Progressive Die Stamping of Beryllium Copper for the Oil Exploration Industry
Using over half a century of metal forming experience Volkert Precision Technologies, Inc. produced a progressive die copper stamped product for a customer in the oil exploration industry. The part shown below is for power tubes used in detecting ground oil.
We used a Minster press to form these precise beryllium copper stampings. Manufacturing this part requires many secondary operations. Our innovative method consolidated the process into one operation, a solution that brought significant cost savings to our customer. The concise process produced a beryllium copper part measuring 0.714” in diameter and 0.005” thick. Designed according to customer specifications and using CAD drawings, each unit maintained tight tolerances of ± 0.0005”. For quality control, we performed dimensional and visual inspections using our Smart Scope, as well as random product checks. Volkert Precision Technologies, Inc.'s customized processing of progressive die stamping of beryllium copper is a result of metal forming know-how and quality standards application.
