Precision metal sheet prototyping or fabrication is a set of production processes used to transform sheet metal stock into functional components. The sheet metal exists between 0.006 and 0.25 inches thick.
Various processes fall under the umbrella of ‘sheet metal fabrication’. These involve bending, cutting, and punching, and you can use them individually or in tandem.
The form of cutting machine used depends upon the selected material and the sheet gauge, as well as aspects like desired tolerances and lead time.
We know which equipment is the need of which project, so you don’t have to identify a particular cutting machine.
A part that is bent, cut, and punched will cost more than a part that is just cut through a laser cutter.
However, a majority of sheet metal parts require a combination of forming processes. So, this will not enhance the cost by a drastic amount.
No. You can order one prototype or 5,000+ units.
