Sheet metal working is a common metal processing technology, which is widely used in industrial production, machinery manufacturing, automobile manufacturing, aviation manufacturing and other fields. In this article, we will introduce the basic knowledge of sheet metal working, common tools and methods, as well as related application cases.
I. Definition and Classification of Sheet Metal Working
Sheet metal processing is the process of cutting, bending, forming and other processing operations of sheet metal or tubing to make parts or assemblies of the desired shape and size. Sheet metal processing can be divided into two types, manual processing and CNC processing, depending on the processing method.
II. Principles and Processes of Sheet Metal Processing
The principle of sheet metal processing is to make use of the plastic deformation of metal, through cutting, bending, forming and other processing operations, to make metal sheets or tubes into parts or assemblies of the required shape and size. The process of sheet metal processing generally includes the following steps:
Material Selection: Selection of suitable metal sheets or tubes according to the processing requirements.
Cutting: Use cutting equipment to cut the metal sheet or tube into the required shape and size.
Bending: Use bending equipment to bend the metal sheet or tube into the required shape and angle.
Forming: Use forming equipment to make metal sheets or tubes into the required shapes and sizes.
Inspection: Inspection of completed parts or assemblies to ensure compliance with requirements.
