How DRD cans are made

DRD cans are formed starting with a “blank” (metal cut-out) that corresponds to the eventual size and shape of the resulting can. The can is shaped by holding the blank in place and using a punch to push the metal into shape. Additional steps may be required, depending on the complexity of the shape.
