There are a number of different raw materials that are suitable for the deep draw process. Today we will examine Low Carbon Steel.

Low Carbon Steel offers the best overall value of all the types of raw materials that can be drawn because of its cost. It typically has a much shorter lead-time from the raw material supplier to the factory as well. Because of its ability to be formed easily low carbon steel requires less tonnage for the deep draw stamping operations than other materials such as Stainless Steel.

Low Carbon Steel has a very low corrosion resistance. If a longer corrosion life is required low carbon steel can be electro galvanized coated prior to the deep draw forming operations. If an even higher corrosion resistance is required the low carbon steel can be coated or plated as a secondary operation after the deep draw stamping operations.

Accurate Forming produces deep drawn metal stampings made from Low Carbon Steel that have high strength requirements. Low Carbon Steel work hardens very nicely as it goes through the forming operations. Low Carbon Steel is also a very good material to use if welding the drawn component is going to be done. Grades of low carbon steel that are used in the deep draw process are G10050 low carbon steel, G10060 low carbon steel, G10080 low carbon steel, G10100 low carbon steel, G10120 low carbon steel, G10350 low carbon steel, G10300 low carbon steel, and G10500 low carbon steel.

Components made from low carbon steel deep drawn metal stamping are typically found in applications such as structural components, automotive applications and applications that will not be in extreme weather conditions.

Low Carbon Steel when used for the right applications can be a cost effective, strong and valuable raw material. Please contact Accurate Forming at (973)827-7155 or at [email protected] or visit our website at to learn more about what Accurate Forming can do for you.
