Stainless Steel Pressing

With over 45 years’ experience precision metal engineering, H&T Industrial are well prepared when it comes to manufacturing deep-drawn stainless steel components for your company. Using high-precision technology, H&T Industrial stainless steel into a variety of different products and parts with exceptional precision, repeatability and accuracy.

Our Deep-Drawing Stainless Steel Process

Perfect for high-volume demands, deep-drawn components often prove to be of higher quality for a fraction of the price when compared to alternative methods of manufacturing, such as turned parts. Our methods and carefully maintained machinery will ensure that our customers receive precision stainless steel products as we will settle for nothing less than perfection when manufacturing your toolset.

The process begins with a metal blank, in this case, made from stainless steel and is then shaped using a series of cavities and dies, which lengthens the steel blank into your desired shape. For more information regarding this, please go to our Deep Drawn Process.

The Benefits of Working with Stainless Steel

Deep-drawing stainless steel is ideal; because the material is very strong and resistant to corrosion, making it a reliable material for most industries but it’s also easy to recycle which, in the age of sustainability, is very important.

Of the many different types of steel, stainless steel is considered the best variant for metal pressing. This is because regular and coated stainless steel may deteriorate when exposed to this environment, whereas these steel pressings remain in the original form, due to the material containing a high nickel-alloy content. It is this nickel which makes stainless steel so ductile.

Our expertise and high standards will ensure that your parts will not contain breakages or wrinkles, which can occur when metals are deep drawn at inappropriate speeds and pressure levels. It is vital to always use a trusted company such as H&T Industrial for deep-drawn components. We don’t accept compromises in our supply chain and source the best raw materials available so we believe that you shouldn’t accept compromises either.

Industries which Use Deep-Drawn Stainless Steel Parts

Deep-drawn stainless steel is a prominent material in many industries today and it is often found in aerospace manufacturing, defence, nuclear power, white goods and even power generation.

In addition to stainless steel pressing, H&T Industrial also work with a number of other substrates including:

  • Aluminium
  • Carbon steel
  • Brass
  • Nickel-Silver
  • Galfan
  • Monel
