Deep Drawn Cans & Bins
Deep drawing is used to produce seamless metal enclosures such as cans, boxes, and bottles, as well as irregular shaped products. Deep drawing requires tooling, including a punch, die, and blank holder. A punch is pressed against a material blank and the material is drawn through the die to form the desired shape.
Deep drawing can achieve up to 43% reduction on a metal blank, and multiple successive deep draws can be used to achieve part size or shape requirements. A variety of metals can be deep drawn, including aluminum, stainless steel, aluminized steel, cold rolled steel, brass, bronze, cupro nickel, nickel, and titanium.
ARINC Cans - Square Aluminum Enclosures for Aircraft Electronic Instrumentation
ARINC (Aeronautical Radio, Incorporated) was chartered by the US Government (Federal Radio Commission, now Federal Communications Commission) to coordinate non-governmental radio communications. ARINC developed standards for interchangeable trays and boxes used to enclose standard line-replaceable units (like radios) in aircraft (known as ARINC electronics enclosures, or ARIN cans). ARINC square avionics instrumentation mounts are designed to be light weight, and to enable the rapid exchange of on board electronics components without complex fasteners, connectors, or the need for special tools or test equipment.
Amalco delivers aluminum deep drawn aircraft instrument cases and electronics enclosures in both standard and special (custom) designs and sizes, meeting dimensional requirements for ARINC Specification Number 408A . The deep drawn process ensures exact tolerances, meeting ARINC requirements and your specifications.
Amalco provides complete in-house facilities for fabrication of ARINC cans to your specifications, made from 0.050" thick 3003-0 Aluminum (6061 optional). Piercing, attachments, and other secondary operations are performed in-house, saving you paperwork and procurement processing time (single authorization) while ensuring strict quality control from raw material through finished product. Brazed assemblies, dip-brazing and finishing (including alodine or anodize and paint) are also performed in-house at Amalco's Mountainside, New Jersey facility. Contact Amalco for your ARINC cans and mounts.
