Progressive Die Stamping

of Beryllium Copper for the Oil Exploration Industry

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. For more details, see the table below or contact us directly.

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 Keyence, as well as random product checks.
