A quick preview of the main manufacturing facilities here at V and F Sheet Metal
CNC laser cutting
Using a Trumpf 3030 3KW fibre laser able to cut mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium, brass and copper. Maximum sheet size is 3M x 1.5M, please ask for thickness details as this depends on material type.
Using both Trumpf 200 and 3000 CNC punch presses to punch out all the same materials covered by laser cutting but also anodised reflector materials, pre-painted steels and plastic coated materials. Maximum sheet size is 3M x 1.5M, please ask for thickness details as this depends on material type.
Using both Trumpf 7036, Edwards Pearson and Guifil CNC press brakes to bend all the materials cut by laser cutting and CNC punching. Maximum bend length is 2.5M.
