Sheet metal mild steel clamping brackets formed on fly press tooling
These sheet metal brackets have had the U shaped section formed on a hydraulic fly press
with simple fly press tooling. They have been manufactured from 1.5mm CR4, mild steel, by CNC punching the holes and outer profile and then by CNC bending them to create a square cornered U shape. This component has then been formed in fly press tooling to create the curved U shaped section in the middle of the bracket. The tooling was made in a few hours and didn’t cost very much making this form of production ideal of small batches of work, proving prototypes and special bespoke projects. V and F Sheet Metal’s ability to turn our hand to such a range of sheet metal work gives our customers a great advantage when it comes to new design projects. We rarely say no to our customers ideas and usually only to suggest where a change can be made to improve the design to make it easier for manufacturing. There are plenty of examples of sheet metal projects within these blog posts and throughout the website plant and gallery pages that illustrate our versatility, please take a look.
