What is Deep Draw Stamping?

Deep draw metal stamping refers to the process of stamping parts out of sheet metal where the depth of the stamped part is greater than the length of it. The sheet metal is secured in a die and then pressed with up to 400 tons of force to shape the part. Deep drawing is especially beneficial when creating high volumes of parts because the per unit cost decreases as unit count increases. Once the tooling and dies have been created then the process can continue without much downtime.

Benefits of Deep Drawing

Deep drawing is quick. No other process can match the speed of a punch press. This usually makes deep drawing the most efficient of the forming technologies. This translates into cost savings if there is a high product count. It helps too that the process essentially eliminates steps such as fixing and welding because products are made with closed ends and don’t require cutting. Deep drawn products are seamless, which avoids the need for cutting and welding but also increases the integrity of each piece. Parts coming off the press are highly accurate and the parts that are produced come off identical, and thanks to the work hardening process, deep drawing produces very strong parts.

Deep Draw Stamping Suppliers FAQs

How deep can you stamp metal?

The depth to which you can stamp or form metal depends on several factors, including the type of metal, its thickness, and the specific stamping process being used. In general, metal stamping processes can achieve varying depths, ranging from shallow impressions to deeper forms. However, there are practical limitations.

For sheet metal stamping, which is a common method, the depth of the stamping is influenced by the material's ductility, the tonnage of the stamping press, and the design of the die. Thicker and more ductile materials may allow for deeper stampings. The tonnage of the press determines the force applied during the stamping process.

Deep drawing is a specific form of stamping where a sheet metal blank is drawn into a die cavity to form a cup or shell-like shape. This process can achieve relatively deep forms compared to other stamping techniques.

It's important to note that extremely deep stampings may face challenges such as material thinning, wrinkling, or tearing. Engineers and manufacturers carefully design the stamping process, including the choice of materials and tooling, to ensure that the desired depth can be achieved without compromising the integrity of the metal or the final part.

In summary, the depth to which metal can be stamped is influenced by the material properties, thickness, and the specific stamping method employed, with engineering considerations crucial to achieving the desired results without compromising the material.

What are the four types of metal stamping?

Metal stamping encompasses various techniques, and the specific method chosen depends on the requirements of the project. While there may not be a universally agreed-upon classification of four distinct types of metal stamping, I can provide a general overview of four common types or processes within metal stamping:

Blanking: Blanking involves cutting a flat shape (blank) from a sheet of metal. The cut piece, known as a blank, is the desired product, and the remaining material is scrap. This process is often a preliminary step in the production of more complex stamped parts.

Piercing: Piercing is a metal stamping process that involves creating holes in the metal sheet. These holes can serve functional purposes, such as facilitating assembly or providing ventilation. Piercing can be combined with other stamping operations.

Forming: Forming in metal stamping involves changing the shape of the metal without necessarily removing material. This can include bending, stretching, or deep drawing to create three-dimensional shapes or contours in the metal sheet.

Coining: Coining is a precision metal stamping process that is used to create extremely detailed and accurate features on the metal surface. It often involves high forces to produce sharp and well-defined edges or embossed patterns.

It's worth noting that these processes are not mutually exclusive, and a single metal stamping operation may involve a combination of these techniques to achieve the desired final product. Additionally, other specialized stamping processes, such as drawing, embossing, and hemming, may be used based on the specific requirements of the project. The choice of the stamping process depends on factors like the part's complexity, material properties, and intended application.
