Common Mistakes When Designing Sheet Metal Parts

When manufacturing sheet metal parts, manufacturers devote much effort to fixing mistakes. Many of such mistakes are the result of poor design. 3D or 2D  CAD Drawings do not always convert well into real products. Well-designed drawings may save you a lot of time and money while increasing the efficiency of the metal fabrication process for the service provider.

Aluminium Die Casting: A Complete Guide

Aluminum die casting is a manufacturing process to make complex, precise, defined, smooth, and textured-surfaced aluminum parts with a thin wall section. It is a popular option for automotive, telecom, and products. Also, it is often used to manufacture lighting, hydraulic and electrical components. It was accomplished by using high-pressure equipment to force molten aluminium into a mold

CNC Machining for Rapid Prototyping

CNC Machining and Rapid Prototyping Prototyping, also known as prototype manufacturing, is the process where a manufacturer creates a small batch of products from digital design drawings. Manufacturers can use these functional prototypes to find flaws in the design and fix them before producing large numbers of parts. Companies can also use prototypes to participate

Common Sheet Metal Fabrication Techniques

Classification of Sheet Metal Fabrication Techniques Sheet metal fabrication techniques can largely be put into two classifications – forming and cutting. Framing procedures are those in which the connected power makes the material plastically deform, yet not to fail. Such procedures can curve or stretch the sheet into the ideal shape. Cutting procedures are those in
