CNC bending sheet metal work
Now we have had our new Safan e-Brake in production for a couple of months we can already see the advantages of its quiet, quick no nonsense approach to folding sheet metal work. We have got to grips with the CNC programming system really quickly and are already seeing some common parts repeating with stored CNC programs coming in very handy. The ability to swap jobs up to 1M long between the Safan and our 2 Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes will be really useful at busy times to help reduce production bottle necks. These mild steel housings were one of the first major bending projects to come off the new CNC press brake but we have already folded stainless steel, aluminium and pre-painted mild steel parts. We are certainly looking forward to a busy month in August.
Mild steel formed sections
These mild steel formed sections are part of a series of items manufactured for heater air curtain units. They have been laser cut and then folded up on our Trumpf 7036 CNC press brakes using a multi-bend programming technique to create the curved sections out of a series of flats. We have produced these before but this time the volume was bigger and some design changes were made which is easy to accommodate with these machines as the old CNC program is saved on the system server and easily modified ready for the latest batch of parts. We can use this to save the cost of special form tools on a host of material types and gauges. Please give us a call and we will be happy to look at your sheet metal work projects and see if this technique can help you.
Folded sheet metal chassis housings
Sheet metal chassis housings such as these are typical of the work that V and F Sheet Metal make on a regular basis. These chassis were made from zintec coated mild steel but they could just as well have been made from aluminium alloys or stainless steel. Volumes from just a few off samples to many hundreds in a batch are quite typical for us and with our CNC punching, CNC laser cutting and range of CNC press brakes anything from the simplest to the most complex parts can be taken on for you.
