Situated near the shores of Lake Ontario, located in Canada’s province of Ontario is the city of Mississauga. This city is a suburb of Toronto. Mississauga’s growth is due to the proximity to Toronto. With over 60 of the Fortune 500 companies basing their business out of the Canadian head offices that are located in Mississauga, there is much reason for this city to be thriving. Some of the strongest industries such as banking and finance, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, electronics and computers, transportation parts, and even equipment industry, are all located here. Many of the businesses require custom sheet metal and Bayview Metals is proud to supply custom Canadian made sheet metal components.
From electromechanical components and custom rack-mount assemblies to custom metal parts for diverse industries like industrial machinery, and telecommunications, we are equipped to handle most anything. We have a fleet of delivery trucks that make client deliveries within a 100km radius of our Ajax, Ontario manufacturing facility.
Let us show you why Bayview has become a name synonymous with superior quality.
What Is Metal Fabrication?
The process of metal fabrication begins by you informing us of the specifications for your project, such as the quantity, the measurements, the type of metal required, and the project deadline. We will design the project and begin manufacturing when we receive your approval. All of the design, construction and manufacturing of sheet metal is done on-site to ensure the procedure meets your criteria. Our skilled technicians with start-of-the-art advanced equipment, such as CNC punching machines, welding machines, and CNC laser cutters allow production of high-quality products.
What Are The Advantages To Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication?
The primary advantages to custom sheet metal fabrication include the following:
The ability to make almost anything ranging from different sizes to unique designs.
An effective and efficient means of controlling metal fabrication quality ranging from shape and design to dimensional tolerance.
A cost-effective means of metal fabrication meeting the specifications listed in applications. Once these machines are used, there is no need for further alterations in the sheet metal product.
You have the final say regarding the full sheet metal fabrication procedure as you will be working with skilled technicians.
The team will work closely with the sheet metal fabrication companies meaning the project can be completed in a short period of time.
An increase in durability and product usefulness. The sheet metal is fabricated to meet unique settings and working environments, such as special chemicals, temperature, vibrations and stress.
An increase in productivity and efficiency. Using customized sheet metal fabrication, you can optimize the design making them suitable and compatible for your needs. This improves the level of efficiency and productivity.
What Is Design For Manufacturability Or DFM?
The design for manufacturability setting is where all technicians involved in metal sheet fabrication meet with the client. At this point, an examination of design, resources and manufacturing capabilities are considered to ensure manufacturing will be cost—effective.
Of course, some of the production requires quantity, conformation to set standards and the client’s specifications. Consequentially, the DFM examines part specification, material type, quality compliance, quality testing compliance and environmental compliance.
What Is A CNC Turret Punch Press?
The CNC Turret Punch Press is a sheet metal fabrication machine operated using computer numerical controls. It uses several shapes and sizes of tools to punch or cut the profiles of sheet metal. Using the tooling inventory, the machines are versatile and speedy. The Punch Press is also able to perform different forming operations, such as countersinking, knockouts, tapping, small bends, embossing and forming lances. The Amada machinery used by our technicians has a reputation as the best in the world and has turrets wallowing for punching of cuts ranging from 0.040 inches to 4.5 inches.
What Is The Difference Between Metal Fabrication And Metal Stamping?
Metal stamping refers to the different types of metal formation operations, as well as bending, stamping, folding, pressing and stretching the metal. All stamping procedures use a customized punch press to create a unique design. This means the tools produce a pattern, shape or specific characteristic for metal fabrication. Overall, the metal stamping procedure offers increased tolerance as compared to metal fabrication. It is a cost-effective and speedy means of producing metal parts in mass amounts.
The metal fabrication procedure involves manufacturing three-dimensional metal parts using bending, cutting or other assembly operations. Metal fabrication typically requires specific equipment, such as the CNC turret presses, CNC laser cutters, CNC press brakes, and welding tools. As compared with metal stamping, metal fabrication is the cost-effective method of producing parts in large amounts. This is due to the metal stamping process being expensive. Furthermore, metal fabrication offers increased flexibility as compared to stamping. This is due to the absence of tools to change the design if it requires alteration.
What Is The CNC Press Brake Machine?
The CNC press brake machine is a tool used to bend sheet metal. The use of computer numerical control means the machine is controlled via software, as well as using PLC controllers to offer a high level of repeatability. The variables are easily controlled using the machine’s computer instead of operating manually. Procedures can include back gauge setting, pressure placement and die selection.
How Does The Press Brake Operate?
Press brakes operate by clamping the sheet metal between dies and punches. This results in a bend in the sheet metal. A back gauge is used to determine the size of the bend. The punches, RAM and dies indicate the radius and angles of the bends.
