Why Partner with Buckeye Shapeform?

Defense and aerospace industry leaders looking to increase innovation should partner with Buckeye Shapeform for precision enclosures and other deep draw products.

  • Innovation – We are able to continually innovate with an experienced design team, the latest emerging design and fabrication technologies, and a high level of engineering expertise.
  • Performance – We offer the best quality and durability, the tightest of tolerances, and endless shapes and sizes, as well as economy in multiple test, measurement and technology applications.
  • Customization – From our diverse off-the-shelf enclosure line to our ability to design and create any type of metal or plastic component, we can deliver what you need—when you need it.

What Deep Draw Can Produce

Whether you need enclosures for sensitive electronics or mission-critical equipment, precision is always our goal. Deep draw technology has a number of advantages over other metal fabrication techniques to ensure product performance that is both reliable and accurate. Deep draw metal forming has the ability to:

  • Produce a variety of complex shapes, such as cylindrical shells and tubes
  • Manufacture at high volumes and high speeds, without reductions in quality
  • Create multiple wall thicknesses and multiple diameters in its final products
“For our rocket launchers, we needed a supplier with expertise in modern fabrication techniques. We needed a team that could give us a perfect inner tube every time, without a welded seam, that could withstand the rugged, deadly arena of the battlefield.”

Read our military/aerospace case study to find out how Buckeye Shapeform worked with a maker of rocket launchers to provide seamless inner tubes that could withstand the battlefield.

The Deep Draw Advantage: Accuracy, Precision, and Cost

By using our in-house deep draw technology, we are able to lower material costs and product weight, all while maintaining the highest standards needed for the most complex missions and applications.

  • Improved Accuracy: Deep draw metal forming creates highly calibrated products, with tight tolerances within thousandths of an inch.
  • More Precise Finishes: Eliminate secondary operations with a sealable finish on products of 63 microinches or less. This creates a direct application sealing of gaskets during final assembly.
  • Reduced Materials Used: Deep draw technology reduces the use of raw materials, which in turn minimizes operations and reduces the time and money needed to assemble separate product components. All of this results in significant savings.

Your Product, Your Choice of Metal

Deep draw products undergo innovative integrity-testing procedures, but they are virtually flawless—with no seams or welds—and can be created from a variety of metals, including:

  • Aluminum
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Mild (cold rolled) steel
  • Precious metals
  • Any ductile material

Aluminum is preferred for its uniform grain structure, strength, ability to absorb vibration, and higher-quality parts that are less brittle. Aluminum also delivers three times the effective product as steel. The final aluminum product is strong and ductile, but also reduces vibration.
