Q: What is Deep Drawing?

A: Deep drawing is a compression-tension metal forming process in which a sheet metal flat blank is radially drawn into a forming die.

 

Q: How does the process work?

A: The drawing of a deeply recessed part from flat sheet metal stock is done through the flowing of the material in which a sheet metal flat blank is radially drawn into a forming die by the use of a mechanical / hydraulic action press, done in graduated steps.

 

Q: With a die set required for each drawing operation, do I have to pay for a die set for each one?

A: To help reduce cost, we have an elaborate die library with thousands of standard size die sets which can be utilized depending on the geometry and dimensions of the part.
