High Speed Lamination Stamping


With 40 Minster high speed lamination presses ranging in size up to 300 tons, Orchid has a very broad range of stamping capabilities to suit various part configurations and sizes, large and small.


Installation of a 450 ton Minster PM4 will be completed in early 2018. For even larger production requirements, Orchid recently installed a tandem line that combines two presses together, a 300 ton Minster press and a 250 ton Minster press tied together for total tonnage of 550 tons and bed length of 144 inches.


Orchid supplies hundreds of millions of electrical steel lamination stampings annually as either loose laminations or bonded or interlocked together as complete rotor, stator and transformer cores.
