Measuring deformation mostly is based on the contact type of measurements which utilize the gauges and instruments. But this type of contact will lead to error in the precise measurement because of errors by the contact, measuring instruments, and human. So, feel proud to introduce image processing in the field of measurement. Here, in this study deals the measurement of deformation of deep drawing specimen by image processing which is called as contact free method. This is invasive method of measurement in two dimensions.Deep drawing process is an important sheet metal forming in which flat sheet metal had been forced through the die in association with the forward punch force and opposing blank holder force. As the blank passes through the tool set converts 2D bank into 3D cup formation. The process of achieving the required diameter of the cup can be produced in single stage or multistage operation. In this study, experimental study had been conducted on single stage deep drawing process for assessment of deformation and strain in aluminum alloy, copper alloy and brass alloy. Cylindrical cup deep drawing experimental tests were performed with blank of 60 x 60 square plate with 1 mm thickness. Eventually this new approach will help to optimize the geometry parameters deep drawing specimen correlation with the Matlab results.
