SHEET METAL TRAINING

Look around you and try to recognize the items made of sheet metal. Do you find more than 90% of metallic items made of sheet metal? It should not be surprising to you as it is the fact of today’s mechanical and manufacturing industry. In more than 90% cases, we use sheet metal for manufacturing of metallic items.

WHY SHEET METAL IS SO WIDELY USED

Top 5 reasons

  1. Sheet metals are available in wide range of different technical grades – It helps to save manufacturing cost by eliminating metallurgical processes to obtain desired properties.

  2. Low weight to thickness ratio – Easier handling

  3. Sheet metals are strong and durable – These properties make it ideal for making high strength products for harsh applications

  4. It is malleable – It provides more designing options

  5. Easy to repair – Replacement and repair is efficient, maintenance is cheaper

WHY SHOULD I LEARN SHEET METAL DOMAIN

Think about your dream work as a mechanical engineer and see how the sheet metal comes in to the picture. If your dream is to:

  • Design new fancy, eye-catching bike, car, or any other vehicle – Would not you end up working on sheet metal?

  • Make mechanical products, like, vehicles, consumer goods, which are cost efficient to operate – Would not we conclude to use sheet metal to make it lighter yet stronger?

  • Design low manufacturing cost products – Would not you select right grade sheet metal to make the product, rather than going to time-consuming and costly machining process?

  • Design entirely new product, say flying bike or car – Would not you consider using sheet metal if it has to a metallic product, as more than 90% solutions are based on sheet metal?

 

Whichever dream work you have in mind, it will lead to the utilization of sheet metal, again and again. The reason is simple, it is used in more than 90% case of the metallic manufacturing industry. So why not be an expert of something so important. We advice you to go through a proper Sheet Metal training designed as per work process followed in the industry. If you are able to design and also make a product of your after going through any Sheet Metal course then you should consider yourself to be on right track. At Azuko we believe in working on real industrial stuff only. 

HOW IS THE JOB POTENTIAL

 

HOW ABOUT CAREER GROWTH

Visit Google and search for “sheet metal industry jobs” You will be amazed to see the number of openings in India, UAE and rest of the world. Wherever you find mechanical industry, you will find numerous jobs for sheet metal.

 

Sheet metal is an evergreen area of work in the mechanical industry. Therefore you can plan your career in the sheet metal industry.

Why is it called Domain training

How long it takes to complete the course

Domain training is industry specific specialization training to learn about one particular area in detail to enable the trainee to start working in given area. Domain training is given to those professional who want to work on best and latest technology and grow faster in their career. At high level, Sheet Metal training will cover following points:

  • Basics of the sheet metal industry

  • Types of sheet metals and their properties

  • Design approach and considerations

  • Manufacturing, maintenance and cost consideration

  • Development of flat blank layout for manufacturing

  • Finishing of sheet metal part.

You should plan for 120 to 260 hours of training and practice, to be ready for the industry. Here 120 hours is devoted to learning of Sheet Metal industry concepts, best practices, design approach, etc., and remaining hours are utilized for learning software and practicing for sheet metal industrial exercises and projects. Based on time you spend, you can plan to complete the sheet metal course in 3 months to 6 months, depending on your speed and practice.
