Processes Within Sheet Metal Fabrication

by:Bofeng     2020-09-14
Ever wondered about THAT something that is common between cladding, flashing roofs, conductor pipes, air conditioners, cresting and many such other objects. That's sheet metals used in objects that we use daily in our routine lives, but we just miss to identify with it. The sheet metal is nothing but metal formed into thin flat pieces. These sheet metals don't originate like the way it is used in making objects. There is a definitive process that goes in making such metal sheets, which is called Sheet metal fabrication.
This complex sounding process that is actually a simpler method uses different metals in fabrication. It uses Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Galvanized Steel, Copper, Brass, Tin, Nickel, Titanium and Steel metals. The metal used is then fabricated by bending, welding, rolling, stretching, cutting or trimming. Some of the other most common processes used for fabrication of metal sheet are
1. Press Forming - Press Forming is a type of bending primarily used for thin and long metal sheets. 2. Stamping - This process is used for highly complex shapes and it has various sub processes such as punching, coining, blanking and bending. 3. Deep Drawing - Deep Drawing is a process to stretch the metal to attain a particular desired form. This is mainly used for in making kitchen sinks and fuel tanks. 4. Punching - Punching is done by putting the metal sheet in between a punch and a die. 5. Spinning - Spinning is used for making motor casings and kitchen funnels.
Earlier hand tools used to achieve the same processes, but now with technological advances, machines are used for the same purpose. After the fabrication, the sheet metals are ready for use. These days they are used in almost every other industry including computers, industrial equipments, machine tools, consumer appliances, electronics' enclosures, auto parts, aircraft and spacecraft.
With computers and technology providing solutions and advancements to existing processes, Sheet Metal Fabrication is no exception. There are several computer aided design (CAD) software available to in the market in order to design the metal sheets. All industries have varied requirements, what CAD helps in is providing a three dimensional models of the desired output.
While looking out for a company that provide metal sheets fabrication services, one should find out their specialization in specific industries and technology they use in their working methods. Credibility, authenticity and references are always a big plus for such services.
