Deep Drawing Process Used for Industry Applications
Deep drawing can be used for a variety of applications across a range of manufacturing industries, each offering our customers many benefits over other fabrication methods. The deep draw process holds out cost savings in less material consumption, reduced fabrication costs to arrive at a finished part, and less dimensional variability for the millions of parts we produce for our customers each year.
Industries That Use Deep Drawing Processes
The deep draw process is suitable for the manufacturing of components utilized in multiple industries. Deep draw stamping can accommodate complex designs and a comprehensive range of materials can be used. Deep drawn metal components are used in numerous commercial sectors including sealing technologies, medical devices, needle and ball bearings, industrial and appliance controls, security hardware and automotive.
Deep Draw Appliance Controls Components
Deep draw stamping control components serve as precision nozzles, sensor housings, and thermostatic applications. Designed for high-heat and high-pressure environments and for corrosion resistance, 300 series stainless steel is frequently the material of choice for deep draw forming.
Deep Draw Bearings Components
High carbon steels and pre-coated steels are the primary materials used in deep draw stamping for cups and housings for needle roller bearing applications. Very close tolerances are held to maintain high performance and minimal wear. Precise surface finishes, another essential tolerance, are rendered through the deep draw forming process.
Deep Draw Sealing Technology Components
Deep draw metal inserts provide formed shapes to facilitate the molding process, eliminating machining as a secondary operation off the transfer press. Deep draw sealing components require heat treatment for hardness, special lubricants for the transfer press, and precision cleaning and coatings to ensure the bonding process. All these value-added features are provided through PMP’s supply chain.
