Product Design and Development

As part of our customer-back innovation process, we work in partnership with our customers to design optimal solutions to meet their application.

Our computer simulation tools ensure efficient product and robust process validation. These tools shorten development time and eliminate unnecessary costs.

The prototype area provides rapid and production intent prototypes. Applying lessons learned from the prototype process allows for seamless transition of in-house tool design and production tooling development.

Whether current production parts or a new design, our team is experienced in product design, tooling, materials, and process to optimize cost and product performance.

  • Computer Aided Engineering and Simulation
  • Product and Tool Design
  • Prototyping

Process Design and Validation

All of our tools are developed in our state-of-the-art tool room.

Collaborating with our customer we develop a PFMEA to ensure the required testing and process controls are in place to manufacture high quality products.

Quality is designed around our customer specifications and process capability to ensure safety and performance are never compromised.

Our validation test lab provides the ability to quickly monitor the performance of our customer's products. Test capabilities range from: metallurgical, environmental, fatigue, leak, burst, electrical, static and dynamic.

Based off customer needs, we have the flexibility to provide multiple packaging options to protect products and integrate with customer manufacturing processes.

About Us

Why ITW Drawform

Originating as a family owned business in the early 1970's, Drawform was a pioneer in the air bag industry, being the first to stamp machined-like features with precise tolerances on a deep drawn part.

Our continued growth and success has lead us to become one of the leading manufacturers of precision deep drawn metal stampings and assemblies with five locations worldwide.

As a Division of Illinois Tool Works (ITW) we have the talent, know-how and financial strength to continue to invest in new technologies and capabilities which drive innovative solutions.

Whatever your needs, we have the experience to deliver.
