Metal Piercing

A process used to provide holes with tight tolerances for metal components. Piercing is more productive than drilling and offers a cleaner cut. Accurate Forming utilizes piercing to add holes to the sides, bottoms or tops of the deep drawn product we manufacture. The piercing process is accomplished by using a punch and die which is capable of providing more than one (1) hole per operation. These holes are used for many applications which include switches, connections, lights (LED’s), mating assembly openings and more. Accurate Forming performs it’s piercing as a secondary operation which is typically customized to the deep drawn part which is being pierced.

Below is an example of a deep drawn product that Accurate Forming has added pierced holes to the product.
