The most comprehensive showing for manufacturing process of stainless steel sculpture!
The stainless steel sculpture is one of the sculpture crafts, and its material is mainly stainless steel. Because stainless steel has the advantages of resistance to corrosion such as alkali and acid, it is often used in outdoor sculpture production.
The techniques used in the production of stainless steel sculptures are both casting and cold work.
The casting process is usually used for the production of stainless steel sculptures with realistic shapes and complicated details. Its advantage is that the sculpture effect is realistic, but the production cost is high.
The cold work process is suitable for the production of most stainless steel sculptures and is economical, so it is widely used in the field of stainless steel sculpture production. When making stainless steel sculptures in cold work, the more complex shapes need to be modeled first, while the sculptures with less complex shapes can be directly produced.
Before the forging of the metal, the craftsman will first design the sample, confirm the final shape and then mold it over to make the fiber-reinforced plastic. Models made of fiber-reinforced plastic will be stronger than clay and less susceptible to damage. Then start to comb the cold work process.
When cold processing is used, workers divide the outer surface of the sculpture into many small pieces, and each block is numbered. Stainless steel for cold processing of raw materials is to do a good job in advance of the different thickness of the stainless steel plate, workers need to be on the stainless steel plate on the basis of each small area, draw the corresponding shape. As the stainless steel plate is flat, and the appearance of stainless steel sculpture is three-dimensional, so each small block area can not be too large, and each small block also needs to leave room to facilitate the processing later.
After the completion of this process, the appearance of the three-dimensional stainless steel sculpture becomes a small piece of flat shape. The next step is to use the simplest and most initial tools to divide each piece of the piece by manual and continuous use and use the ductility of the metal to form a three-dimensional appearance that matches the appearance of the sculpture.
This process is the most laborious and at the same time produces high-intensity noise, and the workers and masters create one piece of beautiful art in such a noisy work environment.This repeated striking requires sufficient time and patience, and this process is only completed when each piece fits well with the corresponding area of the stainless steel sculpture.
After all the small pieces of the appearance are hit and shaped, each piece is connected by welding, which constitutes the appearance of the final stainless steel sculpture. Since the method of cold work is to shape the appearance of the sculpture by means of hitting, it is suitable for sculptures that are not particularly complicated in appearance.
The appearance of the semi-finished stainless steel sculpture after welding is relatively rough, which is far from the mirror polishing effect of the usual impression. After the welding is completed, the stainless steel sculpture needs to be polished by the final treatment to bring the final stainless steel sculpture to everyone. Although there are some power tools available for polishing this process, it still requires a lot of labor to be perfect.
