The specificity of the market and the ever increasing demand for fast operation and flexibility, combined with a growing need for precision, pushed the sheet metal working to targets that until a short time ago seemed unattainable.
To cope with this dynamic market that involves the processing of sheet metal, the first step is undoubtedly a design phase that uses the most sophisticated 3D modeling systems, including SOLID EDGE, interfaced to machine tools with numerical control systems CAM such as TruTops or TruBend. Today, it is essential to design a preliminary study of fast, flexible and above all, able to offer a ‘ highly realistic virtual anticipation of the product to be made quickly and easily changed at any time, in order to drastically reduce the steps needed to get Prototype otherwise to a series of optimal production, with margins of error close to zero, and it is easy to see how all of this translates into a reduction of the time that elapses between the study of a product and its implementation, and that is therefore in a substantial reduction of costs immediately so as to have a greater competitiveness. The sheet metal working can generally be divided into four main phases: – Design created by 3D CAD systems enslaved by CAM systems. – Cutting shears produced by numerical control systems or high power laser. – Punching accomplished by hydraulic punching machines with numerical control, or high-power lasers. – Bending realized through paneling or at numerically controlled bending enslaved by operators or robots.
The use of a three dimensional modeler, for example SOLID EDGE makes the sheet metal working fast and intuitive, immediately producing a three-dimensional model of the sheet to obtain and immediately convertible so to prepare for the various stages of processing. In the processing of sheet metal so that we SOLID EDGE, or another modeler for rolling, and that acts as a dual interface between the designer and the designer -client – numerically controlled machine tools such as trance, laser, bending etc. .. It begins with the draw three-dimensional sheet metal to get, choosing the thickness of which must have, the type of material to be used, which can be pickled sheet, galvanized sheet, embossed sheet, aluminum, peralluman, brass, stainless steel and so on, then supplementing it with all those processes which holes, excavations, notching, nibbling, imbotiture and whatever is required by the project, linking them to the active sheet from dimensional constraints, thus creating the reports can be easily modified for any requests for changes to the project or to its definition in the study phase. Defined three-dimensional model of the sheet it will automatically Development, namely the two-dimensional three-dimensional translation, referring unambiguously all the processes contained to a single point called origin and developed according to the two axes. This operation is to provide a support via a CAM program directly accessible from machine tools for sheet metal working, thanks to their numerical control ” reads ” the size of the sheet metal and machining to achieve. The commissioning table completes the design phase for sheet metal working, and essentially serves to program the at – hydraulic bending, so as to give a well-defined order to the various folds that define the sheet to be made; giving also an essential support for verification by the operator, the sheet made??.
