Advantages of Deep Drawing Larger Parts

Download Article

Deep-draw stamping is well-known as a cost-effective method for producing complex parts at higher volumes. In the right application, deep drawing is a superior alternative solution to part fabrication when tight specifications and consistent parts are required. These benefits can even extend to larger or more complex parts, depending on individual specifications.

Deep-Draw Stamping & Annealing

Deep-draw stamping forms metal into geometries where the depth equals or exceeds the diameter. The technique involves forming large cylindrical or other simple geometric shapes by using tooling that is optimized to work with the material type. More complex results are possible depending on the procedure used. The resulting shape can then be manipulated through annealing, which applies heat to reshape a material. 

Deep drawing is efficient and cost-effective. When combined with annealing, those benefits carry over to even larger products with complex geometries by altering the metal’s physical and chemical properties, making it easier to manipulate the shape or stretch of the material. This pairing results in precise, seamless shapes produced with minimum labor and material costs.
