Various problems are easy to arise in the actual processing of sheet metal. First of all, in selecting sheet metal processing materials, it needs to be consistent with the relevant usage requirements. Sheet metal is mainly used for equipment housings and electrical circuit installation parts. Therefore, the selection of plates is essential. If the selection method can be highly scientific, it can improve processing efficiency and ensure cost reduction in the same effect. To achieve this, the staff needs to reduce the number of mold changes further, and there should be no more than three options for the exact sheet thickness specification, which can be done in the form of sheet compresses if the structural requirements are high. Second, avoid the unfolded size of the whole part, and the outline size of the raw material is the same. In particular, the plates offered in the market appear to be defective in appearance. Still, if the unfolded size is the same as the outline of the entire part, and no margin is reserved, it will lead to errors in the machining size of the product, which ultimately affects the regular use of sheet metal. Finally, if sheet metal products have decorative surface requirements, people also need to consider the sheet’s decorative surface and texture direction. Adding does not need to consider the purpose, so the law of texture should dominate the choice of panels with decorative covers. If it is a non-leakage part, the whole process must be well protected. The weld must be treated effectively after welding, which involves considerable processing. To ensure unnecessary processing, people can consider materials without decorative surfaces.
- Process characteristics
There are various forms of sheet metal process; the main classification comes from sheet metal parts, mainly including stamping process, bending process, and welding process. These three processes can show different processing characteristics; especially when compared with traditional machining processes, there are apparent differences between these three processing processes and forms.
Firstly, the stamping and bending processes can be applied to specific molds, while the welding process uses welding equipment to position the tooling to realize the welding of parts. In addition, if you want to transform from traditional processing technology to these three processing technologies, people first need to change the conventional structural design ideas and concepts, mainly new sheet metal processing technology, do a good job of equipment selection and mold design, to avoid the limitation of the whole work due to the design results. In addition, people can also do an excellent job of the structural design of sheet metal parts according to the process characteristics of sheet metal so that the processing technology requirements and finished product quality of the whole product can be in line with the standards.
- Design guidelines for hole-missing structures
In the design process of the hole and meeting the product requirements, it should provide particular convenience for the subsequent processing work. After the whole processing is completed, it will not affect the following aesthetics. First of all, try to avoid opening the square hole to the bending root, and after the bending operation, the plate should be stretched well. Still, if you are a little careless in this operation, it will cause the hole to be deformed, and if the gap is mainly made by hand, the processing difficulty will increase further. Secondly, the selection of threaded hole processing methods can be realized in different ways, such as direct tapping, flanging tapping, and spot welding nuts on the plate, etc., and due to the extra thickness of the plate and the size of the screw hole, the related design methods are also different. If the distance between each flanging hole and the container is too small, the plate distortion will become more apparent, which will affect the machining effect.
Research on the application of new materials in sheet metal structure process products
Due to the strong specificity of sheet metal technology, in the specific structural design process, related problems in the design can be avoided through the application of new materials, especially in the particular processing cost and time consumption efficiency, which need to be consistent with the batch requirements of the processed parts, which related materials can achieve. Effective optimization of sheet metal structure can be realized. In actual design, many sheet metal structure designers do not have solid professional qualities, insufficient practical knowledge and experience, and some misunderstandings may arise in the traditional processing structure design. Therefore, before new materials are applied, relevant managers must clarify these misunderstandings, guide staff to correct design operations, and ensure that the sheet metal structure process level aligns with applicable standards.
- Strength design of sheet metal
In the strength design of sheet metal parts, it should be ensured that the strength applied in equipment processing meets the relevant requirements to ensure that the quality and quality of the application equipment is effectively guaranteed. Many designers tend to consider the application material and further improve the strength by enhancing the material thickness in the actual design process. The result is often counterproductive, the fundamental problem cannot be solved, and it is easy to cause sheet metal parts to fail to meet the basic requirements in terms of cost and specifications. In addition, according to the stamping process and bending process, the processing technology should be fully upgraded without changing the thickness of the original sheet metal material to meet the welding requirements as a whole. In addition, the staff can also perform stress analysis on sheet metal structural parts by stamping convex hulls and rolling ribs. At this time, people can come according to the specific strength
