Metal Alloys for Stamping & Deep Drawn Part Manufacturing


Formability and deep draw capabilities are a huge concern for manufacturers and part-makers. Deep drawing requires annealed properties with a homogeneous fine grain microstructure and very uniform mechanical properties throughout the coil. There is a combination of many variables that Ulbrich controls to ensure that our material provides the best formability for even the most difficult drawing process applications. This whitepaper explores the factors stampers should consider when selecting the alloys that will provide the most optimal formability for their specific deep draw application.

At Ulbrich, we understand that the stamping process benefits greatly from materials that are consistent and uniform through and through. That's why we pride ourselves on providing unparalleled metal flatness, superior surface finish, as well as our precision capability for surface oxide control. With our stringent specifications and commitment to buy only from the highest quality suppliers, our narrow width rolling mills with automatic gauge control can provide an extraordinarily tight thickness tolerance along the width and length of all coils, insuring stability in the drawing process and producing parts with minimal burrs. We utilize state-of-the-art equipment that further enhances our material quality for stamping and deep draw operations in all the critical markets we proudly serve.

Ulbrich has been supplying metal strip, foil, and shaped wire to stampers in over 165 alloys for multiple generations. Working with our in-house equipment and rolling mill team, your order of precision metal for deep draw stamping can be slit, cut-to-length, rolled to the thinnest gauges, annealed to various common or custom tempers, and more.
