Sheet Metalworking Defined Cutting and forming operations performed on relatively thin sheets of metal • Thickness of sheet metal = 0.4 mm (1/64 in) to 6 mm /4 in) (1/4 in) • Thickness of plate stock > 6 mm • Operations usually performed as cold working

Three Major Categories of Sheet Metal Processes 1. Cutting - Shearing to separate large sheets; or cut part perimeters or make holes in sheets . ending 2. Bending - Straining sheet around a straight axis 3. Drawing - Forming of sheet into convex or concave shapes

Blanking and Punching Blanking - sheet metal cutting to separate piece from surrounding stock • Cut piece is the desired part, called a blank unching heet metal cutting similar to blanking Punching - sheet metal cutting similar to blanking except cut piece is scrap, called a slug • Remaining stock is the desired part
