A: The drawing of a deeply recessed part from flat sheet metal stock is done through the flowing of the material in which a sheet metal flat blank is radially drawn into a forming die by the use of a mechanical / hydraulic action press, with each step being done in succession.

A: To help reduce cost, we have an elaborate die library with thousands of standard size die sets which can be utilized depending on the geometry and dimensions of the requested part.

A: Metal Stamping is the process of manufacturing metal parts to a specific design made from stock metal material or can be stamped on a press using punches and dies to form relatively flat parts. Metal sizing, swaging, coining, and cold extrusion are some of the examples of metal stamping techniques.

A: The Deep drawing process provides a consistently higher quality part with surface finishes that mirror the smooth condition and dimensions of the dies. Deep drawing is also very repetitious for long production runs when it comes to holding tight tolerances and variation is only the result of die wear. The higher your annual quantity, the more attractive deep drawing becomes.

A: For deep drawing, material choices are very broad and virtually all commercial metals processed are available in sheet or coil form for deep drawing. Here are some examples of the metal we use: Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Copper, KOVAR®, Nickel and Nickel alloys, Brass, Lead, Inconel, etc.

A: .003″ to .375″  (0.0762 mm to 9.525 mm)

A: With a combination of dies and secondary machining we can provide tolerances up to .0001″ (.00254 mm).

A: We have 41 Computer Numerical Controlled (CNC) machines with capacities of up to 12″ and 3, 4, and 5 axis capabilities, to complete Milling centers.

A: Standard first time buy lead times are dependent upon the tooling requirements, material availability, complexity of part, etc.

A: Yes, we have a separate 20,000 square foot facility / warehouse which stores stock parts and uses JIT / Kanban processes to ship parts as needed to meet your production requirements.

A: Our production runs range from 50 – 100,000* pieces annually.   *Dependent on product specifications.

A: Yes, we have been an ISO certified company since 1994. We are currently certified to ISO 9001:2015. Click here to see our ISO certification

A: We provide parts and components with “Total Capability”, which means the final part delivered on your dock. With a century in business we have built relationships with top-rated service vendors and suppliers that can finish your part to your specifications.
