What is Deep Drawing?

Deep drawing is forming process for sheet metal, in which a sheet metal blank is stretched to create a hollow part with a uniform wall thickness. It typically creates hollow parts, such as cylinders, boxes, and
cups.

Deep drawing can produce parts with tight tolerances and a high degree of precision, and it is well-suited for creating parts with a significant depth-to-diameter ratio.

Where is it used?

Deep drawing parts can be used in a wide range of industries,
including:

  •   Construction: Bending components for construction projects such as roofing and siding
  •   Automotive: Bending sheet metal for use in body parts such as doors, hoods, and fenders
  •   Aerospace: Bending sheet metal for use in the manufacturing of fuselage, doors, and fenders
  •   Advertising: Bending sheet metal for signage and advertising, including signs and billboards
  •   Food processing: Bending sheet metal for beverages, kitchen equipment
  •   Transportation: Bending sheet metal parts for cars, trains, buses, and aircraft
  •   Art: Bending sheet metal for use in building cladding

How is it fabricated?

Deep drawing is a specialized process to create hollow parts with a uniform wall thickness. The process typically involves a stamping press, a specialized die, and a punch. The steps and equipment used may vary depending on the material type, the sheet metal size, the desired shapes, and the production volume. The process may require a progressive die, a series of die stations that perform different stages of the deep drawing operation.

  •   Blank preparation: It involves cutting the sheet metal to the correct blank’s size and shape. It might also require lubricating and stretching the blank over a punch to ensure the metal is aligned correctly and does not wrinkle or crack during the drawing process.

  •   Drawing: After cutting the blank, it is placed in the die, and the die presses into the die. This process forms the blank into the desired shape. Drawing is done in one stroke, which allows for a high degree of precision and consistency.

  •   Trimming: The deep drawing operation leaves the workpiece with an excess of material. The trimming operation removes burrs and sharp angles and ensures the part has the correct dimensions. After the trimming, the part may undergo additional finishing processes such as painting, plating, or anodizing.
