What metal materials are commonly used in the drawing process?


Today I will introduce you to the most commonly used stretched metal materials.

Tensile materials commonly used by manufacturers of custom tensile parts: mild steel. Low carbon steel is the most commonly used metal material for stretch forged parts, with good formability, good strength-to-weight ratio, work hardening, after forming. Possesses the best constructive characteristics and high profitability.

The stamping process of stainless steel is very different from the stamping process of other metals, and the stamping of stainless steel is very difficult. When the workpiece requires high wear resistance, heat resistance and corrosion resistance, stainless steel can be chosen. It is very strong, has a high strength to weight ratio, most grades of stainless steel are non-magnetic, can also be magnetic, heat treatable, and do not require coating.

Aluminum drawn parts are often used for batteries, beverage cans, batteries, heatsinks and other parts. Aluminum is the lightest metal of many metals, has an excellent strength to weight ratio, is non-magnetic, does not rust, is corrosion resistant, can be heat treated and can be anodized for a decorative surface finish that further resists corrosion.

Copper drawing is also difficult, but copper drawing parts have unique advantages in heat sensitive, electronic/electrical, plumbing, thermal and decorative industries. But copper is inherently resistant to corrosion, excellent for soldering, and can be polished for decorative purposes.

Titanium is lustrous and is known for its low density, high strength and high corrosion resistance. Titanium and its alloys are used in building materials, spacecraft, commercial and industrial tools, and custom applications. It has low electrical and thermal conductivity, high natural corrosion resistance, biocompatible and hypoallergenic for the medical industry

Tungsten and molybdenum Nichrome is a stronger alternative to stainless steel and other nickel-based alloys and has excellent oxidation resistance even at temperatures up to 1150°C. Nickel-chromium alloy tensile parts have excellent strength, high fatigue strength, low thermal expansion characteristics, compared with similar alloys, have extremely high resistance to nitriding and carburization.

Metal materials commonly used in the drawing process: carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, titanium alloy, nickel-chromium, etc.
