The Most Detailed Production Process Of Large Outdoor Metal Sculptures
Modern spaces are inseparable from the decoration and beautification of large outdoor metal sculptures, so YouFine also has many large outdoor metal sculptures. We have made stunning outdoor large metal sculptures for many customers. There are also many customers who would be curious about how our large stainless steel sculptures are made. Today we are here to tell you about the production process of these large outdoor stainless steel sculptures:
Step 1: Determine the Design:
Usually, the first step is for our clients to select their favorite designs from our large outdoor metal sculptures for sale catalog Simply put, determine the design. Then we would consult our customers for the sculpture needs, such as environment, content, form, color, etc., and then we would formulate a complete set of stainless steel large sculpture plans according to these needs.
Step 2: Model optimization and Scale-Up:
For a simple large outdoor metal sculpture, we could directly enlarge the temporary internal structure based on its 3D model. The calculation of the skeleton scale size is very accurate, and the joints must be accurate, otherwise there would be differences and the expected effect would not be achieved.
Step 3: The Production of Support Skeleton:
In the production process of large outdoor metal sculptures, the production of sculpture load-bearing skeletons is very important. After the modeling skeleton is completed, reserve the production space for the load-bearing skeleton. Next is the production of the stainless steel main structure. For large stainless steel sculptures, according to the force analysis and load-bearing, the internal main structure needs to be supported, which requires analysis and calculation of the force of the structure, so as to design a reasonable internal steel structure and complete the production. Finally, the finished stainless steel surface and internal structure are welded.
Step 4: Cut the Stainless Steel Sheet:
When making large stainless steel sculptures, the tools used are electric scissors. Therefore, the hand must be steady when cutting. The large stainless steel sculpture material after cutting should be planed according to the shape required for the job. Do not leave any damage on the surface of the sheet, which could avoid leaving defects after polishing and make the finished stainless steel sculpture better.
Step 5: Forging the Stainless Steel Sheet:
When forging a point, use the round head of the hammer to let it forge continuously, evenly and regularly. Width, gap and force must remain the same. Do not knock at would, otherwise it would destroy the overall sense of the stainless steel sculpture. For carbon steel plate and stainless steel polishing, grinding wheel is used to polish the welding seam and redundant parts of the workpiece, so that the workpiece is polished brightly and visually beautiful. After the stainless steel plate is cut into pieces, it should be forged. Stainless steel plate is forged on a die. Depending on the shape of the model, the material is cut and forged according to its fluctuation. It could be forged on any tangible solid object. Afterwards, the forged stainless steel plate was compared with the model. Once each forged block is considered correct and fits the model exactly, we could weld them together top-to-bottom or bottom-to-top, and each piece should be adjusted to the model of the large stainless steel sculpture.
Step 6: Soldering:
After forging the stainless steel sheet, we are going to weld the outdoor large metal sculpture. In order to ensure the quality and firmness of the modern sculpture, YouFine’s craftsmen would use full welding instead of spot welding to ensure the firmness of the sculpture. We pay attention to detail and quality of sculpture. Therefore, our stainless steel outdoor large sculptures have strong wind resistance and are durable. It could be used outdoors for many years without any quality issues.
Step 7: Sanding:
First, preliminary grinding is performed. Use a grinding wheel to flatten the weld and any excess. Secondly, the polished surface sculpture also needs to be further polished with a soft wheel (cloth wheel) and added with polishing paste to make the final artwork brighter and have a good visual aesthetic. Stainless steel grinding, specifically using a 100-angle grinder, first use a 100*4-6mm grinding disc to smooth the welding surface, and then use a 60-80 mesh impeller to perform partial fine grinding until the stainless steel surface is evenly ground and there is no obvious connection. Sew up. Stainless steel polishing, 150 straight sand machine, 150 thousand impeller abrasive, method along the stainless steel surface layer from left to right, from top to bottom uniformly polished until the stainless steel surface layer lines are clear.
Of course, if you need it, you could also achieve different surface treatment effects according to your requirements, generally polishing, painting, drawing, etc.
In this way, a complete forged large outdoor metal sculpture is completed. Forging technology makes up for some defects on the surface of the casting process to a certain extent, making the surface effect of the sculpture more perfect. If you are looking for a suitable supply factory for large metal sculptures in public places, YouFine would be your best choice. We not only have a wealth of large outdoor metal sculptures for sale for you to choose from, but also accept customized services.
