and reduce your component cost.

Tool Transfer ("Takeover") Programs

The Hines Group is expert at helping you out-source your in-house stamping operations. We have successfully moved several large and small in-house stamping operations to our facility.

We run your "factory within a factory" to continue your tradition of excellent stamped metal products. When combined with our extremely competitive labor cost, focused production management, and dedicated support staff and systems, we liberate you from the investment, headache, and inefficiencies of in-house stamping operations.

For you, it is a chance to reduce your investment, eliminate your operational headaches, redeploy labor, and consolidate your purchasing efforts (and vendors).
