Precision drawn metal stampings for critical applications 

Why Use Us!


Headly Manufacturing is a leading contract manufacturer of precision drawn metal stamping to the automotive industry as well as others. Our main products include metal cases for bonded piston seals, wheel bearing seals, shaft seals, and lip seals. We stamp many tight tolerance parts for sensors used in transmissions, engines, gearboxes, steering gear, and ABS systems. We supply various industries including automotive, industrial, aerospace and agriculture.

Headly's uses stretch forming to manufacture precision drawn metal stampings in both progressive and transfer dies. Our unique stretch forming process is better suited for high volume, tight tolerance, drawn metal stampings with finer surface finishes than a conventional drawing process. Our proprietary stretch forming process provides many benefits over conventional drawing including:

  • Greater dimensional accuracy 
  • Increased strength 
  • Reduced part weight 
  • Improved surface finish with lower surface friction
  • Less spring-back 
  • Increased surface hardness 
  • Increased wear resistance 

Our unique system starts with building robust tooling that can stretch and iron the material at high speeds without damaging the tooling. We develop the right surface finish in the tools and apply the correct coatings and lubricants to improve the form-ability of the products. Along with controlling the raw material inputs to ensure that we are receiving the same quality of material from initial submission, through the life of  production. This leads to a very robust manufacturing process. Which ensures that you receive quality parts on time, every time, at very competitive prices. 

Methodologies we use to drive improvements are:
Six Sigma
Project Management
Lean Manufacturing
