Q2: What is a sheet metal structure?

2018-08-16

A Sheet metal structure is the processing and fabrication of thin sheet metal. The thickness of the finger plate is much smaller than that of its width. It has poor lateral bending resistance and is not suitable for applications under lateral bending loads. Sheet metal is metal for its material, but because of its special geometric shape, the thickness of the sheet is very small, so the processing technology of sheet metal has its particularity. There are three kinds of processing technology related to sheet metal parts:
(1) blanking: it includes cutting and blanking.
(2) forming: it includes bending, folding, curling and deep drawing.
(3) connection: it includes welding, bonding, etc. The structural design of thin plate components should mainly consider the requirements and characteristics of processing technology. In addition, we should pay attention to the size of the component.
Thin plate components are widely used because thin plates have the following advantages:
(1) it is easy to deform, so that a variety of components can be made by simple processing technology.
(2) thin plate components are light weight.
(3) the machining capacity is small, because the surface quality of the sheet is high, the dimension tolerance of the thickness direction is small, and the surface of the sheet does not need to be processed.
(4) it is easy to cut and weld to make large and complex components.
(5) shape standard, convenient for automatic processing.
