Copper Material Sheet Metal Fabrication Manufacturer
When it comes to sheet metal fabrication, Creatingway offers custom services depending on the customers’ project specification. Options for fabrication different depending on a metal’s property and hardness. One of the most common sheet metals fabricated includes copper. Copper and copper alloys posses’ properties that make it easy to fabricate sheet metal provided the company uses the right equipment and processes. Creatingway offer you better resources and a partner who delivers quality copper sheet metal fabrication projects. We shares the blog post you with highlights the various aspects of copper sheet metal fabrication.
What’s the characteristics of copper material?
Copper own specific characteristics making it a desirable choice for sheet metal sheet fabrication. The notable features include:
- An excellent conductor of heat and electricity.
- Malleable nature making it easy to shape.
- Slow corrosion rate but machinery and tools used for copper alloys should not use with other metals to avoid corrosion.
- Excellent tensile strength of about 70 MPa, allows for deformations higher than other materials.
These stand out features led to Creatingway adopting copper metal sheets for various applications such as transport, electronic industry, machine tools, and construction (roofs, gutters, piping, electrical wiring).
Which types the copper sheet metal fabrication have?
Creatingway provides the various option of copper sheet metal fabrication services to meet the customers’ demands. The popular services offered include as below, Of course, we also provide you more surface finishing process.
Sheet metal fabrication process:
Surface finishing process:
- Power coating
Copper material sheet metal bending
It describes a process involving a punch die setup that combines compression and tension to change the shape of the parts without altering the metal sheet volume. The process differs due to the size, shape, and thickness of copper sheet metal. Other factors include the size of the bend, bend of radius, angle of bend, and location of the bend in the sheet metal.
Creatingway’s sheet metal bending machines make us produce copper sheet metal with:
- A bend located exactly where you need it on the copper sheet
- A specific bend radius
- Any bend angle needed for your sheet metal products
We ensure to reduce the risk of developing deformities during the entire process for a much cleaner result.
Rolling machining process
This process involves rolling copper sheet metals in between two constantly spinning rolls. The process induces an effect on the copper sheet below
- Reduces the thickness of your copper sheet
- It alters the grain (small crystal) structure of the copper sheet. It allows the formation of a uniform structure in the metal, decreasing porosity development by closing any cavities within the original grain.
One major drawback of this technique is the chance of developing defects on the copper metal sheet. Creatingway ensures the chances of this developing on the low for a dent free and an error-free project.
Copper material sheet metal stamping
This process involves cutting sheet metal and subsequently forming it. Most processes are through cold forming operations. However, there is an alternative known as hot stamping where we heat introduce into the process.
Creatingway relies on two metal sheet stamping techniques to work around your project design. It includes hydraulic and mechanic pressing. Both utilize dies to create the stamped parts. The outcome is dependent on:
- The product budget and production quantity.
- Thickness of the copper sheet.
- The shape that you want stamping from the sheet.
Overall handling of copper material sheet metal
Copper handling is to avoid forming dents or surface scratches. A protective layer is present in the form of a protective adhesive film, and copper sheets kept separate using paper, wood, or other material to prevent scratches. For cleaning before processing, soap and water might be adequate, but we use specific chemical detergents recommended for industrial use.
Which types the copper parts surface finishing services have?
The main issue with the use of copper in metal fabrication is the environmental impact that is possible to affect the final part outcome. Surface finishing treatment is thus essential in creating a new appearance and increased corrosion resistance. There are main surface finishing include:
We use a thin anodizing layer to change the surface state and properties of the copper parts formed. We get to achieve different surface shadings, enhance wear resistance, improve corrosion resistance, protect copper surface form dent formation.
For customers with copper parts likely to be exposed to the outside environment for a long time, they fear the formation of a copper green coating. One evident structure is the statue of liberty. At times, this is not the desired result, and we have a solution for that. The use of the passivation process to make reactive copper metal unreactive. It leaves your copper metal parts free from environmental damage and maintaining its original color.
Some of the copper sheets we receive are full of stains, impurities, oil stains, stain spots, and other dirt on the copper surface. At Creatingway, we aim to give you the best-finished copper parts. We do copper cleaning to restore the luster and brightness of the initial copper surface.
Copper polishing requires a gentle approach because copper is soft. We do this by soaking the different copper parts in polishing liquid to achieve the desired brightness and shiny finish. Coupling this knowledge with more information provided by the customer, we know how best to approach the finishing and what finishes are most appropriate.
