This paper “SIMULATION OF THE EFFECT OF DIE RADIUS ON DRAWING PROCESS” is one of the most used Metal Forming Process within the industrial field. Different analytical, numerical, empirical and experimental methods have been developed in order to analyze it. This work reports on the initial stages of finite element analysis (FEA) of a Deep drawing process. The objective of this study is to determine the factors influencing a drawing process and analyzing the process by varying the Die radius and keeping the Friction, Punch radius and Blank Thickness as constant. In this paper Punches, blank thickness of same geometry and dies of various geometries were drawn by using CATIA software. And an effort is made to study the simulation effect of main process variant namely die radius using finite element analysis. As the FEM code, the commercially available software DEFORM-3D is used here. Aluminium alloy 6061 is used for deep drawing with initial diameter as 56mm.
