Deep Drawn Presswork

Deep drawn metal pressings

Our team is specialised in producing deep drawn presswork (pressings) and is a process of forming a sheet metal in which a metal blank is drawn into a forming die by the mechanical action of a punch. It is a shape transformation process, retaining the material. This process is considered as deep drawing, when the depth of the part exceeds its diameter. It can be made it through a series of dies. This process is known as reduction.

In major cases, the exact size of a component cannot be formed into shape after first reduction process. Until the exact size is achieved, the component undergoes a series of reduction cycles.


Deep drawing is a forming process that occurs under the combination of tensile conditions. A flat sheet metal blank formed into a hollow body that opens one side or hollow body formed into a hollow body with a smaller cross-section.
3 types:

  • with tools
  • with active means
  • with active energy

In the automotive industry, deep drawing is usually carried out using rigid tools. These tools include die, punch, and binder.

Step 1: The plate holder closes when the blank metal sheet is inserted

Step 2: The sheet is clamped between binder and die

This process slows the sheet flow and also prevents wrinkles forming under the binder.

Work of punch – It stretches the sheet over the die radius and forms in the die. The force is vital for forming and is thereby increased up to the lower dead center of the punch.


  1. Seamless – a can, or tube shape has no joins. This makes an ideal process for anything that needs to be gas-tight
  2. Produce strong parts – Most of the metals work harden as they tend to deform. Their crystal structure allows a certain amount of movement but beyond it, it becomes locked
  3. High ability – deep drawing has the ability to produce shapes with complex geometries
  4. Speed – The punch press moves up and down at lighting speed. If you need a large quantity of parts, then this is the most efficient method
  5. Consistency – it ensures a high volume of component as once the required die and tooling has been created, it’s simple to repeat batch to batch with high quality, little upkeep and still satisfy the customer
