Metal processing is increasingly crucial in today’s manufacturing landscape. It satisfies the needs of numerous manufacturing companies across industries by fulfilling their unique requests and needs for metal components. If a proper method is applied, metal fabricators can customise any metal supplies with excellent results with regard to both quality and time. A wide variety of options are now available when it comes to metal processing to make clients’ desired designs a reality.
Delivering professional, high-quality and cutting-edge metal fabrication solutions remains our main priority. At AMP, we provide custom metal processing solutions by introducing automated fabrication and computer numerical control that can precisely deliver the custom metalworks our clients require. In our experience, automated solutions make the manufacturing process much more efficient and less wasteful.
At AMP Metal, we offer four types of metal processing services that are suitable for conducting any kind of customised metal project: laser cutting, metal bending, robotic welding and CNC. We guarantee a superior outcome that is consistent, thorough and cost-effective.
In this article, we are going to introduce 4 types of metal processing solutions and explain why they are the perfect solution for your quality metal fabrication needs.
The metal fabrication process follows a series of steps such as cutting, bending and welding that transform raw metal material into an ideal size and outline that best fit your needs. While you have the option to purchase off-the-shelf parts, there are some benefits that only custom metal fabrication can offer. Most importantly, you’ll be able to secure metal parts and components that perfectly integrate with your equipment. You will also be able to choose the material used and whether it will extend the duration of or strengthen the structure.
These are the four types of metal fabrication services provided by AMP:
Laser is the latest thermal cutting technology that generates heat to shape the metal in the region requested. Combined with automation that controls the movement of the laser through a computer system, laser cutting guarantees highly consistent results in every cut, resulting in less variation. The ability to perform meticulous jobs allows laser cutting to provide exceptional detailing. The superior final edges administered by laser cutting also avoid the need for secondary machining operations.
Metal bending uses a press brake to adjust the shapes and angle of metal. It can either curve your metal into a delicate angle or reshape it into a cube or circle. Precision is essential when it comes to metal bending since the final product is often used as a component in larger machinery. At AMP, we offer superior sheet metal bending in the industry. Our CNC press brake precision-bends cut pieces perfectly for assembly.
Our CNC press brakes offer the benefit of being able to correctly control the timing and angle of bending through a computer-aided managing system. The compressor choice is also important. At AMP, we manufacture all our products through Durma AD-S, a model that is equipped with a 3D visual system for greater accuracy. From slight bends to deep sectioned 4-sided boxes, any stage or progressive metal bending imaginable can be planned and executed.
Many metalworks require some welding after laser cutting and metal bending to finish the design. This helps to better assemble the materials and furnish the edge. It is also a vital step in maintaining and extending the durability of the shaping results. At AMP, we use robotic welding for all types of welding projects. The robotic welding system uses robotic arms to weld, which enhances project efficiency and conserves materials.
In our experience, there are three major benefits of opting for robotic systems instead of manual welding. First, the robotic option is less time-consuming. Second, it saves material. With precision and constancy, robotic systems reduce material waste and energy consumption without the need for manual operation. Last, robotic welding is efficient. Diligent robots can operate 24/7 without a break and still ensure optimal delivery.
CNC (computer numerical control) systems can be applied in many manufacturing operations. The computerised operation guarantees a consistent, accurate and efficient outcome in every fabrication stage. One of the greatest advantages of a CNC system is that it is able to convert the result of 3D CAD into CAM models. Designers can work with the input of code or CAD design without complex technical barriers. It’s streamlined and hassle-free.
CNC revolutionises the face of manufacturing, not only because of the precise, complex-turned-simple and steady job it delivers, but also because of the possibilities offered to integrate the system with other manual metal processing techniques, such as bending and assembling parts. At AMP, we use the CNC system and integrate it cohesively with our laser cutting, metal bending and robotic welding services based on clients’ needs to ensure we deliver quality metal fabrication results.
Metal fabrication is a process that transforms raw metal into products or semi-products with different shaping techniques such as cutting, bending, welding and shearing. It produces the equipment needed to complete any machinery or manufacturing processes. It also adds value to the raw material by converting it into a workable unit.
Sheet metal fabrication is a procedure that transforms flat sheet metal into various shapes of metal parts. The sheet metal fabrication process normally starts with shaping the material through cutting and bending. After that, metal fabricators assemble it through welding, which keeps the finished product stable for maintenance and maximised durability.
