Metal spinning

Metal spinning consists of a disk or cylinder of sheet metal that is placed onto a mandrel on a lathe and a roller tool shapes the sheet to the mandrel shape.

Conventional spinning: constant wall thickness, but finished part will have a small diameter than the blank
Shear spinning: constant outer diameter between blank and finished part, but wall thickness will be thinner.

Bending tube

Surface treatment of sheet metal parts

The surface treatment of sheet metal parts is mainly to increase its corrosion resistance, improve appearance, enhance hardness, etc.

Costing


Surface treatment is a very important part of sheet metal manufacturing. The main purpose is to improve the surface properties of metal parts, including appearance, corrosion resistance, hardness, lubricity, etc. The treatment method usually depends on the product’s materials, design requirements, usage environment, cost considerations, etc. Common baking methods include liquid baking paint and powder baking paint, anodizing, chrome plating, oxidation, and polishing. Take all factors into consideration to select the most suitable surface treatment method. To meet the design requirements of the product and the needs of the user environment. Therefore, during the sheet metal manufacturing process, sufficient attention and attention needs to be given to surface treatment.

Electroplated sheet metal parts

Through a chemical reaction, a layer of other metal is attached to the surface of the workpiece to achieve a certain beautifying effect.

Brushed sheet metal parts

A surface treatment method that uses grinding products to form lines on the surface of the workpiece to provide a decorative effect.

Polished sheet metal parts

The surface of sheet metal parts is made smooth through mechanical or chemical methods to increase its appearance and texture.

Anodized sheet metal parts

By forming an oxide layer on the surface of sheet metal parts, it improves its hardness and corrosion resistance.

What kind of surface treatment do you require?

Selecting the appropriate surface treatment method depends on factors such as the sheet metal part’s use, material and requirements, as well as production costs

About the materials used in sheet metal fabrication

How to choose suitable materials for sheet metal parts

The mechanical properties of materials used for sheet metal fabrication are the same as the base metal, so your decision of material should be largely based on choosing an appropriate material according to your needs. However, the materials most suitable for sheet metal fabrication are those that you can manipulate and do not lose their physical properties. Aluminum and steel are examples of such materials.

Additionally, as sheet metal fabrication projects often include bending, machining or welding, there are a number of factors to pay particular attention to when selecting an appropriate material. These include:

Tensile strength
Corrosion resistance
Weldability
Weight
Machinability
Cost
Ductility (elongation at break)

* The aluminum series 5xxx is more suited to sheet metal fabrication than the aluminum series 6xxx, commonly used for CNC machined parts. This is because aluminum series 5xxx is more ductile and tears less easily when bent.

Tolerances

Sheet metal fabrication tolerances are often slightly larger compared to CNC machining tolerances, as bends in the material can cause the material to stretch. It’s important to note that the more processes a part undergoes, for instance if a part has multiple bends, the more difficult it becomes to achieve tight tolerances.

We offer the tolerances displayed on the left, which are generally acceptable in the industry. Although higher tolerances are achievable, extremely high tolerances can make a process more difficult and significantly drive up costs.

Our Clients

Our customers come from North America, South America, Europe, Oceania and Asia, and we look forward to getting win-win cooperation with customers all over the world.
