Choosing a Deep Draw Manufacturing Partner

When choosing a deep draw manufacturer to partner with, it’s important to keep a few critical factors in mind to ensure you get the highest-quality parts possible, at a fair price. Consider the following tips during your search:

  • Manufacturer’s experience. Although deep draw manufacturing has existed for over 140 years, it’s still a complex method, requiring a great deal of expertise. Be sure to partner with a knowledgeable, experienced company that can provide examples of past work and answer specific questions about their technique, quality control program, and quote breakdown.
  • Vertical integration. Look for manufacturers that are vertically integrated, that can offer initial design assistance to lower cost. Design and build the tooling in house and manufacture the initial samples through full production volumes under one roof.
