Accurate Forming utilizes notching as a secondary operation on our deep drawn products. A shearing or punching process is used in a press, so as to cut vertically down and perpendicular to the surface, working from the edge of a work piece. Notching is a low-cost process, particularly for its low tooling costs with a small range of standard punches. Notches are added to Accurate Forming’s deep drawn product to mate pieces together during an assembly.
Below are examples of deep drawn product that Accurate Forming has added notching to the product.
