Sheet metal boxes manufactured in Hampshire
These small boxes have been CNC punched with all the holes and outer profile produced on out Trumpf CNc punch presses in Hampshire UK. You can see that we have punched into the side walls of the boxes a knock out feature for the final customer to push out if an electrical cable access is needed. The boxes were de-burred and then folded up on one of our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes. The box has 4 M4 hank bushes inserted into the side wall as fixing points for the lid. The tight corner joints were then TiG welded together and finally cleaned off smooth before powder coating.
Mild steel sheet metal boxes like these are typical of the smaller sheet metal work projects that we specialise in here at V and F Sheet Metal and can be seen manufacturing every day of the week. There is a great web page on the site showing all the stages of manufacturing a sheet metal box fabrication from the CNC programming right through all the manufacturing stages, just follow the link for more details.
