Through deep drawn technology, ITW Drawn Metals replaced a solid machining of 304 Stainless Steel with a two-piece design that incorporates a brass shell and stainless insert. The assembly is completed in press and saved 28 cents per part.
Airbag Diffuser

Working with the advanced engineering team of a major airbag manufacturer, ITW Drawn Metals was able to help redesign a heavy walled machined part. This previously machined part, now manufactured as a deep drawn stamping, is nearly 50 percent complete off the press - wall thinning included.

Once stamped and machined due to strict tolerances, ITW Drawn Metals redesigned the part to be completely deep drawn. A true success in terms of quality and performance on the assembly line, ITW Drawn Metals’ process equated to several million dollars over the life of the program.
The Stator Sleeve
The Stator Sleeve
A stator sleeve is a high volume part that required ID and OD machining to meet dimensional tolerances. The previous supplier also demanded surcharge for fallout. ITW Drawn Metals’ state of the art tooling met ID tolerances in press, resulting in dimensional integrity for less fallout in customer assembly. This cost effective method saved the customer 32 percent.
