Sheet metal processing

We process 440 tons of sheet metal per year

We use methods of punching and flat shaping of sheet metal on CNC machines. Based on supplied drawings we punch out complex shapes from sheet metal, which are then bent on CNC brake presses. The prepared products are then assembled using manual and robotic welding, riveting and other fastening elements.

Advantages of CNC sheet metal working

  • diverse range of product alterations
  • precision of CNC technology
  • possibility to change component design during a project

Key benefits of cooperation with Lakum

  • we avoid extra costs through consultation before and after the start of production
  • we can react flexibly to our clients’ acute situations
  • we ensure a further product processing - cataphoresis , powder coating , zinc plating or a combination of them

Complicated? Not for us

Years of experience and close cooperation with designers during development allows us to create the ideal design for parts, and this means that we avoid problems during their production and thus needless costs. As a result, the production is smooth and we can adhere to the promised delivery dates.

We handle 0.7-3.0mm material thickness

This is production with a higher proportion of manual work, but it does mean that we are also able to cooperate on more complicated orders. We work with sheet metal with a thickness ranging from 0.7 mm to 3.0 mm (in rare cases up to 4.0 mm). We work with steel, stainless steel, galvanised steel, aluminium and other materials. We are capable of manufacturing virtually anything up to a weight of approximately 50 kg and a reasonable handling size. We have experience in single-piece productions and prototypes and also larger production series up to approximately 100,000 items per year.

Lakum and its affiliated company Massag ensures the further finalisation of production by tumbling, degreasing and subsequent surface finish of products either by cataphoresis, powder coating or galvanisation.

Sodecia / anti-corrosion surface treatment
Case study

Sodecia / anti-corrosion surface treatment

Since the start of our business relationship with the company Sodecia we have implemented 43 projects for leading automobile manufacturers. In practice, this means more than 25,963,583 surface finished parts. Project of surface finish for mass produced parts: End customer FORD – Parts BRKT STRT TL/GT LH/RH and Pivot Asy Gate Strut LH/RH requires surface finish complying with high standards and norms. It involves a combination of two technological procedures: ● zinc electroplating according to standard FORD WSS-M1P85-B3● cataphoretic painting according to standard FORD WSS-M2P177-C3 Project of surface finish of special material: The requirement for coating of product Sodecia Wasserkasten Stirnwand for AUDI was demanding in many respects. The product requires coating according to standard VW13750 Ofl x634 with minimum coating thickness of 35 microns. As this is a relatively large flat part, moreover made of the special material CR3-EG47/47-E-PO, coating in the required scope is technologically demanding. The preparation of the entire process required a large volume of sampling. Thanks to the experience of our experts, we discovered during the sampling that the product is susceptible to scratching. We fine-tuned the parameters and details of the entire process. We included a completely new product packaging approach in the process, and damage has no longer occurred. Completed, coated components reach the end customer at the assembly site in good order and with no faults caused during transport.
