What is Sheet Metal Fabrication Engineering
Sheet metal processing engineering refers to a comprehensive cold working process for thin metal sheets (usually under 6mm), including shearing, stamping, bending, welding, riveting, splicing, molding and other processes to produce the desired shape and size. This type of processing is widely used in manufacturing industries such as automotive, aviation, electronics and electrical appliances. The distinctive feature of sheet metal processing is that the thickness of the same part is consistent and remains unchanged during processing. Its processing generally includes steps such as shearing, bending, stamping, welding, etc., and requires certain geometric knowledge.
Sheet metal processing equipment mainly includes metal presses, shears and punches and other general-purpose machinery and equipment, the molds used are some simple and universal tooling molds and special molds for special workpieces with special molding. It is characterized by concentrated processes, high degree of mechanization and easy to realize automated production. In the process of sheet metal processing, attention needs to be paid to material selection, process design, quality control and other aspects.
In conclusion, sheet metal processing engineering is a kind of processing technology for thin metal plates, which is characterized by high precision, light weight, diversification and high efficiency, and can meet the needs of different fields.
