Deep draw stampings have virtually become ubiquitous in the component fabrication industries, but one might still wonder how exactly they are made, especially considering their somewhat confusing name. The term “deep drawing” is derived from the industry standard that when the length of any stamped part is up to or exceeds half its diameter, it is “deep drawn.”
The Process of Deep Drawing
The entire process of deep drawing begins with sheet metal. The technicians involved in the process must be highly skilled in order to get the best finish and quality possible, even though most of the process is automated. They use a die to form the metal around a punch using a continuous motion. The process of deep drawing a metal acts to give it an increased level of hardness and strength, which further makes the process attractive for producing components that will be undergoing a lot of stress when eventually put into use.
Deep draw stamping can be used to produce parts that are very intricate and precise. Depending on the quality of the machinery being used, it can attain a very high level of accuracy, which explains why it is used for even the most sensitive of fabrications, such as medical machines’ components.
Products Manufactured Using Deep Draw Stamping
As said earlier, deep draw stampings are used in a wide variety of applications and to make a wide variety of products. However, apart from the more advanced ones, there are quite a number of items that you might interact with on a daily basis without knowing that certain components are made using the deep drawing process. They include asthma inhalers, plumbing and heating fittings, lipstick tubes and some cosmetic containers, as well as batteries and even the widget you might find in a can of beer.
