We supply custom, precision metal stamping to a wide variety of industry sectors. Our service includes design consultation, raw material choice, and manufacture. We provide precision metal stamping for the following industries:

  • medical
  • telecom
  • automotive
  • electronics

Precision Metal Pressings

We are a producer of precision metal pressings. We use our expertise to complete multi-out dies with constant speeds of up to 1,200 strokes per minute. Using our Bruderer presses, we have the capacity to produce up to 650 million precision metal pressings per month.

Stamped Metal Parts

In the creation of stamped metal parts, we have developed relationships with industry leading producers of non-ferrous alloys. We work with our customers through out the design and build process of stamped metal parts. When possible, we look to  identify “cost-down” solutions before a die is even built.

Stamped Metal Parts

Metal Stamping / Metal Pressing

Following our metal stamping and pressing processes, we also offer crop and form tooling to assist in your assembly and production.

When undertaking metal pressing and stamping, we are also acutely aware of particular EU directives on lead reduction as they apply to post electroplating. We are also able to offer advice on alternatives to leaded solder alloys.

Progression Tooling

We take great pride in our progession tooling and tool design services. By using AutoCAD, as well as wire erosion technology, we can achieve an efficient progression in the design and development of our tool-making.

Lead times in our progression tooling have been significantly reduced by our ability to choose only the relevant data for a specific tooling task.

Progression Tooling

Stamping

Our range of Stamping Presses can offer small close pitch components with material thicknesses in the range of 10 microns thick foil to more heavy duty single piece Stampings upto 2mm thick. Packaging format consists of Reeled Parts, Piece Parts, Palletised Parts and Tape and Reel. 

Batten & Allen Ltd pride ourselves on designing and manufacturing our own ancillary equipment incorporating lean techniques while taking into account customer and quality requirements. We have the ability to serve all market sectors with various custom stamped components supplied from bespoke tooling including:

  • Lead Frames
  • Jewellery
  • Compliant Pins
  • IDC’s
  • Connectors
  • Pressed Metal Parts
  • Compliant Pins
  • Laminations

Leadframes

We manufacture of edge clip leadframes for hybrid, thick film and PCB. We stock a wide variiety of standard pattern leadframes (open tooling) for immediate dispatch. We can supply quantities from one reel.

As an experienced leadframe provider, we supply major companies throughout Europe, USA and the Far East.

Leadframes

Plating

As part of our policy of maximum self-sufficiency, we design and build our own high-speed electroplating plating lines. Our Engineers can help our customers with selection of plating finishes while monitoring and controlling plating solutions and thickness of plating to ensure we minimize waste and meet our customer and environmental requirements regarding plating.

Our Lead-Free plating is RoHS Compliant. We can plate onto substrates of Stainless Steel, Copper Alloys, Beryllium Copper and Ferrous materials with the following finishes:

  • Nickel
  • Copper
  • Tin
  • Tin/Lead
  • Silver
  • Gold

Tool Design & Manufacture

Maximizing output is key to remaining competitive so Tooling Design can range from single to 32 impression high speed progression tools. By utilizing the benefits of CAD Design with Wire Erosion Technology, we can achieve efficient progression between stages of production in the design and development of our Tool Design & Manufacture . 

We have eight work stations available for Tool Design & Manufacture using AutoCAD, 4 with Solid Works. We can accept Solidworks, AutoCAD .dwg - .dxf, Inventor.iges & .step drawing file formats.

Tool Design & Manufacture

Surface Mount Leadframes

Batten & Allen Ltd produce a range of surface mount Leadframes, also known as Edge Clip Connectors. Batten & Allen Ltd design and manufacture a range of standard metal leadframe connectors including SML, SIL and DIL.

We provide a wide range of edge clip connectors or Leadframes:

Prototypes

Low cost, flexible prototype design with fast delivery helps us prove new components before full production. Batten & Allen offer a fast low cost Prototyping service to ease these worries. We can offer a complete service which includes:

  • Wire eroded blanks
  • Etched blanks
  • Tool room hand formed parts
  • Single impression stamped parts from modular tooling

At this stage our experienced engineers can offer Prototype design and material selection ideas to develop a component that is functional and cost effective, whether you require service for wire eroded blanks, etched blanks, tool room hand formed parts or Single impression stamped parts from modular tooling.

Wire Erosion

Our annual investment in the latest Wire Erosion technology keeps us ahead of the competition. We have a state of the art wire erosion facility, helping us keep the press tooling and manufacture of precision stamped parts under one roof for our customers. This helps us to turn around volume metal pressings faster at a better value for our customers. 

Within our Wire Erosion Facility we have 5 machines including a CUT 1000 machine working to an accuracy of less than 1 micron. All all machines 24 hours 7 days per week under lights out conditions.
