By design, deep drawn cans have many benefits over other manufacturing methods. They are seamless, concentric, and the speed of the process makes the cost per part lower than almost every other method. Like any other manufacturing project, there are a few important facts to remember when deciding to produce cans with the deep drawn process.


#3: Dimensions and wall thickness

The deep draw process relies on detailed calculations regarding the way the material will behave during the process. For each new product, precision dies and punches are developed that are carefully designed to create the highest quality part with the least amount of scrap.

The dimensions and desired wall thickness of the finished deep drawn cans determine not only the design of the die, but also the set-up of the press and the maximum production speed of the process. It is important to compare the desired dimensions to the capabilities of the process in order to best balance quality, speed, and cost.

#2: Communication with the Supplier

As mentioned in #3, it is important to understand how the attributes of the deep draw process affect the design of the desired product. It is possible that a few simple design changes can improve quality and reduce cost. As the customer it is impossible to be an expert on the deep drawn process, which makes it imperative that the lines of communication between you and the supplier are well developed. The discussions between customer and supplier should always be a smooth transfer of information, beginning with the part concept and developing in to the best possible compromise between function and feasibility.

#1: Type of Material

The decision regarding the type of material to be used can often be far more complicated than you may think. As mentioned above, there is a fine balance between final function and process capabilities. Carefully deciding material type during the development phase is critical to the success of the project.

Information on material properties is readily available via the internet ( as well as a host of books on the subject. By talking with your deep draw supplier and understanding how the properties of material work in relation to the deep drawn cans process, you can develop a design that not only meets the specifications of the product but works fluidly with the manufacturing process.
