Cutting a sheet of metal is a crucial step in the fabrication process, and at CS Mold, we specialize in achieving precise cuts with finesse.
Sheet metal service
Sheet metal fabrication is a manufacturing process that involves shaping and manipulating sheet metal into various components and structures. Sheet metal, typically in the form of flat and thin sheets, is cut, bent, and assembled to create a wide range of products used in industries such as automotive, aerospace, construction, electronics, and more.
CS Mold offers precision sheet metal fabrication service for our clients. We can finish your prototypes and components in as fast as 1 day.
The Process Of Sheet Metal Fabrication Involves Several Key Steps:
A detailed design or blueprint of the desired part or product is created, specifying dimensions, tolerances, material requirements, and manufacturing techniques.
The appropriate type and thickness of sheet metal are chosen based on the specific application and desired properties. Common sheet metal materials include steel, aluminum, stainless steel, copper, and brass.
The sheet metal is cut into the desired shape using various cutting methods such as shearing, laser cutting, or waterjet cutting. This step ensures the sheet metal is prepared for further forming processes.
The cut sheet metal is shaped, bent, and formed, by using techniques such as press braking, rolling, stamping, or deep drawing. This process gives the sheet metal the desired geometry and dimensions.
Multiple sheet metal components may need to be joined together through techniques like welding, riveting, clinching, or adhesive bonding. Assembly processes are carried out to create the final product or structure.
The fabricated sheet metal product may undergo surface treatments such as cleaning, deburring, sanding, polishing, painting, or coating to enhance its appearance, durability, or corrosion resistance.
