Sheet metal manufacturing projects can come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, so let’s take a look.
mild steel formed brackets
When creating a a complex shape with curves in sheet metal a form tool can sometimes be a solution. Being able to press a shape in one operation will always save production time and therefore money. Working with the customer we were able to construct a form tool created from laser cut laminates. Saving the cost of expensive solid tooling is always a good idea. With the ability to make changes to shapes and tooling this is a powerful technique for small batch sub-contract engineering.
zintec folded brackets
Some sheet metal manufacturing projects are perfect for us. Using CNC punching and CNC bending these thin gauge zintec brackets are a typical sheet metal project. Apply our latest manufacturing processes we soon had these parts sorted. The biggest advantage for us is the ability to change design details whenever needed without tooling costs. A simple change to either a CNC punch of bend program that can take just a few minutes is all that’s needed.
Welded and zinc plated fabrications
This sheet metal project was a collaboration with the customer. They free issued the machined solid steel blocks and pins. We manufactured the mild steel plates with our laser cutter and then welded them together. We also organised to have the finished assembly zinc plated.
