Sheet metal covers
Brass display panel covers
Sheet metal brass covers
Here’s an eye catching example of brass sheet metal covers in production at V and F Sheet Metal. These brass covers make up the front of an illuminated display board system completed with a 304 stainless steel back panel or optional 316 stainless steel front cover. These brass covers were manufactured from CZ108 brass sheet with a protective peelable plastic film. The plastic film helps to keep the material scratch free in production. Once the corner joints have been welded up they are cleaned off smooth back to the parent metal and bright polished all over before being clear wet sprayed to protect them from most atmospheric corrosion.
Zintec sheet metal covers
Sheet metal Zintec covers
These Zintec coated mild steel covers were recently manufactured in our Fareham factory. They are used in some pumping equipment and cover the electronics protecting it from the atmosphere that its working in. The Zintec covers were CNC punched and CNC bent up on our Trumpf manufacturing equipment and then powder coated for our customer. All the bends of the covers were simple bent tight without any welding as the finish covers were screwed down in place locking all the joints together.
Pre-coated mild steel cover
Sheet metal pre-coated mild steel cover
This small cover was developed to cover a motion sensor on a T5 light fitting. The cover was CNC punched with a series of slotted lines allowing the cover to be hand folded over the sensor covering completely before being screwed down. This type of “easy-bend” design is useful in a number of applications where a standard press braked bend cannot be achieved or when a final bend is needed after some equipment has been inserted into the cover. The material shown here is a pre-coated white mild steel sheet with a peelable plastic film and is a cost effective alternative to mild steel and powder coating.
