Caran Precision will be exhibiting at booth #106 at the 36th Annual Conference on Explosives and Blasting Technique (www.isee.org/FPconference.htm) in Orlando, FL on February 7-10, 2010. On display will be a variety of precision metal stampings, deep drawn components, and laser welded assemblies that cover the many industries Caran currently supplies. Our sales engineers at our booth are diligent to listen to your requirements, review your drawings, and explain how to best suit your needs to our processes.
About Caran Precision:
For over 40 years Caran Precision Engineering and Manufacturing (www.caranprecision.net) has been a leader in the support and manufacture of components for the aerospace, ordnance, ballistic and explosive industries. It has excelled in tight tolerance production, thin wall and concentricity control. Our precursor was one of the founders of Sierra Bullets, later Spiveco, Inc and currently Berger Bullets. Additionally, we were involved in a number of other ballistic, ordnance and pyrotechnic activities. Caran Precision continues this progression of specialized production by supplying percussion cups, booster caps, and igniter tubes, primer and detonator shells.
Caran designs and manufactures all required tooling in house. Out quality control system is the highest in the industry. If you have requirements for stamped or drawn metal parts used in the explosives industries, we probably have already made it, have made something like it or can certainly develop a part to your requirements no matter how tight the tolerance. The controlled explosives industries that we serve include but are not limited to: Aerospace, Oil & Gas, Mining, Fire Retardant, Canopy Ejection, & Missiles.

Metal stamping, when applied to fuel cell applications, provides substantial cost advantages to ceramics and other conventional materials. In addition, metal is less fragile to work with than graphite or ceramics and is much more conducive to major production scale up.
Our sales engineers at our booth are diligent to listen to your requirements, review your drawings, and explain how to best suit your needs to our processes. We have stamping presses that range from 5 to 1,000 tons with laser welding and in-house heat treating available. Our secondary processes also include but are not limited to machining, coining, deburring, cleaning, treating, testing, engineering and numerous others. We have an area dedicated to tool and die building with. We have experience with common and exotic metals like stainless steel, aluminum, copper, inconel, zirconium, brass as well as many other metals.

For over 40 years Caran Precision Engineering and Manufacturing has broken the mold of what a stamping facility could be and what it can do. From the beginning we set out to meet the same rigid specifications and tolerances of machined parts with quality precision stamping, metal finishing and assembly.
Today, Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies know Caran Precision as a premier certified to ISO standards manufacturer and primary supplier of precision stampings. We consistently meet and exceed our customer's exact specifications and performance requirements. Our reputation as an international leader in precision design has been earned the same way our metal-stamped components are produced: by stretching the limits.
Caran's state-of-the-art tooling design system provides enhanced design and support to its in-house manufacturing of progressive and transfer tooling.
We can take any idea for a precision part from inspiration to production. Whether dies, tools or fixtures, the Caran Precision design department offers complete design assistance, engineering and technical support for each stage of the process. Our highly skilled staff, which includes some of our industry's most respected engineers, designers and researchers, some at PhD-level, allows us to provide a full range of services, including research and development of new products and technologies.
The Caran Precision Continuous Improvement Program allows us to replicate machined, impacted and forged prototypes with high volume, complex stampings that meet the most demanding tolerances, timelines and budgets.
With over 150 different presses with capabilities of 5 to 1,000 tons, we can produce components in material thicknesses of .005 to .150 inches. Our Minster 300 and 500-ton straight side, E-2 heavy stampers, and other straight side presses, give us unmatched versatility in producing larger, intricately detailed stampings with close tolerances in high volume. For secondary operation and subassembly, our 22 to 75-ton OBI presses can accommodate high volume runs with meticulous quality. We can form numerous shapes from a variety of materials, such as stainless steel, copper, carbon steel, zirconium, inconel, nickel and aluminum.
The promise of Caran precision is clear: whatever anyone can do, we can do it better. We can produce components that match the tightest tolerances and budgets, we can turn around high volume orders within the shortest of lead times, and we can come up with new ideas or processes that can solve the most difficult problems.
But no matter what we have achieved to date - such as our success in conquering the manufacturing complexities of the laser-welded nuclear reactor fuel rod spacer - nothing is as important as that one component you must have produced.
Contact us for more information and discover how we can stretch the limits for you.
The Caran Quality Improvement Program has the approval of the world's most demanding companies. Caran Precision is certified to ISO standards and meets the requirements of Nuclear 10CFR50, Appendix B and NQA-1. We use Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP), control plans, capability and product validation studies along with lean manufacturing and Kanban systems to meet every challenging requirement and exact specification. As part of our relentless drive to reach a zero defect level we also employ highly disciplined Six Sigma methodologies.
Our Quality Improvement program is all-encompassing; skilled inspectors carefully check every step of the manufacturing process, statistical process control implementation uses computer monitoring to maintain optimum precision and exact tolerances, and image analysis equipment is used to inspect and test production from prototype to final product.
Whether the job is extremely difficult or requires high volume production, Caran consistently comes closest to perfection.
Caran Precision is a global supplier to the power industries with particular emphasis on the nuclear and fuel cell areas, calling for novel and cost effective applications. The company has a strong materials engineering design group, laser welding and assembly strengths and is a leader in cost reduction through improved product design and assembly applications. In 2007 at the Hannover Messe Caran Precision will be showing novel costs effective stamping applications with particular emphasis on bi-polar plates.

By consolidating multiple components into single stamped parts, we have been instrumental in replacing expensive impacted and machined parts with precision stamped components, resulting in many thousands of production dollars saved.
And, our customers realize this reduced component cost with absolutely no sacrifice in quality.
