Introduction

Since 1972 Campbell Inc. has specialize in stamping press repair and rebuilding. The name Campbell is synonymous with stamping press repair and rebuilding through out the industry.  We have a strong reputation for quality, efficiency and productivity in the supply of repair and replacement parts and for general metal stamping presses repair and rebuilding.  We work on small OBI presses, I-let, transfer and draw presses, high speed, straight side, eccentric geared, link and knuckle presses from small 30 ton models to 3000 ton automotive transfer presses. We will perform stamping press repair and rebuilding work on most all makes and models of presses both domestically build and off shore manufactured equipment as well as obsolete equipment. 

To compete in today’s world market, presses need to be kept with tight tolerances and take advantage of the latest in technology to optimize performance and minimize down time. Campbell Inc. is the leader in metal stamping press repair and rebuilding and in helping you keep your presses in optimal running condition.

Stamping Press: Disassembly & Inspection

Rebuilt metal stamping presses or Remanufactured stamping presses can offer like-new quality and productivity at a lower cost than new equipment. Working hand and hand with our technical group we can aid your company in deciding on what services are needed to meet your manufacturing requirements and goals. 

A metal stamping press repair or rebuilding project begins with the disassembly, inspection and engineering of the parts and components. Parts are checked for wear, cracks and dimensional integrity. During this process you are informed of any findings that may impact the project or cause a change in scope or cost.

Repair Metal Stamping Parts: Welding

Cracked or broken press crankshafts can be repaired as well as most all other press parts.  We can perform weld repairs on both cast iron, cast steel or fabricated steel parts.  Cracks are cut out and then welded or brazed. Welding is a very technical discipline and successful welding involves proper preparation and preheat, use of the correct welding procedures and a thorough stress relieving for success.  We at Campbell Inc. have refined our steps and procedures over the years to provide the highest quality press repair welding services in the industry. 

Repair Metal Stamping Parts: Machining

Most all stamping press parts that are welded will require some machining to bring them back to size and square.  Our machining operations can handle the challenges of machining parts that have been welded.  we also manufacture alot of new stamping press parts or replacment parts for presses.  These components will be made in a variety of manners depending on original design, delivery time and cost considerations.  New stamping press parts will be made from forgings, steel plate burnouts, steel or iron castings and fabrications depending on design and function.  Parts are machined to customer specifications or engineered sizes to meet the required clearances and tolerances of their mating parts.

Metal Stamping Press Rebuilding: Assembly & Testing

When rebuilding metal stamping presses all repaired parts will be checked for size and quality before assembly begins.  Sub assemblies will be fit to engineered tolerances before installing them in the frame for final fitting and making adjustments for proper running clearance and operation.  Rebuilt metal stamping presses will be test run in our plant before final customer run off and acceptance.   
Metal stamping press rebuilding will typically include installing new controls, lube systems, pneumatics and some times include installing new clutch & brake assemblies.  Often, rebuilding an older metal stamping press will provide a better return on investment than purchasing a newer press because of the heavier construction of the old press and its related durability.  A good heavy older stamping press rebuilt can returned the press to OEM running specifications and then be modernized with all the latest in controls and operating systems and provide the customer with a great value for for their investment. 
 

Metal Stamping Press: Preventative & Predictive Maintenance Inspections

Lean manufacturing includes lean maintenance and lean maintenance for stamping presses involves a strong stamping press preventative and predictive maintenance program.  Campbell, Inc. can provide metal stamping press preventative maintenance inspections that will keep you informed of your presses condition.  Our skilled engineers and field service technicians have the experience to perform a one time, annual, semi annual or quarterly preventative maintenance inspections.   If you are looking to set up your own in house stamping press preventative maintenance inspections we can help by providing training and assistance.
