The basic difference between metal processing and sheet meta

I want to share
Hardware processing and although only one word difference, but the two have substantial differences. So what are the differences between sheet metal processing and hardware processing? Here is Foshan Xinling Hardware for everyone to explain.
 First, the introduction of sheet metal

The sheet metal refers to the skill of processing the thick sheet. The sheet metal processing and the hardware have substantial differences, mainly the cutting and welding and other production processes. The hardware side includes natural sheet metal and various sheet metal parts.

Second, what is sheet metal processing?

Stamping is the most common method in sheet metal processing, and the stamping skills are roughly divided into two categories: separate processes and forming processes.

1. The separate process is to make the stamping parts and the blanks separate from each other along a certain contour line in the stamping process. The quality of the cross-section of the stamping parts must also meet certain requirements. These requirements are all determined by the needs of the previous customers.

2. The forming process is to make the stamping blanks plastically deform under the condition of no damage, and transform into the shape of the finished product, and should also be satisfied with the requirements of scale and public service.

Sheet metal is an inductive cold working skill for metal sheets, including shearing, punching/cutting/compositing, folding, welding, riveting, splicing, forming, etc. The obvious feature is the same part thickness. Generally, the basic equipment includes a shearing machine, a CNC punching machine, a plasma, a water jet cutting machine, a laminating machine, a bending machine, and various auxiliary equipment such as an uncoiler, a leveling machine, a deburring machine, a spot welding machine, and the like.
 Third, hardware introduction

Hardware refers to the general name of five kinds of metal materials: gold, silver, copper, iron and tin. Hardware is the mother of industry, the foundation of national defense, and the products produced by hardware materials are usually divided into two categories: large hardware and small hardware. .

1. Large hardware refers to steel plate, steel bar, flat iron, universal angle steel, channel iron, I-shaped iron and various types of steel materials.

2, small hardware is the construction of hardware, tin, lock nails, wire, steel wire mesh, wire scissors, home hardware, all kinds of things and so on.

From the nature and use of hardware, it should be divided into eight categories: steel materials, non-ferrous metal materials, mechanical parts, transmission devices, auxiliary things, work things, building hardware, and home hardware. Each type of hardware is different. The use of the role, can be specifically selected according to their own needs.
