Deep Drawing26th August, 2014
Deep drawing is a forming process where a sheet metal blank is progressively formed into a three dimensional shape by the mechanical action of a punch drawing the material into a forming die. This process is considered more efficient than machining because there is significantly less wastage of metal.
The process is considered “deep drawing if the depth of the part produced is more than it’s diameter or width. Deep drawing is achieved in multiple progressive draws. Deep drawing can produce intricate, precise, symmetrical and asymmetrical parts that are usually stronger than the base material used to product them due to the work hardening that happens as part of the drawing process.
National Manufacturing Co., Inc. works with various materials like Cold rolled steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, Monel®, titanium, Hastelloy®, Kovar®, nickel, Inconel®, Mumetal®, tantalum and others for producing durable, high-quality deep drawn stampings.
