Characteristics And Advantages of The Sheet Metal Manufacturing Process

Sheet metal manufacturing is a production process in which we process sheet metal to form parts or products of a certain shape and structure, its characteristics are high production efficiency, low cost, and stable quality. we adopt machines to manufacture sheet metal, the efficiency of this machine manufacturing is higher than manual manufacturing. At the same time, because of the strong plasticity of metal materials, we adopt different technological methods to achieve complex and precise shapes and structures to reach the needs of different fields.

Sheet metal manufacturing process

The basic principle of sheet metal manufacturing is to make various shapes and sizes of parts by cutting, stamping, bending, stretching, welding, and other processes. In the sheet metal manufacturing process, metal sheets are usually processed into sheets of plates, we adopt different process methods to make these plates combine into parts with specific shapes and structures.

Sheet metal manufacturing process

The key processes of sheet metal manufacturing include the following:

Sheet metal manufacturing process

Cutting: Cutting is cutting sheet metal to the desired shape or size.

Stamping: Stamping is the use of molds to extrude and deform metal sheets to form parts with a certain shape.

Bending and stretching: Bending and stretching is the bending and stretching of metal sheets through molds or machines to form complex shapes and structures.

Welding: Welding is to connect different metal sheets or parts by melting and cooling them together.

In addition to these basic processes, sheet metal manufacturing also includes some special technologies, such as spot welding, laser welding, argon arc welding, submerged arc welding, etc. These technologies can be selected and used according to different needs and application scenarios.



Common surface treatments for sheet metal manufacturing

Sheet metal manufacturing process

Spray: Spraying is a surface treatment that increases features such as color, durability, and corrosion resistance by applying paint to the surface of a part and allowing it to dry. According to the use of the product and the required function, in the control panel, mechanical equipment cover plate, and other sheet metal to increase the color, weather resistance, and corrosion resistance, we generally choose “powder spraying”, which is uniform spraying powder coating.

electroplate: we adopt electroplate sheet metal parts to increase corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and decoration. The type of plating treatment varies depending on the material. Sometimes we consider a certain degree of corrosion resistance, so we choose stainless steel and stainless steel sheet metal parts are rarely electroplated in the subsequent process.

anodizing: Anodizing is a surface treatment, when the material is aluminum alloy, anodizing can be applied to improve corrosion resistance and wear resistance. However specialist suppliers can also add colors such as blue, green, and red.

Laser marking: We can decorate on the surface by shining a weak laser, we can also add information such as product numbers and bar codes by laser marking, The information is written directly on the surface of the material and will not disappear unless erased by polishing. In recent years, the demand for identifying information such as part traceability and manufacturing lot numbers has been increasing, and the need for such information is also increasing.

DMTC has high-precision equipment and professional technicians. we can make unique customized surface treatments for different material scenes, at the same time of processing, we can always track and timely feedback on the information that you need.


Application of sheet metal manufacturing process

Sheet metal manufacturing is widely used in electronic appliances, communications, the automotive industry, medical equipment, and other fields, such as car parts, aircraft fuselage and wings, computer cases, and so on. In a word, it is very widely useful in the metal manufacturing process, it makes our life more convenient.

With the continuous development of science and technology, the sheet metal manufacturing process is also constantly developing and improving. New technologies and new methods such as digital manufacturing technology, intelligent production systems, and 3D printing continue to emerge, this provides more possibilities and development space for sheet metal manufacturing. In the future, the sheet metal manufacturing process will play an important role in more fields and make greater contributions to promoting economic development and social progress. If you need professional sheet metal manufacturing products, DMTC will be a good choice for you.
