With the development of society, stamping products have been applied to all walks of life, and stamping products have a variety of materials. It has a wide range of uses, ranging from automobiles and ships to small electronic accessories, including stamping parts. What are the characteristics and applications of sheet metal stamping parts?
In the stamping process, highly specialized computer-aided drawing and manufacturing procedures are used to transform sheet metal into complex parts. Sheet metal stamping can quickly and efficiently produce high-quality, flexible and heavy-duty parts. The results are very precise, and they are generally more reliable and consistent than manual processing. The following industries use components created by sheet metal stamping: automotive, renewable energy, medical, industrial, aerospace, hardware, home improvement.
Sheet metal stampings generally refer to the plasticity of metals. For thin metal plates with a certain thickness, a single stamping part is manufactured through processes such as cutting, stamping, and bending, and then assembled through welding, riveting, etc. to complete the assembly. Its characteristic is that the thickness of the same part is the same.
Because sheet metal stamping parts have the characteristics of light weight, high strength, electrical conductivity, low cost, and good mass production performance, they are currently widely used in petrochemical, metallurgy, electronic appliances, communications, automotive industry, medical equipment and other fields. For example, in daily products such as computer cases and mobile phones, sheet metal stamping is an indispensable processing technology. With the increasing application of sheet metal, the design of sheet metal stamping parts has become a very important part of the product development process. Mechanical engineers must be proficient in the design skills of sheet metal stamping parts, so that the designed sheet metal parts can not only meet the requirements of product function and appearance, but also meet the requirements of convenient production and processing and cost-effectiveness.
In the design process of sheet metal stamping parts, in addition to the need to express the shape and size of the part with engineering drawings, it is also necessary to use the unfolded drawing of the sheet metal to represent the sheet metal outline shape and size before the production and processing of the sheet metal part. It is used to guide the blanking, layout and production of sheet metal stamping parts. According to the requirements of the three-dimensional shape of the part, the process of drawing the contour of the flattened shape is the unfolding pattern of the sheet metal part. Mastering the correct and effective method of sheet metal parts exhibition and sampling can not only ensure the accuracy of sheet metal stamping parts, but also improve processing efficiency and save costs.
