Sheet Metal Designs

Sheet metal design domain embraces a very vast arena of industries e.g. Automotive, ship building, furnitures, heavy and construction engineering, aerospace, utensiles and house holds items etc. in automotive, usually a thru understanding of how steel ingots are made, how is the melting of steel occurs, what is meant by 'Killing of steel', what are cold rolled and hot rolled steels and finally how these are 'Rolled' to either hot rolled sheet nr cold rolled sheets. As a sheet metal designer in automotive, the basic understanding of such skills is of prime importance and it literally pays off when your get up higher in the ladder in a company .
