SHEET METAL

SHEET METAL

Sheet metal fabrication is the process of forming metal sheets to the desired shape. The completion of a product usually comprises of many steps – from cutting, bending to specials treatments and assembling.
The journey from sheet metal to metal product starts from CAD engineering. After making the models, each part goes through the necessary sheet metal fabrication processes.

The most common ones are:

Laser Cutting

Laser cutting is the most preferred option. A very fast and precise method guaranteeing good results.
The advantage is evident with thicknesses up to 10 mm.

Mechanical Cutting

Die cutting is a process that cuts sheet metal without burning or melting it.
In die cutting, a punch presses the piece against a fixed die or blade.
It is a great and cost-effective method to cut the sheet into simple parts.

Punching

Punching is another way of cutting holes into a sheet. A metal punch hits the sheet, perforating it. It is suitable for large-scale production but not cost-effective for smaller jobs.

Bending

Probably the most difficult step in metal manufacturing because of the complexity of some bends. An engineer must be well acquainted with the limitations of metal bending to things that are actually producible.

Assembling

Assembling is one of the last steps of fabricating a product. If assembling includes welding, the parts have to be cleaned then powder coating follows. Other times parts are already powder coated and assembled using other methods, like riveting and bolting.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a process where a powder is applied to a charged metal component. It is the preferred finishing in heavy-wearing or acidic environments.
