Is traditional turning manufacturing still right for your business?

Savings in material costs give deep-drawn components a significant advantage over turned parts, as they create a lot less material waste in the manufacturing process.

There are many advantages of deep-drawing manufacturing your components compared to turned components. The deep drawing process is much more efficient and cost effective than turning because there is significantly less material waste during manufacture.

Deep-drawing allows for high-volume production of components such as deep drawing stainless steel, in a relatively short space of time, compared to the turning process. Deep-drawing is also excellent for batch to batch repeatability of component dimensions, ensuring a high level manufacturing quality.

Initially investment is necessary in the deep-drawing process for tooling and setting the machines up, but for high volumes, this initial investment is offset by the many benefits gained through repeatability and reliability. It’s also much quicker than turning which adds further efficiency for high volumes.

Is deep-drawing more suitable for you than turning? That really depends on the component design, material and volumes you require. The team at H&T Industrial are more than happy to provide a free visibility analysis on any component that is currently being manufactured as a turned part.
