Sheet metal fabrication is the process of forming metal sheets of steel or aluminum into the desired shape(metal structures or products), by cutting, punching, folding, and assembling. The completion of a product usually comprises many steps – from cutting and… Read More »5 Basic Sheet Metal Fabrication Techniques
Sheet Metal Fabrication
How well do you know your sheet metal cutting and shearing terminology? Pretty well? Or could you use a refresher so you can understand what your sheet metal fabricator is trying to do and how to effectively communicate with it?… Read More »Sheet Metal Glossary for Laser Cutting & Shearing
The aluminum alloys in the bending process When processing sheet metal parts or designing sheet metal parts, it is often encountered that the aluminum plate cannot be bent, and the bending cracks. The bending of the aluminum plate mainly depends… Read More »Which 3 types of the best aluminum alloys for bending?
Buffing and polishing In the sheet metal fabrication process, buffing and polishing is a common parts processing process. It is the process of pre-processing such as cutting or grinding to provide a smooth surface. The accuracy of geometric shapes such… Read More »What is Polishing in Sheet Metal Fabrication?
In sheet metal fabrication, the commonly used methods of surface treatment include electro-galvanizing, chrome plating, powder spraying, electrophoresis, and dipping. No matter which method is used, attention must be paid to the cleaning of the material before surface treatment.
What is the bending process in sheet metal fabrication? The bending of sheet metal refers to the processing of changing the angle of the sheet or plate. Such as bending the sheet into a V-shape, U-shape, etc. In general, there… Read More »2 bending methods for sheet metal fabrication
Sheet metal can come in quite a variety of types. Sheet metal fabrication processes are also designed to adapt to the metal being used. What are commonly used materials in sheet metal work? Varied metals and metal alloys can be… Read More »6 Types of Materials are Used in Sheet Metal Fabrication
Sheet metal fabrication is the process of turning flat sheets of steel or aluminium into metal structures or products, by cutting, punching, folding and assembling. Sheet metal can be cut, bent or stretched into nearly any shape, which is generally done… Read More »Guide to sheet metal fabrication process in 2022
Bending process The metal bending process is one of the most common sheet metal fabrication operations. The bending process is done through the application of force on a workpiece. The force must exceed the material’s yield strength to achieve a… Read More »6 differences between bending and folding bending process
Know What Materials Are Good For Bending Some materials are more malleable than others. That means that some will bend, whereas others will weaken and crack. For less malleable materials, it might be practical to heat up the workpiece to… Read More »Sheet metal bending process: Cold and hot bending, press, roll, and stretch bending
