Deep-Drawn Process

Deep drawing is the perfect process for high-volume manufacturing. It enables companies to achieve components with exceptional repeatability and accuracy at a lower cost compared to other processes – such as turned and machined components.

What is the Deep-Drawing Process?

This deep drawn process is extremely popular amongst manufacturing companies for its high precision capabilities at large volumes. It involves the use of blanks which are manufactured into your specific tool set whilst offering maximum efficiency and cost-effectiveness as a result of the innovative process.

How Our Deep-Drawn Process Works

Starting with a metal blank, the disc of metal cut from a larger sheet is pushed into a cavity around a die, which begins the deep drawn process of drawing the blank into the desired shape. This is completed in gradual steps to ensure an even distribution of the metal across the final shape, which is important for preserving the integrity and strength of the finalised deep-drawn component.

The Benefits of Deep-Drawn Components

The deep-drawing process is ideal for high-volume metal components with batch to batch repeatability where precision is critical. Components manufactured through this deep-drawn process tend to exude qualities of high strength in comparison to their relatively light weight. It’s also perfect for crafting precise cylindrical 3D shapes. Aluminium cans are one example of an item which is typically created through this process, but there are countless shapes which could be crafted through this technology.
