The importance of sheet metal processing technology:

The processing of sheet metal is called sheet metal processing, and sheet metal processing is an important process for forming sheet metal products. Sheet metal processing includes traditional cutting and blanking, blanking, bending and forming methods and process parameters, as well as new stamping techniques and new processes.

The traditional sheet metal processing consists of four main processes: shearing, punching/cutting, folding, and welding. The main processes of the latest new 4 sheet metal processing are: excitation, punching, folding, and welding.


The main process of sheet metal processing is also a layer-by-layer upgrade over time. The latest process is described below.

Laser: Laser cutting is the main equipment for cutting materials in sheet metal processing. It has high processing speed, high precision, short cycle (no need to open mold), and can process various shapes. It is the main processing method for sheet metal processing.

Punching: Parts processed by sheet metal cannot be flat-shaped. It is necessary to punch a convex hull, a bud, a blind (a kind of vent), a bridge, a buckle, and the like. All need to be processed. Rushing is not the previous punch, but the CNC punching machine, which can install dozens of molds, programmable, fast, and can also assist the laser cutting machine to cut.

Bending: Compared to the previous, only the device is updated. There are CNC bending machine, bending center (manipulator assisted bending), CNC folding machine and so on.

Welding: Compared to the previous one, it only adds equipment. TIG welding, carbon dioxide gas shielded welding, welding robots, etc. for thin plate welding have been added.


With the upgrading of the main processes of sheet metal processing, the upgrading of equipment, the quality of sheet metal processing products has been greatly improved, and the processing speed and response are faster. The sheet metal processing industry is also progressing with the development of society, and its role in the new era is becoming more and more important.
