Sheet metal processing, which is a very important step in the formation of sheet metal products, its meaning, in simple terms, is the processing of parts and technical plates, called sheet metal processing. After understanding the meaning of sheet metal processing, in order to let everyone know more about sheet metal processing, manufacturers introduce the terminology of sheet metal processing.

Terminology in sheet metal processing:

Pressing and riveting: refers to the process of firmly pressing a fastener such as a rivet nut, a rivet screw or a rivet nut column to a workpiece by a punch or a hydraulic press.

Riveting: A process in which two or more workpieces are tightly joined together by a rivet gun as a tool.

Cut angle: refers to the process of cutting the workpiece corner using a mold on a punch press or hydraulic press.

Reaming: The process of using a drill or milling cutter to hold a small hole in a large workpiece.

Riveting: The process of joining two or more workpieces face to face by rivets. If the head is riveted, the workpiece should be countersunk first.

Forming: The process of using a mold to make a sheet metal part into a specified shape on a punch press or other professional sheet metal processing equipment.

Cutting material: The processing material is processed by a shearing machine to obtain a specified shape.

Blanking: refers to the process of workpiece cutting through LASER cutting or CNC punching.

Back tooth: refers to the process of repairing the secondary thread of the workpiece that has been pre-attacked with teeth.

Blanking: refers to the process of using a mold to process the shape of a product on a common press or other equipment.

Punching: refers to the process of machining a hole from a common punch and die.

Plunging: Also called "flanging", refers to the process of using a mold to form a round hole in a common punch or other equipment. process.

Flattening: Processes a workpiece with a certain shape to a flat process.

Tapping: refers to the process of machining internal threads on a workpiece.

Leveling: Use other processing equipment to level the workpiece to make the workpiece flat before and after.

Tear tear: Also called "rushing bridge", refers to the process of forming a workpiece like a bridge in a punch or a hydraulic press.

Drilling: A process in which a drill bit is used to drill a workpiece on a drill press or milling machine.

Pull mother: refers to the use of a similar riveting process. A process in which a connecting member such as a rivet nut (POP) is firmly attached to a workpiece by a puller.

Chamfer: refers to the process of processing the sharp corners of a workpiece using a mold, a file, a sander, and the like.

Punching mesh: refers to the hole punched out of the mesh by a mold on a common punch or a CNC punch press.

Bending: The process of bending a workpiece with a bending machine.

Print: A process in which a word, symbol, or other imprint is punched onto a workpiece using a mold.

Punching convex hull: refers to the process of forming a convex shape into a workpiece by a punch or a hydraulic press.

Riveting: refers to the process of first sinking the workpiece and then firmly pressing the riveting nut onto the workpiece by using a punch or hydraulic press.

Counterbore: A process in which a taper hole is machined into a workpiece in conjunction with a connector such as a countersunk head screw.

The above is the terminology used in sheet metal processing. Through the above introduction, I believe that everyone's understanding of sheet metal processing is a step further.
