Sheet metal work
Always looking for new images to demonstrate the range of components we manufacture in sheet metal for our customers I thought this was a good example. Manufactured from 1.2mm thick 1050a aluminium alloy it shows off several manufacturing techniques in one component. These light tunnels have been made to focus the light from a fibre optic system into the common end of a fibre optic cable. They have been CNC punched out of sheet metal, have had all of their edges de-burred to a smooth finish to prevent assembly workers cutting their hands and to protect cabling within the light fitting housing from being cut, CNC bent and had M4 bushes inserted into the holes on the return flanges. The curved form was pulled around a former shape by hand to create the curve seen here.
Looking to have some components manufactured from sheet metal? Give us a call or send in your drawings and we will be happy to help you.
