Sheet metal fabrication is a classification of manufacturing processes that shape a piece of sheet metal into the desired part through material removal and material deformation.
Sheet metal, which acts as the workpiece in these processes, is one of the most common forms of raw material stock. The material thickness is generally considered to be a piece of stock between 0.006 and 0.25 inches. Sheet metal stock is available in a wide variety of materials, which include the following:
· Stainless steel
The main process for the sheet metal fabrication which we can provide as following,
Design - Sheet metal fabrication products are developed in a 3D environment on CAD software. Computer models of the metal products can be produced to ensure that assemblies are consistently successful at the prototype stage.
Prototyping - The metal prototyping service enables one-off metal prototypes in sheet metal, stainless steel or non-ferrous metal, utilising as many of the metal production processes as required within Xu Feng's sheet metal services.
Laser Cutting - Extremely versatile and efficient laser cutting machines of Xu Feng can work in a range of material types and thicknesses from mild steel to plastic.
CNC Punching -Xu Feng's CNC punching facilities comprise of 8 KEMADE machines, each offering unrivalled process speeds.
CNC Folding - Xu Feng has a range of forming facilities, each of them designed to suit differing product types.
Sheet metal can be cut, bent, and stretched into nearly any shape. Material removal processes can create holes and cutouts in any 2D geometric shape. Deformation processes can bend the sheet numerous times to different angles or stretch the sheet to create complex contours. The size of sheet metal parts can range from a small washer or bracket to midsize enclosures for home appliances, to large aeroplane wings. These parts are found in a variety of industries, such as aircraft, automotive, construction, consumer products, HVAC, and furniture.
