Explanation of 8 common problems in sheet metal production

Explanation of 8 common problems in sheet metal production

Sheet metal processing is an important method of modern industrial manufacturing, but during the production 

and processing process, some problems often occur. It is precisely these common problems that often affect

 product quality, reduce efficiency and increase costs. In order to effectively solve these problems, Laizhou Kailai

 Machinery reminds you to pay attention to the solutions to the following 8 common problems.

1. Damage to the mold

During sheet metal processin, mold damage is one of the common phenomena. In order to solve this problem,

 sheet metal processing factories first need to strictly control the quality of molds to ensure that they can meet 

production needs. Secondly, rules and regulations must be followed during processing. For example, the oil

 pressure should be appropriately reduced during the stamping process to reduce mold wear.


2. The product surface is uneven

It is a very common problem that the product surface is uneven, which is mainly due to uneven extrusion force 

generated during processing, or problems such as small particles appearing during the coating or painting 

process. The solution to this problem is to use an appropriate die and reduce the extrusion force to ensure a 

more uniform pressure. Before painting or coating, make sure the product surface is clean and smooth to avoid 

uneven coating.

3. The processing machine makes too much noise

Excessive noise from sheet metal processing machines can affect employee health and productivity. Methods to

 reduce noise include using vibration-absorbing materials, reducing processing speeds, installing soundproof

 enclosures and maintaining regular machine maintenance.

4. Too many repeated processing times

During sheet metal processing, due to different processes and requirements, multiple repeated processing may 

be required, which may increase time and cost. To solve this problem, advanced processing equipment and more

 precise processing technology can be considered to improve disposable quality.

5. Deviations occur during processing

In sheet metal processing, deviations may occur due to differences in materials and sheet metal processing plant 

processing equipment. However, the way to control deviations is to use high-quality materials, more

sophisticated equipment, and perfect processing techniques. At the same time, timely detection and adjustment

are also required during the production process to ensure that the final product quality meets the requirements.

6. Low production efficiency

The production efficiency of a sheet metal processing plant may be affected by many factors, such as worker skill 

levels, machinery and equipment, etc. To improve production efficiency, continuous investment in employee 

training and equipment upgrades is required. Use advanced production management software to ensure the

effective execution of production plans, optimize the production process, and improve production efficiency.

7. Inaccurate dimensions of workpieces

Pits in sheet metal processing are one of the common problems in the production process. This problem is 

mainly caused by errors in machine equipment or operator operation. In order to reduce dimensional deviations,

 it is necessary to strictly follow operating specifications, maintain daily maintenance and upkeep of equipment, 

and use high-precision measuring tools to ensure that the final processing meets product requirements.

8. Material waste

Material waste in sheet metal processing can increase production costs. In order to reduce material waste, you 

can consider optimizing the processing technology, such as using efficient and low-loss stamping methods;

 reducing material surplus and waste, etc. During the production process, attention should also be paid to 

keeping the production site clean and tidy to prevent material waste and damage.

In short, for sheet metal processing plants, to solve the above problems, they need to focus on quality 

management, optimize processing technology and actively invest a large amount of resources to improve

product output and quality to ensure that they can truly meet customer needs and product standards.
