Manufacturing sheet metal work for companies in and around Winchester
Folding long sheet metal profiles
V and F Sheet Metal have been manufacturing sheet metal work and welded fabrications for over 30 years now. We supply a wide range of sheet metal products from our base here in Fareham, Hampshire to companies in Hampshire and right across the UK to the lighting, heating, electronics and professional audio industries as well as a wide range of specialist companies across the UK. We often deliver products to Winchester, Eastleigh, Southampton, Portsmouth and Basingstoke as well as using overnight services to Scotland, Wales and the rest of the England.
When you are making long channel sections like these you need a bending machine that can provide the bending power and accuracy on bend size and angle right up to 3M long. Our Safan e-Brake 100 ton CNC press brake is just such a machine. Installed new in 2015 this machine is perfectly suited to the range of sheet work we tend to bend and provides a bending force that matches the longest work we can laser cut.
Sheet metal bending
You can see here the guillotined blanks on the right hand of the bending machine and the finished folded U channels on the left hand side of the machine. You need a fair bit of space when it comes to producing parts like these and our 13,000 sq. ft. factory provides the flexibility to take on this type of work as well as higher volumes of smaller parts. You only have to look through some of our past blog posts and the gallery pages on the website to see the wide range of sheet metal work that we get involved with for our customers. From these 3M long sections to CNC punched and folded aluminium lighting gear trays, stainless steel support brackets, mild steel electrical cabinets, copper bus bars, brass display units, aluminium LED display PCB plates etc.
Bent galvanised steel sections
The final 3M long galvanised mild steel sections stacked on a pallet ready to be wrapped up and delivered to the customer. This batch was for 2 different channel cross sections and approximately 350 of each type.
