CNC precision machining > NEWS > What is the difference between sheet metal processing and machining?

  Sheet metal is generally defined as: sheet metal is a comprehensive cold working process for metal sheets (usually below 6mm), including shearing, punching/cutting/compositing, folding, welding, riveting, splicing, forming (such as car body), etc. . Its remarkable feature is the same thickness of the same part.

        For sheet metal processing, the simple explanation is that sheet metal processing is for sheet metal materials such as steel plates, galvanized sheets, etc. They are bent, cut or stamped into specified shapes, such as round fittings, curved fittings, etc. For hardware and the like, shearing machines, bending machines and digital punching machines are generally used.

        Machining is more complicated than sheet metal processing, mainly machining parts, the material is generally block or whole, but there are also plates. Mainly to use professional processing machines for cutting, generally used today are lathes, milling machines, grinding machines, wire cutting, CNC, spark machines and other processing equipment.

        Sheet metal processing is simply metal sheet processing, such as computer chassis, distribution box, the machine tools used are generally CNC punching machines, laser cutting, bending machines, shearing machines, etc. But machining is not the same as sheet metal processing. It is to process the blank material into parts. For example, shaft hardware parts are machined.
