A metal forming company
with engineering DNA
At first glance, the engineering capabilities among manufacturing companies may seem largely the same. So, what sets Triangle Manufacturing apart? The difference is in our DNA. Our company was built by engineers, grown by engineers and is led by engineers today. While other metal forming companies begin their work when an order is placed, Triangle Manufacturing Company takes a different approach.
Our engineering begins when we first hear about a project or see a product. (Sometimes, that’s long before our work with a company officially begins). Few things thrill us more than the opportunity to put our engineering minds in motion and improve a product or project. At Triangle Manufacturing, we want to be an extension of your engineering department, bringing the extensive knowledge and capabilities that we use to take our customers’ projects to the next level.
Engineering the structure
for a faster turnaround on new product designs
A primary difference in our approach: Our engineering and manufacturing teams are all located under the same roof. This structure allows for an ongoing flow of communication, iteration, and revisions as projects evolve. Our one-of-a-kind structure pairs tool-making with maintenance, to efficiently and effectively identify design gaps that may affect production times. The result: Turnaround on new product designs is far faster than the industry norm.
While die stamping is our core capability, we offer a wide range of manufacturing processes and services, including:
Smoother. Quieter. More efficient.
Are you looking for smoother motion in a ball bearing? Do you need a quieter design for your application? Do you need to install an assembly more efficiently? We tackle customer challenges like these daily, tapping into decades of motion engineering experience. Our vast experience designing motion components for markets from ocean to desert and everything in between gives our engineering team a deep well of knowledge from which to create smoother, quieter, more efficient bearings and motion assemblies.
Here’s how one customer put Triangle Manufacturing’s engineering capabilities to work:
- Our customer was developing a completely new product that included four linkages for one application.
- Our engineers saw an opportunity to reduce the required pieces from four to two.
- So, they developed a design model to show how the product would work.
The customer accepted the solution, reducing required SKUs, decreasing setup time and saving per-piece costs.
With engineering in our DNA, we see opportunities instead of projects. That’s how we bring lasting value to our customers.
The proof is in
To ensure we’re continuously developing our engineering prowess, we challenge our team to extend their reach from products to production. Beyond building designs for bearings and linkages, our team engineers the automation used to build our products. That means we know our capabilities inside and out –because they were created by our team, for our team.
We use this intimate knowledge to constantly optimize our production equipment, making it better and faster with each iteration. Our software development team manages in-house systems, including our CRM, MRP, and EDI. Because we don’t need to rely on a third-party to engineer, build or maintain our production environment, we can respond faster when new projects emerge.
A lot of engineers know CAD and 3D prototyping. Our well of knowledge runs deeper. Our products are made with a variety of materials:
*(stainless, galvanized, cold-rolled, hot-rolled, HSLA)
Over the decades, we’ve learned more than the properties of each material. We’ve learned how each material responds when challenged by a new bend, shape, design or a change in the elements. We know what it can and can’t do. And, if we have a new theory, we have the capability to test it in our in-house lab.
