In addition to the many bespoke commissions CN Metalwork produce, we also undertake production of multiple units and ‘batch work’ for many of our customers.
This can range from relatively simple components to more complex pieces incorporating laser cutting, welding, sheet metal folding and fabrication.
Our investment in a broad spectrum of the latest metalworking machinery and skilled staff means that we are able to undertake multiple unit production, with the guarantee of quality and consistency throughout.
As you would expect, CN Metalworks are able to perform all welding processes, including spot welding. Spot welding is a popular resistance welding method used to join overlapping metal sheets of up to 3mm thick.
The advantages of spot welding include high production rates, limited workpiece deformation and no required filler materials.
Stud welding is a powerful and reliable welding process for applying a single side fastener to a metal component, including stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium, aluminium alloy, and brass studs and components.
The introduction of an AMADA LC F1 NT laser cutting machine in 2018 added further capabilities to our batch-working processes. This highly intricate, highly accurate laser cutting facility is something which is increasingly in demand and many of our customers are already seeing the benefit from the introduction of this machine into our business.
To find out more about our approach to multiple unit production and batch work, please get in touch and we’d be happy to discuss further.
Sheet Metal Folding
The AMADA HFE3i is one of the most advanced press brakes available and features Amada’s ‘Instant Reactive Beam’ technology for highly precise and consistent accuracy.
The HFE 3i press brakes are equipped with AMADA’s patented lower beam as standard, giving ‘parallel deflection’ under all bending loads, a concept which ensures consistent punch penetration into the V die, over the full bending length under all loads and conditions
The PEMSERTER® Series 4 press is totally pneumatic providing short cycle time for increased productivity and 53.4 kN / 6 tons of force and a 45.7 cm / 18″ throat depth which provides clearance for a variety of chassis configurations. It is designed to install self-clinching fasteners in size M2 / #0 thru M10 / 3/8″ in steel, and sizes up to M12 / 1/2″ in aluminum panels or circuit boards.
No drilling, punching, thread cutting, bonding, riveting is required to fix the fastening element. No re-working of the non-welded side of the component is required, even on painted, enamelled, electro-plated or plastic coated surfaces. Welds are liquid tight, gas tight and the coating is not disturbed.
Taylor Studwelding’s stud welding machines are highly efficient and well suited to a variety of applications. They have fast welding rates of up to 60 studs per minute, ideal for both long and short production runs, combined with a high accuracy level.
