Nowadays the sheet metal processing is a widely used technical operation. Sheet metal processing has become very common mainly because it is convenient and straightforward compared to other processing technologies. It also can help enterprises to increase economic benefit. The manufacturing process can directly affect the cost of producing parts, and the parts to be sampled are usually in small batches. If there is no indication of a specific amount of subsequent processing, we will usually use sheet metal processing to finish the process. The sheet metal processing is not as good as stamping if there are batch sheet metal parts. Why has sheet metal processing been widely used? What are the advantages of sheet metal processing?
Generally speaking, sheet metal fabrication uses plank to make chimney, iron bucket, oil tank oil pot, ventilation pipe, bend, size head, funnel shape, etc. The main working procedures are shear, bend buckle edge, bend molding, welding, riveting, etc., which require specific geometry knowledge. Sheet metal parts are sheet metal hardware. The parts can be processed by stamping, bending, stretching, and other processing methods. A general definition is a part whose thickness does not change during the machining process—corresponding to the casting parts, forging parts, machining processing parts, etc.
We should understand the contents of the sheet metal processing process first before we understand sheet metal processing. It has cutting, deburring, bending, secondary processing, spraying, and other processing technology. These processes are done manually by removing burrs, and the rest of the processes are completed by machine. Some precision sheet metal processing manufacturers think that these processes can be mechanized and automated through positioning fixtures. Therefore it can significantly improve the processing efficiency and production quality of parts. Cutting equipment is an obvious example. The CNC punch, laser machine, shearing machine, and others of cutting equipment adopt positioning fixture automation. This equipment has set the origin X and Y coordinates before leaving the factory and used CNC punch to solve the sheet metal processing problem.
1. The number of stamping operations is convenient and straightforward. It is beneficial to the workpiece with a complex shape. However, the thickness should be within the range of machinability. The circuit board can be processed automatically after the program is completed. In addition, to invest a specific coast in the early stage, the low input cost at the later stage can help enterprises to increase economic benefits.
2. The quality of a finished product. The quality of stamping parts is excellent, the stamping parts not only have high precision and flatness, but they also can make the product consistent.
3. CNC punching machines can achieve mass production of parts. It has very high production efficiency. CNC sheet metal fabrication has fast speed, good quality, and various processing methods, such as single punch, continuous punch, and array punch.
