METAL FORMING PROCESSES

Deep Drawing

As a metal forming process, Amalco’s deep drawing capabilities are in high-demand. This method involves drawing a sheet-metal blank around a punch as it’s pulled through a die. Deep drawing allows for multiple draws, too; so even though it only achieves 43% reductions per draw, greater depths can be formed with multiple draws. Deep drawing is ideal for complex cylinders, enclosures, and irregular shapes.

Hydroforming

Amalco also offers metal spinning (which is sometimes known as spin forming) as a secondary operation. Commercial metal spinning is the metalworking process used to further customize shapes that would be impossible to form through deep drawing or hydroforming alone.

Spin forming is an effective production method for prototypes as well as high-quantity production runs. It’s relatively easy to make alterations with spin forming, too — which is why it’s known as a particularly cost-effective metal forming process.
