Sets of zintec coated mild steel folded sheet metal work used to create heating fan units. The flat blanks were produced by CNC punching from 0.9mm think material and after edge de-burring being bent up on one of our CNC press brakes. Typical batch sizes for these parts are 50 to 100 off with a turn round time of just a few days as we normally have stock of this material on the shelf. Sheet metal folded sections such as these can be CNC programmed on our CNC press brake bending machines in minutes and then saved away to be recalled for another batch whenever they are needed, helping to keep down set up times and costs for every batch that we fold up.
Whether it’s mild steel, aluminium or stainless steel folded sheet metal work makes no difference to us when we are sorting out production for you. We have a range of machine types, tonnages and tooling to suit all types of materials and in a section of materials thicknesses. So whether you are looking for sheet metal to be folded in 0.3mm tin plated mild steel, 0.9mm pre-painted mild steel, 1.5mm stainless steel, 3mm aluminium, 4mm not rolled plate or 8mm grained stainless steel we can sort it for you.
Folded stainless steel sheet metal work used to create the base and back for an adaptor housing to secure a light fitting to a ceiling section. This view shows the folded sections with bushes inserted before the separate folded end plates have been seam welded in place. Once the stainless steel ends were TiG welded in place and the n cleaned off smooth and powder coated the whole folded fabrication looked like one triangular block with all joints hidden from view to the final customer.
If you are looking for folded sheet metal work from the smallest of angle bracket right up to 2.5M folded profiles then please contact us with a drawing and we will be happy to take a look at your ideas and turn them into finished product.
