Metal rolling services for all sizes

Metal rolling services for all sizes

In metalworking, precision is key and it is vital that the metal is of a uniform thickness, and this is where Sheet Metal Services’ metal rolling services come in. To the uninitiated, sheet metal rolling services are a process whereby metal is passed through one or more pairs of rollers to reduce the thickness of the metal and make the thickness consistent. The principal is similar to the rolling of dough. There are generally two types of sheet metal rolling services: hot and cold. Hot metal rolling involves heating the metal and then being worked on. It is usually used to produce sheet metal or cross sections, such as rail tracks, but there are a multitude of uses for hot rolled metals. For example, it is often used in the automotive sector, for truck frames, wheel rims and clutch plates. It is also used in such things as water heaters, agricultural equipment, railcar components, metal buildings, doors, shelves and rail guards. Meanwhile, cold rolling usually takes place with the metal at room temperature and the process increases the strength of the product as well as improving the surface finish. Typical cold-rolled products include sheets, strips, rods and bars. Cold rolled metal is used in a wide range of products, from office furniture such as filing cabinets, desks, chairs and shelves, to computer cabinets and hardware. It is also used in home appliances, lawn movers, water heaters, metal containers, lighting fixtures and much more.   At our Kidderminster base, our on-site rolling facility can handle sheets up to 5mm in thickness, in varying sheet sizes.

Metal cutting services – a vital part of the project

Metal cutting services – a vital part of the project

Metal cutting services are vital for many manufacturing companies, and there are a variety of ways it can be done to get the right result. For many manufacturing projects, cutting metal into the required parts is one of the earliest and most fundamental jobs. But it is a job that requires precise metal cutting services: if the parts cut are even just a fraction out, it can compromise the whole project. This is why plasma cutting has become so popular in the industry. The process, which basically involves creating an electrical channel of ionized gas – plasma from the plasma cutter itself – through the work piece to be cut, thus forming a completed electric circuit back to the plasma cutter via a grounding clamp, means that metal can be cut to a high precision. At our base in Kidderminster, Sheet Metal Services offers metal cutting services to cut a wide variety of section and plate materials. For instance, sheet materials such as steel, aluminium, brass and copper can be plasma cut up to a maximum thickness of 10mm. In addition, our CNC software enables us to translate customer drawings and develop complex sections into working patterns, from which fabrication can then be undertaken. We work with our customers to ensure that the end product exactly meets their requirements. For materials over 10mm in thickness, we can handle these off site. At Sheet Metal Services, we invest in the latest technology to offer our customers a first-class metal cutting service, whether it is for a one-off or production jobs of any size. We also invest in our people, to...
