    - α brass is suitable for cold and deep drawing operations.

    - The plastic deformation of metals below the recrystallization temperature is called as cold working.

    - Cold rolling increases strength and also improves surface finish.

    Deep drawing

    - It is a sheet metal forming process in which, mechanical action of a punch is used to radially draw sheet metal blank to form a die. It is a shape transformation process.

    - This process is called as “deep drawing” when the depth of the drawn part exceeds its diameter.
