Sheet Metal Process at a Glance

Examples of sheet metal fabrication
  • Standard Tolerance
    0.005 – 0.01"
  • Stock Surface Finish
    < 40 µin
  • Lead Time
    As few as 4 business days
  • Minimum Wall Thickness
    ~ 0.01 — 0.02"
Advantages
Cost-effective. If the product has standard thickness throughout and can be deformed or cut into the appropriate shape.
Limitations
Low durability. To successfully be jetted from an ink head, fairly low viscosity—and thus, typically less durable—materials are also required. Further, as a general rule, photopolymers weaken over time, especially when exposed to light.
Not a viable option if part geometry is not a standard thickness throughout.
Limited to certain metal alloys.
Example Machines
Stratasys Objet Eden 500v
3D Systems ProJet MJP 2500
RGD525
Rigur (RGD450)
VeroClear-RGD810
RGD5160-DM
TangoGray FLX950
VeroBlack
Example Materials
ABS-like Resin
PPE-like Resin
Rubber-like Resin
