Sheet Metal Process
FCE sheet metal forming service integrated bending, roll forming, deep drawing, stretch forming processes in one workshop. You can get complete product with high quality and very short lead time.
Bending is a metal forming process in which a force is applied to a piece of sheet metal, causing it to bend at an angle and form the desired shape. A bending operation causes deformation along one axis, but a sequence of several different operations can be performed to create a complex part. Bent parts can be quite small, such as a bracket, such as a large enclosure or chassis
Roll forming, is a metal forming process in which sheet metal is progressively shaped through a series of bending operations. The process is performed on a roll forming line. Each station has a roller, referred to as a roller die, positioned on both sides of the sheet. The shape and size of the roller die may be unique to that station, or several identical roller dies may be used in different positions. The roller dies may be above and below the sheet, along the sides, at an angle, etc. the roller dies are lubricated to reduce friction between the die and the sheet, thus reducing the tool wear.
Deep drawing is a sheet metal forming process in which sheet metal is formed into the desired part shape by a drawing tool. A male tool pushes a sheet metal downward it into a die cavity in the shape of the design part. The tensile forces applied onto the metal sheet cause it to plastically deform into a cup-shaped part. Deep drawing is widely used with ductile metals, such as aluminum, brass, copper, and mild steel. Typical deep drawing application is automotive bodies and fuel tanks, cans, cups, kitchen sinks, pots and pans.
Drawing for Complex Shapes
Beside deep drawing, FCE also experience at complex profile sheet metal manufacturing. Finite element analysis to help get good quality part at the first trial.
Sheet metal can be ironed to obtain uniform thickness. For example, by this process you can have the product thinner in at side wall. But the thick at bottom. Typical application is Cans, Cups.

What Is Sheet Metal Fabrication?
Sheet metal fabrication is a subtractive manufacturing process that cuts or/and forms parts by metal sheets. Sheet metal parts were often used for the high precision and durability requirement, typical applications are chassis, enclosures, and brackets.
What is Sheet Metal Forming?
Sheet metal forming processes are those in which force is applied to sheet metal to modify its shape rather than remove any material. The applied force stresses the metal beyond its yield strength, causing the material to plastically deform, but not to break. After the force released, the sheet will spring back a little, but basically keep the shapes as pressed.
What is metal stamping?
To increase the sheet metal manufacturing efficiency, Metal stamping die is used to convert flat metal sheets into specific shapes. It is a complex process that can include a number of metal forming techniques — blanking, punching, bending and piercing.
