What are Sheet Metal Products?
Sheet metal parts are products processed by the sheet metal process, and we can’t live without sheet metal parts everywhere. Sheet metal parts are made by filament power winding, laser cutting, heavy machining, metal bonding, metal drawing, plasma cutting, precision welding, roll forming, sheet metal bending and forming, die forging, and water jet cutting.
A definition in a foreign professional journal can define sheet metal as: Sheet metal is a comprehensive cold working process for thin metal sheets (usually below 6mm), including shearing, punching/cutting/composite, folding, welding, riveting, splicing, forming (e.g. auto body), etc.. The distinguishing feature is the consistent thickness of the same part.
Sheet metal characteristics:
With the characteristics of light weight, high strength, electrical conductivity (able to be used for electromagnetic shielding), low cost, and good performance in mass production, sheet metal parts are widely used in electronic appliances, communication, automotive industry, medical devices, etc. For example, in computer cases, cell phones, and MP3, sheet metal parts are an essential component.
As the application of sheet metal becomes more and more widespread, the design of sheet metal parts becomes a very important part of the product development process. Mechanical engineers must master the design skills of sheet metal parts, so that the designed sheet metal can meet the requirements of both the function and appearance of the product, and also make the stamping die manufacturing simple and low cost.
