Sheet Metal prototyping can be done using the following 2 processes –
1. Cut and Weld Process
2. Local forming tools and blanking using Wirecut/laser cut
It is done with the thickness of sheet metal plate upto 1.2 – 1.5 mm. Single Tool is made in Poly Urethane PU or MS material.
Sheet metal of desired thickness will undergo pressing operations to get the desired shape and appropriately finished later. The strength of the tool is chosen and is governed by the no. of pieces desired, which customer has to specify upfront.
With this no. of prototypes possible can be upto 50 – 100 in nos., if desired a small batch of production is also possible for which initial strength of tool is taken care upfront. Accuracies of +/- 1 mm is possible through this method.
The inputs desired is 3D CAD data and the no. of pcs desired, Specific Material desired. We fabricate prototypes (few in quantities) in sheet metals of less deep drawn components upto thickness of 1.2 – 1.5 mm directly from CAD details. The prototypes are very good for functional and fitment testings.
