How to choose sheet metal cutting&bending?

 

If you are lloking for a tool or sheet metal working machines for your metal fabricationg job, you should be clear for the following tips:

 

Thickness
One of the most important decisions when working with sheet metal is deciding what thickness you’ll need. Similar to wire, sheet metal thickness is measured in gauges, with a higher number indicating a thinner sheet. To measure the thickness, you can use a sheet metal gauge, which will show you thickness in both gauge number and thousandths of an inch. One important note, however, is that ferrous and non-ferrous sheet metals of the same gauge have different thicknesses, so you’ll need one gauge for ferrous metals, and one for non-ferrous.


Bending
Bending sheet metal can be tricky, but with the right tool it’s easy. Those who work with it regularly are likely to have a sheet metal bending brake in their workshop..

Using the edge of your workbench, a length of wood, two clamps, and a mallet, you can fashion a rudimentary bending brake. Mark a bend line and place the sheet metal on the edge of your bench. Next place the wood parallel and slightly behind the bending line. Clamp the wood on top of the metal to the workbench. Finally, bend the sheet up by hand to the angle desired. If you want a sharp 90° bend, tap along the crease with a mallet.

 

Metal sheet Cutting
Many different tools cut sheet metal, and each has its own strengths and weaknesses. But one sheet metal cutting machine will be a good options for your job, normally one metal sheet cutting machine will have NC controller, can make program and position for your different plate cutting job, it will also have quick cutting blades clearance adjustment for different thick metal cutting, which can get good cutting performance with this function.
