The automotive heat shield shown here was designed for use in a turbocharger application. It was made from 321-stainless steel because of its durability, strength, and heat dissipation characteristics.

The finished shield cover component had an outside diameter of 83.44mm, an inside diameter of 22mm, and a height of 23.57mm, and was manufactured to tolerances of ± 0.075mm.

Manufacturing consisted of progressive die stamping on a 200-ton punch press. All parts were laser etched with a bar code that included date of manufacture, serial number, part and revision number, and vendor code. We now produce over 100,000 of these stainless steel heat shields annually. For more information see the table below or contact us.
