Starting with flat stock, Braxton provides the deep-drawn advantage from subminiature to complex parts.
Compared to screw machines, plastic extrusions, tubing and stampings, Braxtons 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 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.
Braxtons proprietary drawing machines are built in-house. Coupled with the advanced in-house carbide die making facilities, Braxtons drawing machines enable them to produce parts in more sizes, and with significantly superior tolerances and finishes, in comparison to competing processes.
