Superior engineering capabilities combined with advanced automation & streamlined efficient manufacturing.

Advanced Engineering

Our engineering expertise enables us to design for material optimization, manufacturability and assembly. With a team of well-educated, experienced design and manufacturing engineers and the most up-to-date engineering software, NSI is able to exceed all of our customers’ needs.

  • Most advanced CAD/CAM/CAE software used on six workstations
  • Verify formability and optimize tooling using incremental forming simulations
  • Utilize FEA to optimize part design and weld pattern before any prototypes are built

From small, simple brackets to complex, thick gauge components, NSI is capable of manufacturing all types of stampings. Our comprehensive list of available equipment includes a newly installed 330 ton AIDA Servo press, with an additional 1650 ton AIDA Servo press scheduled to begin production in 2018.

  • Transfer Presses up to 2000 tons
  • Automatic Presses from 110 to 1500 tons
  • Large Bed Secondary Presses up to 1000 tons

Our state-of-the-art robotic weld shop incorporates automated welding cells including single, dual, and quad articulated robots with computerized controls. Metrology technologies include, “in process” resistance welding verification, and “in-line” sensor verification of dimensions and features. This is done by a series of monitors and features built into the weld fixtures.

Other Capabilities

NSI has developed additional capabilities above and beyond stamping and welding to satisfy its customers need for full-service part design and manufacturing. These capabilities include:

Fiber Laser Tube Cutting

E-Coat & Powder Coat

NSI has preferred customer relationships with Springco Metal Coatings in Cleveland, Ohio, Crown Coatings in Livonia, Michigan and Android Industries in Flint, Michigan.

NSI also installed brand new, state-of-the-art e-coat and powder coat lines at its satellite production facility in Queretaro, Mexico.

Fixtures & Tooling

Our tooling capabilities include the design and construction of original fixtures and the repair of existing tools. Whether it is a one-piece replacement or new multi-tool programs, we have the expertise to serve our clients’ needs.

NSI integrates industry standard components along with our custom components, to reduce cost and maintain fixtures throughout the production life. NSI ensures quality by utilizing fully-automated clamping and built-in part presence sensors for each component of an assembly.

Award-Winning Project Management

Equally important to delivering high quality parts is managing our customers’ needs from initial concept to program completion. As recognized by its customers, NSI thrives in situations where reliable and comprehensive project management is necessary to ensure success.
