We were very pleased to look at this new sheet metal press work project for an existing customer as it meant keeping some press work in the UK here at our manufacturing home in Fareham, Hampshire. These galvanised mild steel lighting enclosures are used to prevent loft insulation from smothering any down light fittings that has been fitted to an upstairs ceilings and which is protruding into the loft void above. The sheet metal enclosures are easy to bend up and fit by hand being adjustable for the standard loft timber spacing. They are supplied in a flat pack form for easy storage at our customer's factory and transport to the installing contractors.
We manufacture each item of sheet metal work from a multiple rolled coils of galvanised mild steel which is fed through our CNC de-coiler line and into our 55 ton HME rapid action power press. They are produced by one operation cycle in a dedicated power press tool. They are then packed, including an instruction sheet and labelled up by us and delivered directly to our customer’s stores ready for them to send out to their customers whenever needed.
If you have a project that might need sheet metal work in higher numbers than that which may be suitable for CNC punching why not give us a call and we can look into press tooling for you. You might be surprised at how cost effective it can be on projects with lower quantities as well as where complex piercing or forming is needed.
