42). Sustainability issues Oxyacetylene cutting is extremely energy intensive because of the phenomenal temperatures required to maintain the heat of the flame, along with the slow speed at which the torch needs to move, which increases cycle times. In addition, several harmful chemicals are produced from both the fuel and the work piece. org 16/09/2011 14:06 50 Sheet: Sheet-Metal Forming Sheet-Metal Forming Making objects from sheet metal is one of the earliest methods of human production. The Egyptians, for instance, made soft precious metals, such as gold, into sheets, from which they cut sometimes highly intricate forms.

Scale There is no maximum size for sheet forming. Tolerances Can be extremely high. In order to achieve perfect pitch in the whistle, tolerances are ±1/3000 inch. – The beauty of this process is that it allows the creation of a complex form with a highly precise component. – Reasonable tooling costs. indd 51 51 Relevant materials Soft metals such as brass, copper, and aluminum are particularly easy to form, but any sheet metal can be used. Typical products Sheet-metal forming is used to produce a number of products in a variety of industries—they range from brass musical instruments to computer housings and automobile bodies.

Capital investment Requires no tooling. Speed The latest generation of EDM machines can cut more than ½ square inch per minute, depending on the electrical resistance of the material and, of course, its thickness. A 2-inch piece of steel can be cut at a rate of approximately 1/6 inch per minute. Surface Wire EDM is well known for its ability to achieve an excellent finish. Types/complexity of shape The delicate wire can cut very intricate shapes from the toughest materials. Scale Depending on the material, the generator size, and the power, the process can cut through massive hunks of metal up to an astonishing 20 inches thick, although this will be very time-consuming, with cutting occurring at a rate of less than 1/25 inch per minute.
