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. In fact, the quality of low volume parts was much better than the prototype.
Laser Cut Parts. The sheet metal wall thickness we can laser cut was from 0.2 to 10.0 mm, and laser cutting tolerance was normally ± 0.1 mm.
Bent Parts. Different angles of straight and round corners could be bent well, our bending tolerance was usually about ± 0.1 mm as well.
