Rolling of Perforated sheets and Mesh

Graepels have the ability to roll large thickness plates and thin material to a radius or to a full circumference where possible.

Curving sheets make them a lot more rigid, some design issues with regards to material can be overcome by curving material.

Curving sheets can work well particularly when they are back-lit as the lighting disperses through the perforations. The curvature of the panel allows for it to viewed clearly from different angles. Please enquire for our full capabilities.

Folding of Perforated sheets and Wire Mesh

Features of today’s machines make them very versatile, enabling accurate high quality parts to be produced, for customer’s sheet metal needs. Paired with 3D folding software it is possible to program and manufacture complex parts.

Graepels have invested in new machinery, expanding our capabilities for  various folding methods particularly for Architectural type products. For more information on our capabilities please contact us in either or UK and Ireland offices.

Cutting of Perforated Sheets and Woven Mesh

After perforation, sheets can be reduced in size to give customers a required screen size and blank un-perforated margins. It is also possible to cut through the perforations if no un-perforated margin is required.

There are various methods of cutting sheet metal and woven mesh using different machinery. Plasma, Laser and Water cutting services are also available.

Levelling of Perforated Sheets

Large Margins and the type of material used contributes to the flatness of a sheet. For example stainless steel hardens as it stretches during the punching process, these perforated sheets need to be flattened.

In order to achieve flatness sheets are ran through our levellers which equalises the stretching that occurs during perforation, the result is a flatter sheet.
