Advanced Deep drawing techniques, simple solutions
We are constantly working to raise our work to a higher level. From traditional precision work such as making the moulds to the production process itself.
The combination of the latest technological developments, expertise, craftsmanship and love for our profession, results in simple but perfect solutions.
When deep drawing, a flat plate is bent into the right shape, independent of the type of metal. This process can be used to produce cylinders, rectangles and other intermediate shapes, for example. We guarantee a result that is accurate to the fraction of a millimetre. Even the fluctuation in plate and wall strength is minimal.
For you as a potential customer, it is especially important to know that deep drawing is a step-by-step process. This means that a product is produced in several phases and that special tools are required for each phase. The art of deep drawing is mainly to reduce the number of steps to a minimum. This can be done in various ways.
First of all, in consultation with our customers, it is decided to adapt the design in such a way that only the really necessary operations are carried out. Geerts Deep drawing is therefore very much in favour of discussing the extent to which a product can be produced during the development phase of the product. Another factor is the choice of the right deep drawing technique. That is why it is important that we have specialised in all technical details.
Deep Drawing techniques
At Geerts, conventional deep-drawing and reverse deep drawing are the most commonly used techniques.
Conventional Deep Drawing
By use of a stamp and a mould, a flat plate is turned into a 3D product or semi-finished product. This method is suitable for almost all types of metal and is used most often. The end result is very accurate. Multiple deep drawing steps are often required for more complex shapes.
Reverse Deep Drawing
During reverse deep drawing, the product is turned inside out in a second pull. The process is very suitable for pressing spherical and conical products. It is possible to make a combined stamp but the tool is very complex.
