Rolling mild steel rings
A simple rolled mild steel ring for a light fitting manufactured from 0.9mm thick material. This simple component has been CNC punched from sheet metal, rolled into a ring and then stitch welded at the joints to produce a circular band. Once the bands were all welded together they were then welded to a perforated disc to produce a vented top panel for a high bay light fitting. If you look carefully at the picture you can see small tabs on the edges of the rings which have been designed to engage in slots on the perforated rings to speed up welding alignment. You will see this technique again and again in our blog posts as it’s such a powerful way of ensuring accuracy in welding and speeding up production rates without costing a lot of money.
Perhaps you have a sheet metal projects that is welded together from several parts and this technique could save time and money. We are always keen to help you and would be happy to take a look at your design and see if we can save you money. Please call us on 01489 577786 or send your designs to firstname.lastname@example.org
