Let’s Try To Know More About Sheet Metal Parts Service
1, What is sheet metal?
Sheet metal is a comprehensive cold working process for metal sheets (usually below 6mm). Through shearing, punching, cutting, compositing, folding, riveting, splicing, forming (such as car body), and other processing methods, the metal sheet can be processed into various shapes, then used in rapid prototyping manufacturing and products development.
As the application of sheet metal becomes more and more extensive, the design of sheet metal parts has become an essential part of the product development process. Mechanical engineers must be proficient in the design skills of sheet metal parts so that the design of sheet metal meets the requirements of the product. The conditions of function and appearance can make stamping die manufacturing simple and low cost.
2, Sheet metal advantages
Sheet metal has the characteristics of lightweight, high strength, electrical conductivity (can be used for electromagnetic shielding), low cost, and excellent mass production performance.
3, What is the sheet metal used for?
Sheet metal parts have been widely used in the fields of electronic appliances, communications, automotive industry, medical equipment, etc. For example, in computer cases, mobile phones, MP3, sheet metal is an indispensable component.
Sheet metal is also used in car and truck (truck) bodywork, aircraft fuselages and wings, medical tables, building (building) roofs, and many other applications.
4, Sheet metal materials
Many different metals can be made into sheet metal, such as aluminum, brass, Stainless steel, and titanium. For decorative purposes, some essential metal plates include silver, gold, and platinum (platinum metal is also used as a catalyst).
