AUTOMATED SHEET METAL FORMING & BENDING
CNC Sheet Metal Bending & Forming
Salvagnini P4 automated sheet metal panel bending technology and experience at Dalsin presents design opportunities and the greatest forming accuracy. CNC panel bending maintains tight forming tolerances and repeatable process control through various complex formed geometries.
As metal forming achieves design strength vs. gauge strength, often times equivalent structural strength is formed into thinner gauge panels and enclosures at lower material and manufacturing costs, which is useful for the medium to high volume orders Dalsin specializes in. This design strength initiative can be applied to highly cosmetic, pre-finished, and masked materials. Dalsin’s CNC sheet metal bending & CNC sheet metal forming technology is extremely useful for part consolidation and re-design for cost reduction.
From Salvagnini, a schematic of P4 automated panel bending: the blank (1) is moved on a horizontal plane by the manipulator (2). A rotator fitted on the manipulator quickly and accurately places the side to be bent in front of the press. The blank-holder (3) holds the blank firmly in position. The bending unit (4) and its blades can then make any number of bends, up (5) or down (6), in rapid succession.
Dalsin processes highly cosmetic sheet materials through the automated forming process, including:
- Stainless steel #4 polished and grained with masking film.
- Aluminum grained, with and without masking film.
- Pre-painted aluminum and steel.
- Pre-primed aluminum and steel.
