PMP has a diverse range of transfer press sizes. The deep draw capabilities are listed below.
All materials must possess the chemical and mechanical properties that facilitate deep drawing and forming. All materials are cold rolled sheet, rerolled to the required gage and slit to the required width. A common reference to deep draw capable material is “DDQ” or deep draw quality.
Deep Draw Metals & Parts
We continue to expand our deep draw material selection based on our customers’ needs and our goal of gaining new market share. We are selectively working with 300 and 400 series stainless steel for food and pharmaceutical processing. We also work with titanium grades 1, 2, and 3 for medical device components. Each of these materials has different properties that require a “fine-tuning” of the deep drawn process to avoid irregularities and to achieve the proper geometry of the finished part. The PMP technical team is made up of engineers and tool makers who have the experience and expertise to customize the deep drawn settings (i.e. pressure, press speeds, clearances and tool lubrication) based on the material’s characteristics.
We consistently work with a gage tolerance of .0005, which provides a deep draw forming consistency and less dimensional variation. The trend from our deep draw customers is lighter and smaller parts and very thin gages.
