All About The Sheet Metal Fabrication Process And Tools

Sheet metal fabrication process 

Sheet metal fabrication is a process in which flat sheets of aluminium and steel are turned into final items or structures. This process includes the following steps 

  • Forming  
  • Cutting  
  • Bending 
  • Folding  
  • Assembling  

Firstly cutting and burning of sheet metal is done as it can be stretched and bend easily, so it can be shaped as you desire. After joining all parts and shaping the item. When the final item or product is ready it has needs of finishing. After finishing the product is checked, is it working properly or not? Make sure product is fine or perfect and working well before delivering to the client. Modern techniques are needed while using all tools during its processing to avoid any inconvenience and damage of heavy cost.  

Tools used in sheet metal fabrication  

Without tools and machinery, it is not possible to cut or shape an item. These are some special tools that are used in sheet metal fabrication in Melbourne.  

  • The band saw, Chop saw, Cutting torches and Mitre saw are used for cutting and burning in this process, these tools have sharp blades, as well as mitre, can cut on the perfect angle, cutting torch helps to use a stream of oxygen and flame. Through these tools, it is very easy to cut large or heavy sheets of metal without strong efforts.  
  • Rolling machines and hydraulic breaks and oxy-acetylene torches are used in the forming process to create breaks and rolls of final products.  
  • On metal for slow and linear fashion heat is applied to make it straight.  
  • Welding machines are used for war pages or joining. After the formation of all metal parts, these need to join them through welding. To avoid visual effects there must be a need for various techniques of welding using stout fixture. When the Colling process is started there is a need to cover the metal using sand.  
  • Brazing equipment and rivet guns are also used in the assembling process.  
  • In finishing process prime, paint and sandblasting is used.
