On-site tooling design, build and repair
- We can adapt existing tooling to run in our presses
Echo Industries specialized in Deep Drawn Stampings. Deep drawn stamping is a metalworking process that uses a punch and die to form sheet metal into a cup, cylinder, or other hollow shape. The process is typically done on a hydraulic press, but it can also be done on a mechanical press.
The first step in deep drawn stamping is to create a blank from sheet metal. The blank is then placed in the die, and the punch is lowered into the die. The punch forces the metal to flow around the die radius, forming the cup or cylinder.
The amount of metal that can be drawn depends on the material’s properties and the die design. The deeper the draw, the more force is required to form the part. If too much force is applied, the metal may tear or rupture.
Deep drawn stamping is a versatile process that can be used to create a wide variety of parts. Industries that Echo has provided products for include Medical, Construction, Industrial, Education and Military. Some common applications for deep drawn stamping include:
- Automotive parts, such as fuel tanks, oil pans, and door panels
- Electrical components, such as light fixtures and power connectors
- Household appliances, such as refrigerators and washing machines
- Medical devices, such as surgical instruments and implants
Deep drawn stamping offers a number of advantages over other metalworking processes. These advantages include:
- High accuracy and repeatability
- Smooth surface finish
- Strong and durable parts
- Seamless construction
- Low waste
Deep drawn stamping is a complex process that requires careful planning and execution. However, the resulting parts are often high-quality and cost-effective.
Here are some of the key benefits of deep drawn stamping:
- High accuracy and repeatability: Deep drawn parts are typically very accurate and repeatable, which is important for applications where tight tolerances are required.
- Smooth surface finish: Deep drawn parts have a smooth surface finish, which is often desirable for aesthetic reasons.
- Strong and durable parts: Deep drawn parts are strong and durable, which makes them suitable for a wide range of applications.
- Seamless construction: Deep drawn parts are typically seamless, which makes them ideal for watertight or airtight applications.
- Low waste: Deep drawn stamping is a relatively efficient process, which means that there is less waste material produced.
Overall, deep drawn stamping is a versatile and efficient process that can be used to create a wide variety of high-quality parts.
