LCS uses compound and progressive tooling technologies to stamp and form metal brackets. Bracket features holding tolerance ranges of +/- 0.001″ to 0.010″ are normal with capabilities to hold +/- 0.0005″ when needed. Brackets are often made from steel, aluminum, stainless, copper, titanium, and other special alloys.

LCS manufactures U, Z, and L brackets as well as custom specialty brackets. Secondary processes such as degreasing, deburring, finishing, and plating are also available.
