Sheet Metal Material Selection Guide

How Does JCL Help With Your Sheet Metal Selection Guide?

When you are designing your products and considering its structures and functions, making right sheet metal material selection is most important. An ideal material is fundamental to strength, cosmetics and reliability, especially for sheet metals which have so many types and specs available in the market. JCL has profound understanding of sheet metal and provide sheet metal material selection service such as:

  • Material to Use:  If you designated the sheet metal fabrication materials and deep drawing materials, we will present the material source certification and test report for your approval; if material is not confirmed, we will present our material spreadsheets for your review and you will make a solid sheet metal material selection after receiving our evaluation.

  • Forming Simulation: It is a necessary step to consolidate your sheet metal material selection after reviewing our databases. You will see extrusion forming,  flow behaviors, thinning effects, stress distributions and potential defects in the report. It allows manufacturers to predict and optimize the stamping and forming, reducing the need for physical trial and error.

  • Property Optimization: Simulation provides valuable insights into the formed part's dimensions, strains, stress distribution, and springback. Our engineers are able to review and adjust the properties of material or even change a new catalog to avoid the risks during forming, this reconsideration will substantially reduce trial time and engineering cost.

  • Heat Treatment: Forming may change the material's properties such as internal stresses, proportional weakening and unestimated surface conditions. You may need tempering or annealing to resolve these situations. You can rely on JCL to select the right heat treatment methods based on the material type, process requirements, and desired properties.
