Deep Drawn Stampings – Deep Drawing

Since 1903, customers have brought unique product requirements and manufacturing challenges to ECHO Industries and we have consistently and successfully delivered high quality solutions.


Deep Drawing

The deep draw process begins with metal blanks. Single blanks are employed to produce parts or products with deeper shapes. Throughout the deep drawing process a metal blank is shaped via pressure applied by a metal die.

Deep Drawing Station Types

The deep draw stamping process may entail smaller individual processes to achieve the final dimensions of a specified part. These may include

  • Blanking: Blanking is the process of cutting the initial sheet coil stock into round or shaped flats required for deep drawing. The blanking processes is typically the first station in the press and involves a simple punch and die to cut out an initial metal blank that will then be deep drawn.
  • Drawing: Drawing is the process of forming the metal with a punch and die. The final depth and shape may require progressively smaller series of dies that reduce the shape and increase depth and contour of the part.
  • Piercing: The process of punching holes in the metal.
  • Trimming: Excess metal is cut away to achieve the final dimensions of the finished part.


Characteristics of Deep Drawn Stampings include:

  • Wall thickness variation:
  • Work hardening:
  • Bend Radii
  • Part tolerances:


Advantages of Deep Drawing are:

-Economical for high volumes

-High strength and minimal weight

-Creating cylindrical objects and complex geometries possible

-Seamless parts

-Rapid cycle times and reduced lead times

-Controllable quality
