Sheet metal forming is widely used in automotive and aerospace industry. In this paper analysis of sheet metal forming process by deep drawing was discussed. Static analysis on the deep drawing operation was carried out to find the stresses, strains and total deformation of deep drawing cup. CAD models are generated using CATIA from the dimensions obtained by theoretical calculations and analysis is carried out using ANSYS software. The force required to develop the cup, deformation and defect like tearing, wrinkles etc. can be obtained through simulation. By using this method it is easy to make stress and strain analysis for different materials. From the analysis it is observed that Titanium has the maximum stress with standing ability when compared to copper and Aluminum.
