Last Updated on April 12, 2022 by Leizi

Metal components have a wide application from the table frame to the aeropace components. That’s why metal manufacturing is so important in our daily life. It refers to deforming the metal materials into parts of a desired size and type. Let’s see some popular methods to do metal manufacturing now!

Casting. It works by pouring the melton molten metal into the space. The finished casting metal parts will have high repeatability. It is also one of the most economical ways to produce metal components in a large quantity. There are different categories of casting you can choose. And it can be divided into investment casting, plaster casting, plaster casting, die casting, etc.

Extrusion. It’s a process that presses the cylindrical billet into the die and pushes the parts out by the hydraulic press. And Aluminum is the most popular material to get extrusions. We often use aluminum to make aluminum extrusions with high volume.

Forging. By melting hard metals to their melting points, we can change their types accordingly. There are two kinds of metal forging: hot forging and cold forging.

Stamping. It consists of coining, embossing, and punching. After putting the flat metals in the stamping machines, the tools will stamp the metals to your desired ones.

Cutting. It is also a cost-effective way to cut the flat sheet into components of a specific size. There are two common kinds of cutting: laser cutting and flame cutting.

Above all is a brief introduction to 6 types of metal manufacturing. Which one do you prefer when you get the project to do?
