We are also equipped with an entire fleet of shipping and delivery trucks, ensuring you we’ll personally deliver your products from our manufacturing facility.
Let us show you why Bayview has become a name synonymous with superior quality.
How Does Metal Fabrication Work?
It all starts with you letting us know your project specifications. This includes the quantity, exact measurements, types of metals and the date when you’ll need these. On our end, we’ll go ahead and design it and show it to you for your approval. Once the design is approved, the manufacturing process begins. We will then start the process on-site and make sure that we’ll personally check the project to make sure that all of your requirements are met. Your project will be taken care of our by skilled technicians, using only the best and state-of-the-art technology like welding and CNC punching machines – making sure that we’ll only produce only the best quality of products for our clients.
CNC Turret Punch Press - What Is It?
CNC or Computer Numerical Controlled is a sheet metal fabrication equipment that makes use of different sizes and tool shapes to punch or even cut sheet metal parts. These machines make the entire process faster and more efficient. They’re not just limited to cutting and punching, they can also be used for other forming projects such as embossing, tapping, knockouts, small bends, countersinking and many others. Our machinery has a great reputation and is known to be the best in the city – with more than 58 stations, which lets us punch sheets with sizes 0.040 inches to 4.500 inches.
What are the Benefits of Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication?
The main advantages may include but are not limited to:
The ability to create almost anything, from basic designs and sizes to the most complicated designs, big or small.
This process is known to effectively control the quality of sheet metals from its design, dimensional tolerance, and shape.
Cheaper since the final product is accurate and will surely meet the dimensions you have provided. No additional work needed to adjust sizes and shapes.
The customers can provide their input since you’ll be personally working with skilled staff from our custom sheet fabrication company.
With you or your staff working with our staff, we can work on your project in a more efficient and faster manner.
Custom sheet metal fabrication also assures you that the product will be more durable and useful. Your project will be designed and created to make sure that it meets your working conditions and environment, with other factors including stress, chemicals used, temperature, vibrations, and many others.
If you opt for custom sheet metal fabrication, you can easily optimize your project’s design, making sure that it’s compatible with your needs. With that in mind, this will increase your workflow’s productivity and efficiency.
DFM or Design for Manufacturability is where the client, that’s you, and the metal sheet fabrication team, that’s us, carefully examine the design, resources, manufacturing capability to make sure that the entire manufacturing of this project is effective, and within the budget.
Additionally, this process also takes into consideration the amount or quantity that needs to be produced to achieve the quality that each customer requires. With that in mind, this process also examines:
Type of Material
Quality Testing Compliance
How is metal fabrication different from metal stamping?
Metal stamping can be defined as any type of project requiring metal forming. Other than stamping, other operations and actions may be required for the final part, which includes but are not limited to pressing, bending, folding and stretching. Most metal stamping operations make use of a punch press machine, mostly with custom-made dies and tools, that will then turn a metal sheet into a specific shape, or include a pattern or other characteristic that the customer needs. Generally speaking, metal stamping is a quick and cost-effective way to produce parts in huge quantities.
Metal fabrication, on the other hand, is more focused on manufacturing metal parts that produces 3d results that are achieved through bending, cutting and/or other assembly methods. Metal fabrication may require a more specialized machine for this, such as CNC press brakes, laser cutters, turret presses, and welding machines. It is usually a more cost-effective process to produce metal parts in smaller quantities since the tooling process with the use of stamping can be expensive. As compared to stamping, fabrication is also suited for customers who are looking for more design flexibility, this is because once the process is done, there’s no tooling that needs changing in case some of your designs require some revisions.
What is a CNC Press Brake Machine?
CNC is short for Computer Numerical Control. On the other hand, a press brake machine is one that’s used to bend sheet metal parts. Combined, this machine can bend metal parts but is controlled through a computer, with the use an extensively programmed computer software. CNC press brake machines are configured with programs that allow you to repeat the process, allowing the operator to control everything from the computer, rather than controlling everything from the machine or doing things manually. Operations that can be controlled from the computer may include the die selection, pressure and back gauge settings.
A press brake machine, how does this work?
In summary, it clamps sheet metals and is placed in the middle of various dies and punches. This process is the one responsible for creating and forming the bends on the metal. Back gauges, on the other hand, is the one responsible for determining the bends’ sizes. Other parts such as the punches, RAM and dies are the ones used to determine the radius and the angles of the metal bends. These CNC press brakes perform the calculations on the operator’s behalf, resulting to a more accurate and more efficient end-result.
