Four Slide / Multislide Stamping

Four slide or multislide stamping is the process of forming metal material into its desired form using multiple slides that work together to bend or stamp the material in alternating directions based on programmed functions. The number of possible bend directions is determined by the number of slides on the machine.


  • Knowledgable engineers with a variety of industry experience
  • Many of our machines allow for stamping in up to 14 directions
  • Variety of customization
  • Precise EDM wire cutting used in tooling
  • Engineering assistance available
  • Optional value-added services (prototyping, kitting, assembly, and more)

Why Choose Multislide Technology?

Four slide technology is used to produce several types of parts including wireforms, rings, clips, flat springs, leaf springs, clamps, and brackets. It allows for a great variety in customization for unique configurations. As a custom manufacturer, MW Components produces custom parts including custom metal stampings for various applications and industries.We use a variety of machinery to perform these functions including standard three and four slide machines as well as several rotary machines with up to 14 bending slides. Our vast selection of machinery ensures flexibility with the types of custom parts we can produce and industries we can service.
