Since our founding in 1940, Hudson Technologies has been providing top-quality metal stamping and deep drawn stamping services for a range of applications.
In addition to our extensive catalog of high-quality standard products, Hudson Technologies also offers design, prototyping, and full-scale manufacturing services for custom components. These custom capabilities allow us to work on a range of products — deep drawn metal enclosures, headers, and metal diaphragms, as well as highly specialized projects. Working closely with clients throughout every step of custom manufacturing projects, we aim to form lasting partnerships through real collaboration.
Over the years, our team has developed deep expertise in the design and manufacture of standard products, and our core capabilities, detailed below, allow us to approach all custom projects with the same attention to detail and quality. Our technical support team works closely with clients throughout all stages of custom projects to ensure specific needs and specifications are met.
Equipment and Processes
We house an extensive fleet of state-of-the-art equipment in our 115,000-square-foot manufacturing facility. Hudson Technologies makes use of several types of presses, including double action mechanical, hydraulic, open back inclinable, pneumatic, servo (plus CNC cushion), and transfer deep drawing, with tonnages ranging from 1 to 500 tons.
Our team can perform standard stamping, shallow drawn stamping, and deep drawn stamping processes, as well as progressive die stamping, rubber-to-metal, and transfer tool processes. We can accommodate order sizes from single prototypes to high-volume orders of up to 5,000,000 pieces. Close collaboration and consistent communication with clients’ teams help ensure optimal quality and allows any necessary changes to made in real time.
Materials, Capabilities, and Tolerances
Hudson Technologies can produce parts of any shape — from standard round, square, and rectangular to complex and asymmetrical geometries, in dimensions from 1/8 inch (3.1 mm) to 12 inches (305 mm) in diameter and up to 12 inches long, using material between 0.002 inch (0.05 mm) and 0.187 inch (4.75 mm) thick. We can produce metal diaphragms, flat or corrugated, in diameters ranging from 0.2 inch (5.08 mm) to 18 inches (457.2 mm) and in thicknesses from 0.001 inch (0.025 mm) to 0.018 inch (0.457 mm).
Our expert team has experience working with a wide variety of metals, including:
- Cold rolled steel
- Stainless steels 200 to 400
- HY-MU 80, and other specialty shielding alloys
- Cupro nickel
- Nickel silver
For all of these materials, we can maintain tolerances as low as +/– 0.002 inch (0.05 mm) for custom cases and +/- 0.0005 inch (0.0127 mm) for precision headers, and draw corner radii as small as 0.005 inch (0.127 mm).
Secondary / Finishing Processes
Hudson Technologies is also proud to offer an unmatched range of secondary and finishing processes to help simplify your supply chain, enhance parts quality, and keep project costs manageable.
Our cleaning and edge-smoothing services include environmentally friendly aqueous degreasing, deburring, heat treating, and passivation; surface treatments include anodizing, polishing, painting, powder coating, bead blasting, and plating; modification services include piercing, extruding, bulging, coining, tapping, and machining; and welding capabilities include spot welding, TIG welding, laser welding, and brazing. We also offer a number of assembly services, and can work with PEM® fasteners, stud insertions, and standoff insertions.
Our team offers extensive design support backed by a stringent quality assurance program. Close collaboration with clients ensures product designs meet every application requirement and are best-suited for the environment in which they will be used.
Design support services include engineering design assistance, finite element analysis (FEA), product design simulation, and metal forming simulation. Our quality assurance program relies on optic, laser, and touch probe equipment from Smart Scope and employs both hot- and cold-mount metallurgical analysis.
As one of the nation’s leading deep drawn metal stampings manufacturers, Hudson Technologies is proud to offer unparalleled custom services for clients across a range of industries. To learn more about our custom capabilities, or to discuss an upcoming project in detail, contact us today.
