Best Sheet Metal Assembly Services From Creatingway
Creatingway offers high-end assembly services for all fabricated products and applications. Our range of services offered is extensive, whether it is relating to rapid prototype, single projects, operational activities, or if its demand is surplus to your own plant’s capacity. We are ready to help you achieve your objective. Therefore, at Creatingway, we fully understand the challenges faced in standardizing metal fabrication and assembly services. We work in-house on metal sheets to produce products that meet your expectations and design.
An Outline of The Sheet Metal Fabrication Process
Prior to sheet metal assembly, we undertake a process that turns flat metal into metal structures through cutting, folding, bending, welding, assembly, punching, and finishing. We bend, cut, and stretch sheet metal into any desired shape.
We have special equipment such as band saws, chop saws, cutting torches, and laser cutter that we utilize in cutting sheet metal to varying sizes.
Folding and bending
We use press brakes to ease the creation of sharp bends and angles within the metal. There are different press brakes with different capabilities and purposes.
Welding is a critical part of sheet metal fabrication. After forming all the components, we assemble and tack weld them into place. We utilize a variety of welding techniques to prevent warping or irregularities. Such techniques include special straightening processes and utilizing a stout fixture.
We normally finish the fabrication process by sand-blasting, priming, and painting the sheet metal.
Assembly Services Equipment and Capabilities
Creatingway has a long-standing history of working with customer’s drawings and specifications to assemble a finalized product. We utilize a wide variety of tools including but not limited to electric power or pneumatic tools with variable torque specifications, along with various manual tools. At Creatingway, we ascertain that the right tool is available for the right procedure when looking to get the assembly done. We offer both PEM setting and Weld Nut installations services when looking to avoid the incorporation of nuts into your products. We also weld studs onto your product. Furthermore, Creatingway also provides riveting services within our assembly process for a more permanent securing measure.
Best Sheet Metal Joining Techniques
Our production line offers the following sheet metal assembly services:
- Weld Nut Services
- PEM Setting Services
- Stud Welding Services
- Riveting Services
- Folding/ Tab Joint Services
Weld Nut Services
Creatingway offers weld nut securing for our customers via the use of our 2 spot welders. We incorporate weld nuts into a variety of metal sheet surfaces such as carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and their alloys. It provides a permanent threaded characteristic on the finished parts to enable use as standard fasteners.
PEM Setting Services
At Creatingway, we provide PEM-setting automation for clients using state of the art PEM-setting machines that can set sheet metal parts made of carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and their alloys. Whether your specifications require surface mount, flaring, broaching, weld technology, or self-clinching, then we are the preferred company for you. Our PEM-setting machines offer robust, permanent, and reusable threads of metal sheets.
Stud Welding Services
Creatingway offers stud welding which adjoins a metal stud to the metal workpiece. Its uses are wide-ranging from everyday kitchen appliances to building bridge decks, military ships, and construction of military tankers. We provide stud welding for applications used in the production of metal sheet steel components, with a capability of up to 19 mm studs. The length varies depending on the needed product.
At Creatingway, we have identified this service as an essential step in the assembly of metal sheet components. We provide professional riveting that joins workpieces together. Their connection can have shear loads, ones that are perpendicular to the axis of the shaft. Standard cylindrical, smooth rivets, or a variety of styles, sizes, and materials are present for any product assembly. Riveting work is expertly automated with a pneumatic rivet installation, enabling smooth, reliable finalization. It also enables a limitless variation in design. The rivets result in permanent fastening and are ready for the challenging environmental conditions and applications. The resulting part is sturdy enough to be waterproof, and it can hold up against heavy loads and high vibrations.
Folding/ Tab Joints services
At Creatingway, we connect two metal sheets by bending or folding the tabs in a buckle and clamping slot form. It is among the most straightforward and convenient processes in our assembly line. Unfortunately, the fold joint operation does not guarantee full or auxiliary positioning of the end-product.
In our years of experience, self-clinching, or other terms, self-riveting utilizes the mutual deformation between the metal sheets to finalize their mutual fixation. Hence, this connection is simple to perform, fast, and convenient.
Advantages and Disadvantages for Sheet Metal Assembly
- It is safe and reliable
- It is efficient and fast
- It is at a higher cost.
Folding / Tab joints
- Low cost of assembly
- Quick assembly time
- It cannot wholly limit all degrees of movement.
- Requires a dedicated mold which is self-guided thus no positioning is needed
- It needs the counter-sinking process.
- Cannot disassemble.
- It is difficult to guarantee the yield rate.
- It is easy to operate with good fluidity
- Good self-positioning
- One needs to pre-punch
- The pull stud has an abnormal bump
- There is a limit to the used space in the riveting gun
- It is a simple process
- No pre-processing is needed
- Equipment is complex
- Unable to remove
- Welding materials must be a much
- Weak welding force results in easy to remove parts.
Material Considerations on metal fabrication
We use a variety of materials in sheet metal fabrication. The desired metal qualities include strength, durability, conductivity, flexibility, and resistance to corrosion. Iron, steel, carbon steel, brass, copper, bronze, and aluminum all have these unique properties.
