Shearing and Slitting as Part of Custom Parts Fabrication

Many industries nowadays deal with manufacturers that specialize in metal fabrication in order to come up with custom parts. For whatever purpose the custom parts may serve these industries, always taken into consideration are the operations executed by the firm they deal with.

The processes of metal fabrication must always be looked into thoroughly so that the resulting custom parts would be the product of the engineered specifications. For one, shearing is the process of metal fabrication that is utilized in order to cut through smooth metal stock or straight columns.

By and large, shearing is characterized by its faculty of making slices with straight lines on the sheet stock that is smooth. Shearing also has the capability to cut relatively tiny lengths of materials at any chance. This is due to the fact that it is likely for the sharp edges to be cut in that it is rigid at a skew in order to reduce the necessary force for cutting.

Shearing involves the upper blade and the lower blade having either at a standstill. During shearing, there is force acting between the two blades as each passes the other. A vital offset is used to determine the gap between the two blades. On the same note, there is a metal placement in the middle of the lower shear blade and the upper shear blade.

Cutting of metals is not exclusive for sheets. The use of this process of metal fabrication for custom parts can also be done on angle stock, strips, bars and plates. Raw materials that are used to come up with custom parts vary widely. Sheared materials include stainless steel, bronze, brass and aluminum among many others.

Apart from shearing, slitting is another type of process used in order to make custom parts. Instead of making cuts right at the very sides of the work piece, slicing is taken advantage of when it comes to opening of a metal coil in some slighter coils. Of course, this is in the account of the initial coil being stirred via the slicker.
One prominent attribute of slitting is its capability of being carried out on both ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Moreover, slitting is strictly for slicing materials that are significantly slim.

Whenever there is the need to cut a metal, there are things that must be considered first. Try answering the following questions:
What is the material to be cut?
What is the object to be cut made of?
How thick is the piece of material to be cut?
How must the cutting be tolerated in terms of restraint?
By means of answering these questions, you can determine what procedure to be used. Williamsburg Metal knows very well what to do when it comes to manufacturing custom parts as specified by its clients. It is more than a necessity for Williamsburg Metal to consider every single detail of the process of custom metal fabrication. On the same page, the client, regardless of the industry it belongs to, must take note of specifying its exact need so that the manufacturing of custom parts would be done well.

The Fundamentals of Tool Making and Die Making

The Fundamentals of Tool Making and Die Making

When it comes to tool and die making, it is very imperative to get into the fundamentals of both tool making and die making. By means of understanding what tool and die making is, one can clearly see its benefits.

Even if tool making and die making are two dissimilar things, die making is a subgenre of tool making. But then again, above and beyond, tool and die making is more often than not viewed as a single field because of its overlapping concepts. It is best to look closely at tool and die making individually instead of taking both as a whole.

By and large, tool making refers to the creation of tooling that is used in order to manufacture products. There are various tools that different industries may utilize depending on the need. Some of the most ordinary tools are form tools and metal forming tools. Apart from these examples, machine tools can also be made out of the process of tool making. The craft of tool making also has something to do with precision fixturing in as much as creating, holding, and testing the products that are crafted out of metal fabricating. Tool making is a very essential matter to deal with as far as the tool maker is concerned because modification of what we know as conventional tools is in as much indispensable to perk up the quality of the craft.

On the other hand, die making concentrates on the creation as well as the maintenance of dies. As mentioned in advance, die making is a subgenre of tool making because a die can be considered as a tool. Die in the metalworking sense is defined as any of different devices that are utilized for forming or cutting materials in a machine used for forging, stamping, or pressing. Apart from die itself, die sets, steel rule dies, and punches can be created by the use of the craft of die making. The core of die making is accuracy. In order to preserve proper clearance on manufacturing precise parts, accuracy must be the cornerstone of any business that deals with die making.

Without a doubt, both tool and die making is prioritized by Williamsburg Metal. Although Williamsburg Metal is best known for the services like metal stamping and metal spinning, tool and die making is also something that it takes pride in. What many industries like about the tool and die making of Williamsburg Metal is its cleanliness. Moreover, there is a modern efficiency that it is confident about. Because of the unparalleled competence and good organization of Williamsburg Metal, it keeps on spreading the good news of providing only the highest standard operations for its clients.

The equipment and the facilities of Williamsburg Metal keep on being the pioneer of positive feedbacks about the business and the people behind it.
