Sheet metal processes In general, basic equipment includes Shear Machine, CNC Punching Machine, Laser, Plasma, Cutting Machine, Bending Machine, and various auxiliary equipment Such as: uncoiler, leveling machine, deburring machine, spot welding and so on.
Usually, the most important four steps in the sheet metal process are shear, punch / cut / fold / roll, welding, surface treatment and so on.
Sheet metal is sometimes made of gold, the word comes from the English platemetal, usually some of the metal sheet by hand or die stamping to produce plastic deformation, the formation of the desired shape and size, and can be further through the welding or a small amount of mechanical processing The formation of more complex parts, such as the family commonly used chimneys, iron furnace, as well as car shells are sheet metal pieces.
Metal sheet processing is called sheet metal processing. For example, the use of sheet metal production chimney, iron drum, tank oil tank, ventilation pipe, elbow size head, Tianyuan place, funnel-shaped, the main process is cut, bending buckle, bending forming, welding, riveting, etc. A certain geometric knowledge. 
Sheet metal parts is the sheet metal, that is, can be stamping, bending, stretching and other means to process the parts, a general definition is -
In the processing of the thickness of the same parts. Corresponding to the casting parts, forging parts, machined parts, such as the car outside the iron is the sheet metal parts, stainless steel to do some of the cabinet is also sheet metal pieces.
Modern sheet metal processes include: filament power winding, laser cutting, heavy machining, metal bonding, metal drawing, plasma cutting, precision welding, roll forming, sheet metal bending molding, die forging, water jet cutting, precision welding The
Sheet metal surface treatment is also a very important part of the sheet metal processing process, because it has to prevent parts rust, beautify the appearance of the product and so on. The surface of the sheet metal surface treatment is mainly to the role of oil, oxide, rust, etc., it is prepared for the surface treatment, and then the main processing is spray (baking) paint, spray and plating rust layer.
3D software, SolidWorks, UG, Pro / E, SolidEdge, TopSolid, CATIA and so have a sheet metal items, mainly through the editing of 3D graphics and sheet metal processing required data (such as the expansion, Line, etc.) and data for CNC Punching Machine / Laser, Plasma, Waterjet Cutting Machine / Combination Machine and CNC Bending Machine, etc....
