Deep Draw Metal Stamping – Trans-Matic

Deep draw stamping is a specialized metal forming process that transforms flat sheet metal into three-dimensional shapes with significant depth. It involves drawing the metal sheet into a die cavity using a punch. The process is characterized by stretching and compressing the metal to achieve the desired shape, often requiring multiple drawing operations to form the final component.

At Trans-Matic, we have honed this specialized metal forming technique since 1968, ensuring excellence in every project. Our comprehensive capabilities and industry-leading expertise make us the partner of choice for diverse companies and industries, from automotive to healthcare.

The Deep Draw Stamping Process

Deep draw stamping involves the following stages to achieve the desired outcome:

Material Preparation

The process begins with selecting the appropriate sheet metal material based on the specific requirements of the part to be manufactured. Factors such as material composition, thickness, and ductility are carefully considered to ensure optimal results.

Blank Cutting

Via an automated transfer process, a strip of the carefully selected material is fed into a press and blanks, which are the basis from which the part will be formed, are cut to the required size and shape.


The blanks are moved into draw stations, where a punch applies force to draw the material into a die cavity. As the punch descends, the material is stretched and formed, gradually taking on the shape of the die cavity.

Trimming and Piercing

Once the desired shape is achieved, excess material is trimmed away from the edges of the part using trimming dies. Additional piercing operations may also be performed to create holes or openings in the component as required.

Additional Operations

Operations such as bending, flanging, or coining may be performed to further refine the shape or add features to the component. It may also undergo additional finishing processes such as cleaning, deburring, or surface treatment to enhance its appearance and performance.

Advantages of Deep Draw Stamping

Deep draw metal stamping offers many advantages, making it a preferred choice for manufacturers across various industries. Here are some key benefits:

Material efficiency

The process creates quality products with minimal scrap, reducing costs and environmental impact.


With reduced material waste and enhanced production efficiencies, deep draw metal stamping offers a cost-effective solution for producing complex components.

High precision

The controlled deformation of metal sheets ensures consistent and accurate part dimensions, meeting the most stringent quality requirements.


This manufacturing process can accommodate many materials, including stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and various alloys. It allows manufacturers to produce components with complex geometries for diverse applications across industries.

Strength and durability

Deep draw stamped parts exhibit enhanced strength and durability due to the cold-working process. The metal undergoes plastic deformation, improving mechanical properties and resistance to wear, corrosion, and fatigue.
