Squeezing Services For Sheet Metal and Custom Parts

Norck: Tailored Metal Shaping Solutions – Understanding Your "Squeezing" Needs

Norck delivers expert metal forming solutions, empowering manufacturers across diverse industries to achieve their desired part geometries and functional requirements. To best assist with your "metal squeezing" project, we'll need to dive deeper and understand your specific goals

Potential "Metal Squeezing" Techniques & Our Capabilities:

While "squeezing" is not a standard term, here are established processes that might achieve the results you're after:

  • Forging (Open-Die or Closed-Die): Using compressive force from hammers or presses to reshape metal into complex forms.
  • Extrusion (Direct or Indirect): Forcing metal through a die to create parts with a consistent cross-section along their length.
  • Custom Tooling & Compressive Forming: Designing specialized dies, molds, or fixtures to apply squeezing forces in a highly controlled manner.

Norck's Engineering Edge: It's About Achieving Your Specific Outcomes

  • Understanding Your Goals: We'll need to discuss the following:
  • Process & Material Expertise: Guidance on selecting the optimal metal forming process and alloy to match your performance, cost, and efficiency needs.
  • Simulation & Optimization: Utilizing FEA software where applicable to predict material flow, optimize die/tool design, and prevent potential failures.
  • Focus on Your Success: Working as an extension of your team to recommend and implement the ideal metal shaping solution.

Why Choose Norck for Your "Metal Squeezing" Project?

  • Solving Your Unique Challenges: We'll analyze your requirements and tailor the best approach, even if it involves a customized "squeezing" setup.
  • Performance-Driven Results: Metal forming expertise focused on achieving your desired strength, dimensional accuracy, and surface finish.
  • Comprehensive Solutions: Integrating forming with machining, heat treatment, finishing, and other services for complete part delivery.
  • Your Manufacturing Partner: Collaborating from initial concept through final production to ensure your "squeezing" project's success.

What is sheet metal squeezing?

Sheet metal squeezing is a process that is used to reduce the thickness of a sheet of metal by applying a compressive force to it. Squeezing sheet metal using cylinders is a process similar to traditional sheet metal squeezing, but it utilizes cylinders instead of a punch and a die to apply the compressive force. The process of squeezing can be performed on various materials, such as steel, aluminum, and brass.

Where is it used?

Sheet metal components are used in the following:

  •   Construction: Bending components for construction projects such as roofing and siding
  •   Automotive: Bending sheet metal for use in body parts such as doors, hoods, and fenders
  •   Aerospace: Bending sheet metal for use in the manufacturing of fuselage, doors, and fenders
  •   Advertising: Bending sheet metal for signage and advertising, including signs and billboards
  •   Food processing: Bending sheet metal for beverages, kitchen equipment
  •   Transportation: Bending sheet metal parts for cars, trains, buses, and aircraft
  •   Art: Bending sheet metal for use in building cladding

Advanced 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing

How is it fabricated?

Squeezing sheet metal using cylinders is typically done using specialized equipment, such as a press brake or a machine with cylinders. The process can be divided into several steps, depending on the part's complexity.

  •   Sheet metal cutting: The first step is to cut the sheet metal to the correct size and shape. It can be done using shearing, sawing, or laser cutting methods.

  •   Loading: The sheet metal is then loaded into the machine, which holds the metal in place while the squeezing process takes place

  •   Squeezing: Then, the workpiece is placed between the two cylinders, and then the cylinders are moved towards other to apply a compressive force to the metal. The cylinders are typically designed to create a specific shape or feature on the part.

  •   Unloading: After squeezing, the part might require different operations, such as painting or anodizing.
