What is custom sheet metal?
Sheet Metal , a processing technology, sheet metal has not yet had a relatively complete definition. According to a definition of a professional journals abroad, it can be defined as: sheet metal is for sheet metal (usually in under 6 mm), an integrated cold process including cutting, punching/cut/composite, folding, riveting, joining together, forming (such as car body). The distinctive feature is the same thickness of the same part.
What is the Sheet metal process?
Sheet metal process in general basic equipment including shearing Machine (Shear Machine), CNC punch press, CNC’m Machine)/laser, plasma, water jet Cutting Machine, Cutting Machine), Bending Machine, Bending Machine), drilling Machine and all kinds of auxiliary equipments such as: uncoiling Machine, leveling Machine, deburring Machine, spot welding Machine, etc.
Generally, the four most important steps in sheet metal process are cutting, punching/cutting /, folding/roll, welding, surface treatment, etc.
Sheet metal stamping Dies and plastic sometimes, this word is derived from the English platemetal, general is a few sheet metal by manually or stamping mould make its produce plastic deformation, forming the desired shape and size, and can be further by welding or a small amount of machining to form more complex parts, such as chimney is commonly used in family, tin furnace, and motor shell are sheet metal parts.
Sheet metal processing is called sheet metal processing.Concrete such as the use of plate making chimney, iron drum, and the size of the tank of the oil pot, ventilation pipe, elbow, head, nature round place, funnel, etc., the main process is shear, bending, buckles, bending forming, welding, riveting, etc., requires some knowledge of geometry.
Sheet metal with light weight, high strength and conductivity (can be used in electromagnetic shielding), low cost, mass production performance is good wait for a characteristic, in electronic appliances, communications, automotive, medical equipment and other fields has been widely used, for example in the computer case, mobile phone, MP3, sheet metal part is essential. With the application of sheet metal is more and more widely, the sheet metal parts design into a very important part of the product development process, mechanical engineers must master the design technique of sheet metal parts, sheet metal makes the design meets both of the product function and appearance requirement, and can make the stamping mould manufacturing is simple and low cost.
