What Is Sheet Metal Fabrication?

Sheet metal fabrication is one of the traditional manufacturing process. Usually the material is steel or aluminum. In the process, the material will be turned into metal structures or products, by cutting, punching, folding and assembling. Sheet metal can be bent, cut or stretched into a variety of shapes, which is usually made by cutting and burning the metal material.

At BOYI Prototypes, we can supply cold-rolled sheet (SPCC), hot-rolled sheet (SHCC), galvanized sheet (SECC, SGCC), copper (CU) brass, copper, beryllium copper, aluminum sheet (6061, 6063,etc.), aluminum profiles, stainless steel (mirror surface, brushed surface, matte surface). We can give professional advice according to product usage and cost.

Sheet Metal Fabrication Feeding Way

1. Shearing machine: It is a simple piece of material that is cut by a shearing machine. It is mainly prepared for die blanking. The cost is low and the accuracy is less than 0.2MM. Block material. Carbon steel laser cutting

2. Punching machine: It uses a punching machine to punch flat parts after unfolding the parts on the sheet in one or more steps to form various shapes of materials. Its advantages are short man-hours, high efficiency, high precision, low cost, and suitable for large batches. Production, but design the mold.

3. CNC: First of all, write the CNC machining program, and use the programming software to compile the developed drawing into a program recognizable by the CNC digital drawing machine, and let it punches out the various shapes of the flat plate one by one according to these programs But its structure is affected by the tool structure, the cost is low, and the accuracy is 0.15MM

4. Laser cutting is the use of a laser cutting method to cut out the structural shape of the flat plate on the large flat plate. The same as NC cutting, it is necessary to write a laser program. It can cut various complex-shaped flat pieces with high cost and accuracy At 0.1MM

5. Saw machine: mainly use aluminum, square tube, figure tube, round bar, etc., with low cost and low accuracy.
