Rapid prototyping at H T Brigham adds value for customers
The benefits of 3D printing have been widely reported; fast, low-cost and kind to the environment. This rapid prototyping allows working concepts to be ruled in or out more quickly, speeding up the development process and reducing the project lead time as a whole.
Celebrating 70 Years of Presswork Success
Birmingham metal pressing manufacturer, H T Brigham celebrates 70 years in business this year. The company was established in 1947 by Hugh Terrence Brigham who, with just £80 start-up capital, operated a single hand-press from a garage shed in Birmingham, delivering components locally using his motorcycle and sidecar. He was paid £9 9s 8d on the completion of his first order.
Working with both ferrous and non-ferrous materials, we can manufacture metal pressings from mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, copper and brass to suit the application and environment.
Aluminium is a popular choice for the manufacture of metal pressings where an aesthetically pleasing finish is required. This, combined with high strength and light weight qualities, makes it ideal for the manufacture of components which need to be both durable and to look good. Aluminium is also 100% recyclable, resistant to corrosion and has the ability to conduct heat and electricity.

Cleaning, polishing or plating service available
If component needs a finishing operation, H T Brigham offer a wide range of options to meet your requirements
A range of post-production services are also available
Stainless steel is anti-corrosive and resistant even in moisture-rich environments. Where regular or coated steel will deteriorate, stainless steel pressings will retain their cosmetic good looks and performance qualities, making them the ideal choice for applications where appearance is a factor, such as vehicle interiors, white goods and electricals. Stainless steel pressings rarely need any post production finishing or coating, often making them a cost effective option.
If your component does need a finishing operation, H T Brigham can offer a comprehensive range of options to meet your requirements. Please talk to us if your metal pressings require cleaning, polishing or plating.
A range of post-production services are also available, including mechanical assembly, resistance welding, drilling and tapping. This ensures that your components perform to optimal levels according to your specifications.
