Why a Deep Drawn Part Is Better

Deep drawing refers to the use of high-powered presses to form sheet metal into three-dimensional shapes by utilizing the mechanical action of a die forming the metal around a punch.  It can be used to provide very precise and intricate components, which has made it very attractive for very complicated components.

Many different types of materials can be used in the deep drawing process, including stainless steel, cold rolled steel, low carbon steel, brass, aluminum, HSLA, copper and others. Some result in better results than others, but generally, deep drawing will work well with any of them.

Advantages of a Deep Drawn Part

A deep drawn part will provide several benefits to the machine it is put in, compared to parts that were fabricated using any of the other processes that are alternatives to deep drawing.

One major advantage that a deep drawn part will have is its strength, which will serve to boost the durability of whatever product it is used in. The uncommon hardness comes from the deep drawing process itself, meaning it cannot be replicated using other processes. The process of using the die to shape the sheet metal gives it an increased strength that is more than what the metal had in its original form.

Cost Efficiency in Deep Drawing

Deep drawing also provides benefits for manufacturers in the form of cost savings. There are various factors that can influence the final price of producing a deep drawn part, including the size of the component, the thickness of the required material, the number of features the component will have, and the location of those features. When you are producing a mass quantity of components, no other forming process can provide the same cost savings as you would get using deep drawing.
