Customer was from Canada and ordered those sheet metal parts for their mechanical systems. Rapid prototype prior to low volume production was made to test the manufacturing capability, particularly bending tolerance.
Precision laser cutting the parts. The cutting speed was set properly to minimize the cut burrs that were needed to be removed manually.
Precision bending the parts. Seamless alignment of the three bent up sides required high precision laser cutting as well as bending.
precision sheet metal partsBent parts prior to welding the two straight seams. Different angles from 0° to 90° and 180° could be bent well, bending tolerance around ± 1°.
precision sheet meal parts manufacturingWelded and cleaned parts. Every part was carefully cleaned by removing the laser cut and welded splatters as well as the grease residues.
precision sheet meal parts fabricationPackaged parts for shipping. We always paid high attention to packaging that played a increasingly important role in global purchasing.
