Folded sheet metal work produced here at V and F Sheet Metal
Folded mild steel brackets
Great example of simple mild steel channel brackets that have been CNC punched and then CNC bent using one of our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes. These sheet metal projects are typical of the folded work that we are involved with everyday of the week for our UK customer base. Many parts that we fold up have to meet tight tolerances, such as +/- 0.2mm and we can achieve that in thin gauges due to the accuracy of the blanks we can produce via CNC punching and laser cutting as well as the high quality CNC folding facilities we have within our company.
Folded aluminium sheet metal trays
CNC punched and CNC bent aluminium chassis trays are no problem for us. We have a range of standard CNC punch tooling that enables us to produce your electronics holes, cut-outs and profiles without the need for new tooling in the vast majority of cases. These chassis trays were produced with a protective plastic film on the outside and then treated with an Iridite NCP finish before sending to our customer. We are often asked to finish a sheet metal project be it powder coating, wet spray painting, anodising and Iriditing aluminium or zinc plating mild steel. We have a network of suppliers who can provide these finishes and offer design help for more complex parts to ensure there aren’t any problems when being treated.
Laser cut and folded mild steel brackets
These mild steel brackets were laser cut, folded on our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brake and formed with simple tooling we made up to go on our fly-presses. They show nicely the range of manufacturing techniques that can go into the simplest of sheet metal parts.
For more information on the range of bending / folding options we can offer you from the smallest stainless steel spring clip to 3M long folded sheet metal sections. Have a sheet metal work project that needs folding, please give us a call or send your drawings to email@example.com and we can offer you free advice if needed and quote options to see what will work best for you.
