Compared to screw machines, plastic extrusions, tubing and stampings, Braxton's deep-drawing techniques offer many benefits:

  • Starting with flat stock 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 drawing 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 micro-miniature 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 our advanced in-house carbide die making facilities, our drawing machines enable us to produce parts in more sizes, and with significantly superior tolerances and finishes, in comparison to competing processes.
