Upcoming Seminar: Deep Draw Technology Boot CampJune 7, 2022
August 9-11, PMA Headquarters, Independence, OH; also Virtual
An intensive three-day engineering and design event for tool and die makers, die designers, tooling engineers and apprentices, the Deep Draw Technology Boot Camp will be led by Pete Ulintz, PMA technical director and author of the Tooling By Design column in MetalForming magazine.
The seminar offers a history of the deep drawing process and its basic tenets. Attendees also will develop a theoretical request for quote and learn design principles. Here’s a day-by-day breakdown:
Day 1: Receive a historical background of the deep drawing process, including commonly accepted—but often misapplied—rules-of-thumb. Learn in-depth the characteristics of deep drawing, shallow drawing, redrawing, reverse drawing, stretching and ironing, along with the influence that bending, straightening, friction, compression and tension have on each process.
Day 2: In a step-by-step approach, process a theoretical request for quote for a cylindrical part that includes estimating the number of draws and the blank size; calculating the required press-stroke length, tonnage and energy requirements; and selecting an appropriate press and determining the needed strokes/min. for the job.
