While production metal stamping creates two-dimensional parts, deep draw metal stamping is capable of producing multi-dimensional ones. It begins by heating, or annealing, metal parts so that the metal can be formed into any desired shape. This is ideal for creating metal shapes that look seamless or require extensive detail.
Deep Draw Stamping Capabilities
Deep draw stamping capabilities depend on several factors, but Degele Manufacturing offers a variety of options in regards to:
- Metals (the type of material used to create the part)
- Tolerances (what the metal part can safely endure)
- Modifications (other alterations to the part)
Our experts will examine parts for quality, ensuring that no matter what metal, tolerances, or modifications are required, the part can not only meet them but also maintain its quality, functionality, and appearance.
The Deep Draw Stamping Process
Before we begin the deep draw stamping process, it’s critical to ensure that all materials and tools are up to the task. This begins with a review of the metal, die design, and requested tolerances and modifications. Once we’ve verified quality and capabilities, we can choose the best stamping press for the job. The ideal press depends on the dimensions and composition of the die and metal parts.
As with many production processes, deep draw stamping relies on technology to ensure precision. A part is usually drafted using digital software, which helps show how the product will look in reality. This 3-D rendering shows any flaws in the design, so metal isn’t wasted on the creation of a new, custom-made part.
Finally, we can begin stamping. After setting up all materials and tools, the sheet metal is placed under the die in the stamping press. The press pushes the die down onto the sheet metal, creating the shape and design of the die.
Benefits of Deep Draw Stamping for Metal Components
There are a number of benefits to deep draw stamping, and many of them are economical. Since it relies on custom-made dies, you can save money on large, bulk stamping orders. The ability to customize your parts prevents you from having to make the same orders over and over again, since chances are we already have the materials and tools to create it. This flexibility also means you can choose which type of metal works best for your purposes, saving money and reducing waste.
Deep draw stamping ensures a quick and simple exchange when you need custom-made parts. It’s one of the quickest ways to mass-produce unique parts without sacrificing product quality.
Considerations for Deep Draw Stamping
Our experts always work with clients to make sure they are choosing the best process for their product. Here are some of the most crucial elements of deep draw stamping production:
- Measurements need to be accurate to produce the highest quality part. We always recommend you take into account material thickness when taking your measurements.
- Because of the process of deep draw stamping, we use a larger amount of the base material.
- Drafting and tapering is unavoidable with this process so we always take this into account when designing the die.
- The base of the metal part will sometimes be thicker than the walls. After drawing this can be corrected by machine tooling.
