Tooling - Ironing out the inconsistencies

Tooling - Ironing out the inconsistencies


Customer approached us with a Lobeform that was suffering from metal wrinkling causing airflow inconsistencies. In addition, the tooling was worn out and no longer producing with any accuracy.


We began by using our Deep Draw expertise to correct the airflow issue by smoothing out the part. We then went to work on developing the flexible tools required to meet their expected initial volume numbers while being robust enough to handle future increases.


  • A new part smoothed out to correct for wrinkling issues
  • Developed new, robust tools to be used over the life of the program
  • Worked with customer to improve overall cost-efficiency of production
