What is Deep Draw?

Deep Draw

Deep drawing manufacturing technology is defined as the stretching of sheet metal stock, commonly referred to as a blank, around a plug. The edges of the metal blank are restrained by rings and the plug is deep drawn into a top die cavity to achieve the end shape that is desired. There are many shapes that can be made through deep drawing and stamping such as cups, pans, cylinders, domes & hemispheres, as well as irregular shaped products.

Deep drawing manufacturing is one capability utilized to form parts to your specific application.

Compared to screw machines, plastic extrusions, tubing and stampings, deep-drawing techniques offer many benefits:

Drawing is a process of cold forming a flat precut metal blank into a hollow vessel without excessive wrinkling, thinning, or fracturing. The various forms produced may be cylindrical or box shaped, with straight or tapered sides or a combination of straight, tapered, and curved sides. The parts may vary from 1/4" (6mm) diameter parts or smaller to aircraft or automotive parts large enough to require mechanical handling equipment.
