The Importance of Surface Finish and Geometry for Reducing Tear off Rates with Proper Ironing Die Design

The ironing process in the bodymaker machine is a critical step for the manufacturing of drawn and wall-ironed aluminum cans. To ensure the production of high-quality can bodies with low tear off rates, proper ironing die design is essential. Two of the most important factors to consider for designing optimized ironing dies are geometry and surface finish.
