Let’s now give you some insight how Norck fabricates and manufactures sheet metal parts and assemblies.

What is sheet metal fabrication?

Sheet metal fabrication is a process that uses sheets of metal (Aluminum, galvanized steel, etc.) to produce metal components that are used as a standalone part or as a part in an assembly. The fabrication process usually includes blanking/punching, shearing, laser/plasma/waterjet cutting, bending, edge bending, forming, deep drawing, and squeezing.

Where is sheet metal used?

Sheet metal components are used in:

  •   Industrial equipments and machinery
  •   Aircrafts, automotive, railway vehicles, and excavators
  •   Miscellaneous consumer products such as appliances and consumer electronics
  •   Robotics
     Military equipments and weaponry systems

How is sheet metal fabricated?

Generally, sheet metal fabrication operations are performed as cold. Norck provides sheet metal cutting and forming services with the following processes such as:

• Blanking / Punching

Blanking and punching is a process of cutting a workpiece from a sheet metal coil using a press (die). Norck processes sheet metal using punching or blanking methods. In any case, Norck uses BAUCOR branded tools which Norck itself manufactures.

The difference between blanking and punching is the desired result (workpiece/scrap).

• Shearing

Shearing is a process of slicing a sheet metal using a blade which is usually called shear blade. Shearing can be done manually or with a die, which will affect the cut's cost and accuracy. Norck is licensed to manufacture BAUCOR branded industrial blades which includes shear blades. You can check BAUCOR's website here.

• Laser cutting

Laser cutting is a thermal cutting method that is used to obtain custom flat sheet metal shapes. Accuracy is around ±0.0005inches (±0.01mm) for laser and ±0.0010inches (±0.03mm) for waterjet.

• Bending

is transforming a flat metal sheet into a V or U-shaped part using a press. These presses can be of various sizes. Norck can bend sheet metal up to 5000 mm depending on the complexity of the shape.

•  Edge bending

Edge bending is transforming an edge of sheet metal into an angle. Sheet metal is fixed between two die parts, and the free edge is punched to form the desired shape.

•  Forming

Forming / Stamping comprises multiple operations such as blanking, punching, and bending to form a simple or complex shape of sheet metal components. The sheet metal is transformed between a punch and a DIE with male and female shapes of the final workpiece.

•  Deep drawing

In deep drawing, a blank is held between a die and a blank holder, and then it is formed using a punch. The shapes obtained are generally curved parts.

•  Squeezing

Squeezing is altering the thickness of sheet metal through two cylinders
