ZERO ARINC Cans are Used as air transport avionics equipment interfaces, all sizes are manufactured to meet Aeronautical Radio, Inc. (ARINC) specifications. ARINC deep drawn, housings provide you with a seamless aluminum and/or stainless steel part that can be used for motor shrouds, enclosures, lids, containers and more. The seamless ZERO Method eliminates weld issues like leaks and corrosiveness in environments.

ZERO can customize your can with holes, piercings, fittings, markings, welding and a variety of finishes. ZERO trims to your specified height at no charge, and can customize your can in-house, or work with your fabricator of choice. Our deep drawn cans can also be paired with a matching cover(s). Common markets for deep drawn cans are: aeronautics, broadcast/ communications, electronics, military, defense, unmanned vehicles, food and hospitality, and architecture.

N/A The benefits start with a single sheet of metal. ZERO uses only the highest quality aerospace aluminum alloys. Each piece is precision sheared and formed using the ZERO method of deep drawing, then trimmed and tempered to your specification.

Benefits of ZERO's Deep Drawing

  • Created from a single sheet of metal
  • Cans are 100% seamless
  • Large quantities of deep drawn products can be easily manufactured
  • Uniform material thickness can be achieved
  • Over 30,000 Tools
  • No tooling or set up cost on stock sizes
  • Free trimming to height specification
  • Low tooling cost for custom jobs
  • In-house modification services (to adapt a standard can to special requirements)
  • Quick turn-around, including next-day shipping if required
  • 5 axis laser capabilities for precision modifications and prototyping

Bow Tolerances

N/A Bowing, or "oil canning", may occur in the base or any side of a deep drawn can, particularly when multiple drawing operations are performed. The following tolerances for this bow condition are additive to basic dimensional tolerance.

Maximum Bow Tolerances for Up to 6 Inch Basic Size

N/A 0.03 in

Maximum Bow Tolerances for 6 to 12 Inch Basic Size

N/A 0.06 in

Maximum Bow Tolerances for Over 12 Inch Basic Size

N/A 0.12 in

Note for Bow Tolerances

N/A For 1 - The bow condition will be checked by placing a straight edge across the tangent points of the corner radii of the side or bottom of the box, and measuring the maximum deviation from the straight edge to the surface of the metal. This applies to either a concave or convex condition.

For 2 - The basic size refers to the box width or length. The maximum allowable bow will be determined by the larger of the two dimensions for any given side, and by the smaller of the two dimensions for the bottom.


N/A When ordering give part number and height desired in inches. Example: HDD5042-3.00 = ARINC style enclosure (3.175" W x 3.175" L x 3.00" H).
