Looking for a sheet metal working company that can deliver a reliable sheet metal work service in the Bournemouth region of Dorset.
3D modelling of sheet metal enclosures
Using 3D solid modelling with Radan sheet metal software is a great way to ensure that components align correctly before having to cut any sheet metal. Any problems with the customer’s design can be highlighted and corrected before committing to production. The correct developed blank sizes can be generated from the 3D model allowing for material thickness, material type and the production machine being used to manufacture the parts. V and F Sheet Metal have been using Radan 3D solid modelling software since 2001 and have lots of experience in handling complex models, assemblies and fabrications for their customers.
Folded sheet metal work assembly
Here we have an image of developed blanks within a CNC punch nest for our Trumpf 3000 machine. Using Radan sheet metal CAD/CAM software we can layout the individual parts, tool them for CNC punching and produce the most efficient CNC punching nest to get the best fit of parts from a sheet of metal. All CNC programs are held on our system server so they are ready instantly for any repeat batch work or design issue changes.
CNC punching nest of sheet metal parts
The final sheet metal chassis and cover have now been CNC punched, edge de-burred, folded and had their inserts pressed in. All holes align perfectly and the job is ready to be shipped to the customer. These parts have been produced in batches of 100 parts and are typical of the sheet metal work that we produce every week for companies right across the UK. If you are looking for a sheet metal working company to help you with your designs and make the parts simpler to reduce production costs please give us a call on 01489 577786 or e-mail your drawings to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help you.
