Custom Deep Drawing Services
Build To Print Deep Drawing
We use contract manufacturing to build highly customized, proprietary customer designed parts. We can deep draw large or small quantities, whether it is a one time part or repeat business. With in-house metal finishing, machining, and welding capabilities, TMS can deliver a ready to integrate welded sub-assembly. TMS offers pre-defined options for fittings, windows, brackets and much more.
The free use of TMS owned stock tooling.
TMS may have excess deep draw tooling available for customer use. At TMS, we invest heavily in our own tooling can produce shapes that are very close to the designed dimensions. Sometimes, the design can be altered slightly to avoid an engineering charge. Sometimes, a re-cut charge can be offered when the tool is no longer active and can be re-purposed. If we do not have the tooling to fit your needs, our machine shop can design a custom tool to fit your parts.
In a hurry? We may have the deep drawn part for you!
TMS flanged cups are deep drawn, providing you with a seamless stainless steel part that can be used for motor shrounds, enclosures, cups, lids, storage containers and more. The elimination of seam welds reduces the issues common with welded containers like leaks and corrosion. TMS can customize your deep drawn cup in-house, or work with your fabricator of choice. Common markets for deep drawing are: food manufacturing, hospitality, architecture and automotive industries.
Toledo Metal Spinning Company has designed and built the necessary tooling to manufacture several different sizes of metal domes offering various metal thicknesses and metal types. TMS utilitizes a unique one-piece flow manufacturing process to produce metal domes with very little throughput time and extremely high quality. This translates into quick delivery times and competitive pricing for customers.
Turnkey in-house tool & die services for custom tooling & DFMA Support
With DFMA Support you will reduce part cost, assembly time and increase reliability. Place an order for an assembly with us and we’ll collaborate with your design team to perform design for manufacturing and assembly (DFMA) reviews to streamline your assembly to reduce cost, improve quality, minimize inventory and time to replenish stock.
Before releasing a large volume, you want to make sure your part is going to work for you. With TMS prototyping, you can use lower cost metal spinning options to ensure the reliability of your product.
Prototyping to higher volume production quantity capabilities.
Typical Deep Drawn Materials
Standard materials we use for deep drawing are shown below. Have something else in mind? Let us know by sending us a request for quote. Our sales estimators are ready to work with you to get exactly the part you are looking for!
|Stainless Steel||304||Good||Lowest cost of high quality deep drawing stainless steel material. The high nickel content allows for good deep draw working.|
|Stainless Steel||304 DDQ||Excellent||DDQ stands for deep draw quality. 304 DDQ is similar to stainless steel 304 but with more nickel added to the alloy to further improve the ability to deep draw. When extensive secondary working of the material is to occur, this material is ideal.|
|Stainless Steel||316||Good||More corrosion resistant than 304 grade due to the addition of molybdenum with the same higher levels of nickel, thus allowing for it to be an excellent deep drawing stainless steel.|
|Stainless Steel||410||Low||400 series, generally lower cost stainless steel than 300 series since there is no nickel, is not ideal for extremely deep parts since the lack of nickel reduces stainless steels deep draw ability. The lower amount of alloying elements also reduces the material's resistance to corrosion and ability to weld.|
|Stainless Steel||430||Low||430 is similar to 410 with little less strength. Like 410, material is readily available and is less expensive than 300 series stainless steel.|
|Inconel||625||Good||This nickel based alloy as compared to most nickel based alloys has good drawing properties, but low to stainless steels and steels. Since Inconel 625 strain hardens quickly, multiple stress relieves and draw operations are required as the ratio of the diameter to the depth of the part increases.|
|Inconel||718||Low||This nickel based alloy can be formed but has less deep draw ability than 625 Inconel. The lower ability means more stress relieve operations would be required which would lead to a more expensive part costs than 625.|
|Copper||CDA 655||Good||This 97% Copper 3% Silicon Bronze draw forms well and has good strength. (UTS 92 ksi, Yield 55 ksi, %E 22) This can be used for marine applications and for cooking kettles.|
|1008-1020||Excellent||Low alloy steels generally draw very well when cold rolled and produce a good quality finish that is normally easy to powder coat after forming and minimal washing.|
|Carbon Steels||1008-1020||Excellent||Like cold rolled, hot rolled low carbon alloys form well. The hot rolling process tends to leave a surface that is not as smooth so when lower cost is priority over surface quality, hot rolled steel is a better choice.|
|Aluminum||1100-O||Excellent||Low strength alloy, nearly 100% aluminum. Draws very well.|
|Aluminum||3003-O||Excellent||Higher strength than 1100-O. 3003 Aluminum is stain-hardened when cold worked during the deep draw process.|
|Aluminum||6061-O||Excellent||6061-O aluminum is easily form in the O-temper due to its low mechanical properties. Once the final shape is obtained, the material can be solution heat-treated and aged. T4 is naturally age, T6 artificially aged.|
