Machinery capability and our Success
In the early days most work was for one off sheet metal work projects and manufactured using basic manual sheet metal fabrication equipment such as a treadle guillotine, fly presses, pillar drills and welding equipment. To this day SAMS Fabrications still utilise this machinery as well as the latest CNC. The conventional manual machinery is a lot more diverse when it comes to one offs with quick set up times and versatility enabling for special tooling to be cost effectively manufactured in house to suit job requirements.
Following the success and continued growth of our company; providing quality cost effective metal fabrication with our experience and "out of the box thinking" gave us the chance to invest in more productive sheet metal manufacturing equipment. This includes our CNC punch press the LVD Shape 35 with a 15 station turret supported by the latest Radan offline computer software.
Punch profiling sheet metal is potentially a faster and cheaper method than laser cutting, depending on part complexity and batch size. Simpler profiles and larger volumes are ideally suited to punching. An additional benefit is that punching machines can generate simple formed features such as dimples, louvres, logo indentations and knock-outs, thus avoiding the need for additional operations. Our CNC punching machine is capable of punching materials in thicknesses up to 5mm. The materials punch profiled include stainless steel, mild steel, aluminium, brass and copper Using Radan computer-assisted part nesting allows maximum material utilisation.
We also offer laser cutting that provides a fast, flexible and economical means of precision sheet metal cutting and plate profiling.
Laser cutting offers extensive flexibility, handling profiles from the simplest of components to the most complex. Laser cutting is suitable for both pre-production prototypes and production batches. Laser cutting is the most attractive and economical means of profiling sheet metal components with minimum material waste with no clamping strip and part nesting using the latest Radan software allowing maximum material utilisation.
To complement our punching and profiling facilities we have in house CNC folding facilities. The Edwards Pearson 4 meter x 100T capacity CNC press. With the CNC programmed bending cycles stored on the machines computer and up to 6 axis CNC back gauge systems, this machine is both accurate and reliable when it comes to repeat batch work. This machine is hydraulically powered allowing us to have a precise control over the angle of any bend you need for your design. The Edwards press brake has extended capabilities such as Dutch folding and Hydraulic crowing. The machine also has pneumatic tool clamping allowing for quick tool changes.
