Metal Stamping of Cold Rolled Steel Keyboard Mounting Bracket for the Music Industry

Keyboard Mounting Bracket

An entertainment company approached AmeriStar to manufacture a mounting bracket for a high-end keyboard. We first turret stamped the .100″ thick cold rolled steel. As each sheet came off the turret press, it was deburred. Then the bracket’s inserts were press fit into position. The mounting brackets were then painted with a black powder coat. The hardware was inserted perfectly flush with the part to prevent showing through the customers applied overlay.

Each of the brackets was individually bubble wrapped and taped to ensure the parts were not scratched due to part-to-part contact. Every order included 200 pieces and was completed and shipped to the client’s Chicago location within 4 weeks.
