A Review on Deep Drawing Process

D. Swapna, Ch, Srinivasa Rao, S. Radhika


Deep Drawing (DD) process is the one in which a punch forces a flat sheet metal blank into a die cavity.  DD can also be described as the process which involves conversion of flat thin sheet metal blanks into parts of desired shape. Little work is available in the applications of DD processes at elevated temperatures which is going to be a very important manufacturing application in the coming decades. Deep Drawing (DD) is one of the sheet metal forming processes widely used in automobile, aerospace, electronics and allied industries to produce the hollow parts. The improvement in the deep drawing manufacturing process with latest methodologies leads to developments in the automobile and other sheet metal industries. Still today, this process of analysis and design is an art than science. Presently, the conventional deep drawing (CDD) operation is carried out at room temperature in industries. Although the deep drawing process of high strength / low formability metals has an extensive industrial application area, deep drawing at room temperature has serious difficulties because of the large amount of deformations revealed and high flow stresses of the materials. The present paper gives an overview of deep drawing process, its classification along with advantages, limitations and applications.
