Rotor Clip devotes extensive resources to enhance the stamping process

Rotor Clip has a dedicated in-house tool and die facility and a large, expert tooling staff. We design and build many of the modifications that produce stamped retaining rings with high efficiency and accuracy. Whether it’s building a machine accessory to reduce scrap or improve feeding accuracy, or integrating stacking and packaging right onto the presses to suit automated assembly, Rotor Clip devotes extensive resources to enhance the stamping process.
