Sheet Metal processing is a comprehensive cold working process for metal sheets (typically below 6 mm), including cutting, punching/ cutting/ compounding, folding, welding, riveting, splicing, shaping (e.g., automobile body), and the like. The obvious characteristic is that the thickness of the same part is consistent. The product processed by the Sheet Metal processing is called a Sheet Metal element.
In general, the most important three steps for Sheet Metal processing are shearing, punching/ cutting and folding.
The processing of the metal plate is called the Sheet Metal processing. In particular, a chimney, an iron barrel, an oil tank oil pot, a ventilation pipeline, an elbow size head, a celestial sphere, a funnel shape and the like are made of a plate material, and the main working procedures are shearing, bending and buckling, bending, forming, welding, riveting, and the like, and a certain geometrical knowledge is required.
Sheet Metal processing is sometimes also known as sheet metal, typically by stamping a number of metal sheets through a manual or die press to form a desired shape and size, and may further form a more complex part by welding or a small number of machining, Such as a chimney, an iron sheet furnace, and a car shell, commonly used in the family, are gold pieces.
Sheet Metal processing are sheet metal parts, that is, parts that can be machined by stamping, bending, drawing and other means. A general definition is that the thickness of sheet metal parts is the same in the process of sheet metal processing. Corresponding to casting, forgings, machined parts, such as the outside of the car iron shell is sheet metal parts, stainless steel kitchen utensils are also sheet metal parts.
The Sheet Metal processing has the characteristics of light weight, high strength, conduction (can be used for electromagnetic shielding), low cost, good mass production performance and the like, and is widely applied in the fields of electronic appliances, communication, automobile industry, medical devices and the like, Sheet Metal is an essential component.
