If you are looking for sheet metal work and you are based in the Bournemouth area right across to Portsmouth we will be happy to help you. We can delivery you work direct to you or as with many of our customers right across the country we can delivery on a next day pallet service. Here is a zintec coated mild steel bracket that we manufacture in batches of 250 to 500 at a time from our factory in Fareham, Hampshire for our customer in Oxford. The parts have been laser cut and CNC folded with simple standard press brake tooling, as shown here.
Here’s a much simpler part that has been fabricated from flat steel bars. The 2 bars have been sawed to length, had their corners notched off to create chamfers, all sharp edges de-burred in vertical belt sanding machines, holes pierced with a fly-press, folded on a CNC press brake to shape and then MiG welded together. The final fabrication is then treated by being hot dipped galvanised to protect it in external environments. These parts will finally be used to support outdoor flood lights and are manufactured in batches of 50 to 100 at a time.
Typical small sheet metal brackets manufactured in small batch sizes of 25 to 50 for one of our customers in Portsmouth, Hampshire. These 0.7mm thick galvanised steel brackets have been laser cut and CNC folded on our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes for a perfect job. Both of the small brackets have been CNC programmed using Radan sheet metal software, 2016 version. We use this software package to perform all our 2D and 3D tasks and create programs that drive our Trumpf CNC punch presses and Trumpf fibre laser machine.
