Custom Sheet Metal Brackets
Mild steel drum mounting bracket
As a sub-contract sheet metal working company we have to be able to turn our hand to all sorts of sheet metal projects to help our customers. Here’s a requirement you don’t see every day of the week, custom sheet metal brackets to suspend marching drums from a leather belt. These customer sheet metal brackets have been laser cut on our in house Trumpf 3030 fibre laser cutter from 4mm thick mild steel sheet using nitrogen for a clean non-oxidised finish. The bracket legs were then folded up on our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes in batches of 50. You can see where the 2 slight bends are simulating the curve that will be needed when this bracket is riveted onto the drummers belt. Custom sheet metal brackets are something that we love to manufacture for our customers in all sorts of shapes and sizes. The final bracket was polished and then chrome plated to produce a high shine finish.
Laser cut angle brackets
These custom sheet metal brackets are a simpler item but just as important to their customer. These brackets were laser cut from 3mm 304 stainless steel alloy and again bent up on our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes. They were needed with other custom sheet metal work for a solar panel installation project. The edge quality produced by laser cutting meant we didn’t have to de-burr these brackets, saving time and money for the customer.
Both custom sheet metal brackets were produced from 3D models created in Radan sheet metal software with the drum bracket modelled from a customer’s sketch and the solar panel angle brackets coming direct from a customer’s 3D solid works STEP file. If you have a custom sheet metal bracket design and need some help developing details or simple want a price for manufacturing please contact us and we will be happy to help you.
