Sheet Metal Fabrication Service

  • What Types of Sheet Metal Are There?

    There are many different types of sheet metal, each with its own unique characteristics and uses. Some common types of sheet metal include stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, and galvanized steel.

    The thickness and composition of the sheet metal will determine its durability, strength, and flexibility, as well as its suitability for various applications.

    For example, aluminum sheet metal is lightweight and corrosion-resistant, making it a good choice for use in the aerospace and automotive industries. Stainless steel, on the other hand, is highly durable and resistant to rust and corrosion, making it a popular choice for use in the construction, food and beverage, and medical industries. Copper and brass sheet metal are also commonly used for their corrosion-resistant properties and attractive appearance.

    Design Considerations for Sheet Metal Fabrication?


    Some of the most popular materials for sheet metal include:

    • Steel:

      Steel is a strong and durable metal that is widely used in the construction, automotive, and manufacturing industries. It is often galvanized, which involves coating the metal with a layer of zinc to protect it from corrosion.

    • Aluminum:

      Aluminum is a lightweight and corrosion-resistant metal that is commonly used in the aerospace, automotive, and construction industries. It is also used in the manufacturing of beverage cans and other products.

    • Polishing:

      Anodizing is a process in which the surface of the sheet metal is treated with an electrolytic solution to create a protective oxide layer. This can improve the corrosion resistance and appearance of the metal.

    • Stainless steel:

      Stainless steel is a type of steel that contains chromium, which makes it highly resistant to rust and corrosion. It is commonly used in the food and beverage, medical, and construction industries.

    • Copper:

      Copper is a soft, ductile metal that is known for its high electrical and thermal conductivity. It is commonly used in the electrical, plumbing, and construction industries.

    • Brass:

      Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc that is known for its durability, corrosion resistance, and attractive appearance. It is commonly used in the production of plumbing fixtures, decorative items, and musical instruments.

    • Galvanized steel:

      Galvanized steel is a type of steel that has been coated with a layer of zinc to protect it from corrosion. It is commonly used in the construction and automotive industries.

Sheet Metal Fabrication Techniques

There are several techniques used in sheet metal fabrication, including cutting, bending, and forming. Cutting techniques include shearing, punching, laser cutting, and waterjet cutting. Bending techniques include brake pressing, roll bending, and slip rolling. Forming techniques include deep drawing, spinning, and stretching. Sheet metal can also be welded together using various welding techniques, such as MIG welding and TIG welding. Additionally, sheet metal can be finished using a variety of methods, such as painting, powder coating, and plating, to improve its appearance and protect it from corrosion.

  • Sheet metal stamping
    Sheet metal stamping
    Sheet metal stamping uses a similar cutting mechanism to the guillotine, however, it uses a molded metal tool (called a die) to cut.
  • Laser cutting
    Laser cutting
    Laser cutting uses a high-energy beam enhanced by a lens or mirror to burn/evaporate the material to form the cut.
  • Sheet metal bending
    Sheet metal bending
    Bending is the basic process of forming sheet metal into functional parts. The sheet metal is bent using called a bending machine.
