Deep Drawn Pressings

Innovation. Experience. A worldwide leader in deep drawn pressings.

Common deep draw pressing components

Some examples of common household items use deep draw pressed components ­– and benefit in terms of cost and aesthetics:

  • batteries
  • lipstick tubes / cosmetics containers
  • asthma inhalers
  • catheter holders
  • metal pen lids
  • metal ball point pen refills
  • “widgets” in beer cans
  • plumbing and heating fittings.
  • large enclosures


Those are just a few examples – any item, from any industry, that features a seamless metal tube could include a component that has been deep drawn pressed.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Many metals are suitable for deep draw pressings. The most common are stainless steel, aluminium, brass, copper and cold rolled steel. The principal requirement is that the metal should be ductile so that the part can be created without putting any undue stress on it which could lead to cracks or weaknesses in the finished component.

The process first involves creating a series of geometric dies. These are installed on the deep draw press. A blank metal component is then passed through the press, being pressed (or drawn) into each die in turn. At the end of the process, the final shape is achieved. Typical production speed is 60 parts a minute. The process can be repeated if a particularly complicated shape is required.

Where large volumes are involved, deep draw pressings is an extremely cost-effective process. This is because once the dies have been installed on the deep draw press, the process is entirely mechanical. We have engineered deep drawn components that have offered more than 85% reductions in unit cost when compared to the original machined parts. This makes the process ideal for high volume, low retail price items.
