KDM Sheet Metal Handle Fabrication
In this guide, you will find all information you are looking for about sheet metal handle.
Whether you want to learn about material type, design or features – you will find all information right here.
Sheet metal handle is a handle built using metals that are thinner than 6mm but thicker than a foil.
Figure 1 Sheet metal handle
- It should be lightweight
- It should have rust proof coating
- It should be pre-drilled
It is commonly used because it is cheap and easy to wield although it is less ductile and harder to cut. Steel is an alloy of carbon and Iron and vulnerable to corrosion
- Carbon Steel
Because of its high content of carbon, it gets its name Carbon steel. This makes it stronger but this also makes it harder to get it into the right shape.
- Stainless Steel
It is popularly used because of its high content of chromium content that prevents it from rusting. Stainless steel is much heavier than other standard steel.
However, there are other materials that can be used such as
This is a lightweight metal that is expensive than the standard steel and responds well with machining. It also does not rust
This material responds well to bending creating beautiful shapes and does not rust.
It has very strong acoustic properties since it is a combination of zinc and copper.
There are different methods one can use to fabricate sheet metal handle such as: –
- Roll forming
This process is done by bending or rolling cold sheets into desired shapes. Punching of handles is done through roll forming which can be incorporated into the assembly line process
This process is less expensive as it uses no heat energy and flexible too
- Tubular Hydroforming
This method provides better bending and stiffness properties while using minimum amount of stainless materials. pieces also emerge while in nearly finished state since no supplementary wielding and machining is needed.
This method leaves the stainless steel handles with better qualities.
- Tubular Stamping
This method is used to produce more complex tubular parts. It is more superior since it produces class-A finishes, less weight and cost saving compared to other methods.
Sheet metal handle comprises of different components that gives it the desired end result such as carbon and chromium.
These components make it strong, durable, corrosion resistance and prevents rusting also.
Surface finishing is important because it provides protection against corrosion and many more.
- Hot Dip Galvanizing
This is where steel is immersed in molten zinc to form a coating with the zinc.
- Continuous Galvanizing
This involves passing through molten zinc in an automated plant
- Thermal Spraying
Here a special gun is used to spray molten zinc on the steel surface. However, this method cannot be used inside hollow tubes
- Cathode Protection
Zinc anode is connected to steel components in the presence of an electrolyte
Figure 2 Sheet metal handle
Depending on the type of material used, sheet metal handle can be used in various parts.
These can range from cookware handles, boats components, pharmaceutical processing components, food handling equipment etc.
Sheet metal handles are as strong as the materials used, sheet metals can be made stronger by bending process.
Reinforcement also can be done to improve its strength.
Mounting a sheet metal handle might require only a screw and screw driver to be mounted.
However, there are cases where rivet gun is used to mount the sheet metal handle on surfaces of an appliance.
Sheet metal handle can be accustomed to meet your specifications.
When doing this certain information like material, measurement, colour and total linear footage.
Just like any other design, sheet metal handle has a specified thickness.
The thickness ranges from 0.5mm to 6mm.
Figure 3 Sheet metal handle dimension
Sheet metal handles have critical dimensions which must be considered in order to achieve a standardised result.
These critical dimensions include: –
- Bend Line
This is the straight-line on the sheet surface that defines end of the level flange and starting of the bend.
- Bend Radius
Bend radius is the distance from the bend axis to the surface inside between the bend lines.
- Bend Angle
This angle is measured between the ben flange and original position. It can also be specified into the bend radius and sheet thickness
- Neutral Axis
It is neither stretched nor compressed hence remain at constant length. The location of a neutral axis is calculated as ratio of neutral axis(T) to material thickness(t).
- K- Factor
This depends on factors such as material, bending operation and bend angle. It can be greater than 0.25, however it cannot exceed 0.50.
K-Factor is given by T/t, where T is the distance of the neutral axis and t is the material thickness.
K-factor is important as it is used to calculate flat patterns as it is related to how long the material is stretched during bending.
- Bend Allowance
This allowance when added to the flange length should be equal to the total flat length.
- Minimum Hole Diameter
Holes diameter should not very small since they may lead to breakage of materials during operation. The hole diameter needs to be equal or more than the sheet metal thickness.
- Strong And Durable
They have the ability to withstand high pressure and heat than other materials like plastics. Those made from aluminium or stainless steel also have the ability to resist corrosion, wear and tear
Using the right equipment, they can be bent into numerous shapes yet it still retains its strength. They also have the ability to be compressed and stretched without breaking or cracking.
Metal can be recycled back to something else and also environmentally strategic
