At OPENEX - a China custom fabrication service supplier - we can bend sheet metal as well as roll form numerous profiles into just about any shape. Our tooling also allows us to perform many subsequent processes that can create holes or cutouts in any 2D geometric shape, multi angle bends and roll form into complex contours.
Overall, our metal fabrication service is categorized into two very distinctive disciplines, forming and cutting. The forming processes are those in which force is applied to shape and form the material. Forming is a process that bends or roll forms the sheet into the desired shape. Cutting is a processes that applies force and causes the material to fail or separate. The most common forms of cutting are shearing and die cutting. Other cutting processes remove material by the use of Laser, Plasma or abrasion in the case of waterjet cutting instead of shearing force.
