A major supplier of solar power framing approached us to manufacture and assemble this U-clamp. Initially, we used progressive stamping to produce this clamp from 0.187″ thick high strength, low alloy steel. Knurled pins were coined into the U-clamp stamping. Apart from fabricating the U-clamp, we also pierced longer sections, which were used along with the U-clamps to assemble completed fold down frames. By designing and building the dies in-house, we ensured cost effectiveness and met custom specifications. A galvanized material finish was provided to this metal clamp.
