PCC Aerostructures uses draw forming to produce deep shapes to precise customer specifications including nacelle nose lips, bulkheads, frames and structural skins.
We have a variety of draw form presses ranging from 100 Tons to 1,500 Tons. This capacity allows us to draw multiple size parts. A variety of materials can be formed, such as aluminum, stainless steel, inconel and titanium. Our dies are designed and manufactured in house, which gives us control of the entire process.
This process is well suited to cup and pan shaped parts, with deep sides that are difficult to achieve by other forming methods. We have the flexibility to process both small and large runs while remaining competitive in cost.
