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.

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
