Sheet metal boxes manufactured from 3mm aluminium
I’m always on the look out for good images to show the range of parts that we manufacture for our customers. These aluminium boxes caught my eye as they have several production processes to be carried out before the final boxes are ready to ship to the customer. The boxes are a typical example of the work we manufacture from our factory in Fareham, Hampshire, UK. Firstly the boxes were CNC punched out from sheet aluminium to the exact blank sizes calculated by our Radan sheet metal software. The edges were de-burred to remove any sharp sections and then bent up as you see here on our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brake bending machines. The then went on to have M4 bushes inserted, corners tacked welded together and finally powder coat painting. The batch size was 400 which lies in the middle of the volumes we normally produce for our customers. We can cope with sample prototype parts and small special projects to repeat batches for tens and many hundreds through to thousands off for some smaller parts.
