WHAT ARE DEEP-DRAWN PARTS?
Deep-drawn parts are produced during the process of tensile pressure forming. In this process, a flat sheet blank is formed in several stages into a hollow body that is open on one side. The production of deep-drawn parts, also known as drawn parts, is our core competence.
Deep drawing is used particularly frequently in the automotive industry for the production of car body parts, or in the sanitary sector as a press sleeve.
The consideration of specific properties of different materials is essential. We will be happy to advise you on this in advance without obligation.
Material: steel, non-ferrous metals, Nirosta, Ni-metals, etc.

WHY ARE DEEP-DRAWN PARTS SO WIDELY USED AND WHAT IS THEIR SPECIAL FEATURE?
The great peculiarity, which also ensures that deep-drawn parts are used in so many areas, lies in the fact that during the process the respective starting material is deformed, but its structure does not suffer. In fact, the material of the deep-drawn parts actually improves as a result of the plastic forming.
DEEP DRAWING IN DETAIL
Sheet metal forming is an important topic in the field of production technology, and deep drawing of metal is of particular importance here. It produces hollow bodies that are usually open on one side and are further processed in a wide variety of industries. From the automotive industry to the packaging industry to metal technology or certain sanitary items, such as components for shower hoses, various processing companies are thus dependent on deep drawing, or deep-drawn parts. According to DIN 8583, deep drawing itself is assigned to the forming process of tension forming. The aim of this production technique is to form a hollow body from a flat sheet blank (also known as a round blank) by upsetting and stretching. An essential advantage of aluminum deep drawing, stainless steel deep drawing or metal spinning, for example, is that the material structure of the starting material is not negatively affected. The exact opposite is the case: due to the plastic forming, the structure of the material actually improves. Typically, therefore, a wide range of starting materials is used in deep drawing, from steel, brass or copper through stainless steel, nickel or aluminum to a wide variety of alloys. In order to produce deep-drawn products, this manufacturing technique requires a specific deep-drawing die. A typical deep-drawing die usually consists of several stages, each with a punch (drawing die), a drawing ring and a blank holder. These components are manufactured in a modular concept in the in-house tool shop. As a production technique, deep drawing competes with milling or turning, for example, although the following advantages, which you can see in the list below, speak for themselves:
- Cost savings due to more efficient material utilization (up to 80%)
- Higher production output due to high stroke rates
- Less impact on the environment
- High process reliability
