Deep Drawing

What is deep drawing

Deep drawing is a manufacturing process whereby sheet metal is gradually formed into a seamless and millimetre accurate three-dimensional shape. This with the aid of a mould. The material to be processed that must be able to deform, is placed on the mould and is pressed down by the specially developed in-house presses in the shape. In the case of large and/or complex shapes, it is sometimes necessary to work with multiple draws. Geerts Deep Drawing has the expertise in-house to keep this to a minimum.  And this starts in the design phase of the product, manufacturing of the in our own tool shop and the right choice of material.

 

Advantages of deep drawing

Deep drawing provides consistently high and precise quality in the production of finished or semi-finished products. From simple to complex shapes in various materials. Even after long repetitive productions, there is minimum fluctuation in plate and wall thickness. And deep drawing is the alternative to forcing in metal.

 

Material types

Geerts can use deep drawing for most metal types. Steel, aluminium, copper, titanium, brass and stainless steel are the most widely known. This in thicknesses from 0.4 mm and deep drawing can be done to 600 mm high.
