Compared to turning, extrusions, tubing, moulding and stamping, Braxtons deep-drawing techniques offer many benefits:
Beginning with a metal sheet and ending with a tubular part, this process minimizes material waste.
Superior part-to-part and batch-to-batch repeatability are assured.
Slitting, flaring and hole punching, normally considered secondary operations, can be performed on the deep-draw machine.
Intricate designs not previously possible can be produced.
Raw material is work-hardened during the drawing process, therefore eliminating the need for secondary heat treating on most finished parts.
Starting stock can be clad or pre-plated with gold prior to the deep-draw process, guaranteeing even coverage of gold on both the OD & ID of microminiature tubes with or without a closed end as small as 0.005″ (0.13mm) ID. This process also eliminates the threat of residual acid trapped in the parts, a type of contamination that is commonly found in the barrel plating process.
Braxton’s proprietary drawing machines are built in-house. Coupled with the advanced in-house carbide die-making facilities, Braxton’s drawing machines enable them to produce parts in more sizes, and with significantly superior tolerances and finishes, in comparison to competing processes.
