Sheet metal projects in August 2016
Laser cut 5mm thick aluminium sheet metal project
Here’s a great example of a sheet metal laser cutting project we have produced for a customer of ours using 5mm thick 5251 aluminium alloy. These components were used to create an end cap for sections of aluminium extrusion on a building project. The Trumpf 3030 fibre laser cutting machine we use made quick work of these parts cutting all features with nitrogen for a clean edge with minimal de-burring needed on the reverse edges. You can see for yourself just how effectively the parts can be laid out on the sheet to get the best possible material use and cheapest price.
Spot welded sheet metal assemblies manufactured in August 2016
Another sheet metal project that was manufactured in August 2016 was to make a series of zintec coated mild steel components and then spot weld them all together. These spot welded assemblies are used in an air conditioning unit and we often make in batches of 50-100 at a time. All the parts have been CNC punched, CNC bent and then spot welded to make up the fabricated assemblies and they are typical of the sheet metal projects we have manufactured during August 2016.
Zinc plated sheet metal working project August 2016
These zinc plated components have been laser cut from 3mm thick mild steel and formed to shape using standard CNC press brake tooling. We used oxygen as the cutting assist gas on these parts as any sign of edge oxidisation will have been removed in the zinc plating treatment process during the first acid dip stage.
All these sheet metal projects were manufactured during August 2016 in our factory in Fareham, Hampshire, UK. If you have a sheet metal project that you want to review or perhaps a new sheet metal project that you wish to have an estimate for costing then please give us a call on 01489 587776 or send our sheet metal engineering team your drawings to email@example.com. We can accept DXF, DWG, PDF, STEP and SAT files direct from your design department.
