What Is Sheet Metal Fabrication?

Sheet metal fabrication is a manufacturing process that involves transforming flat metal sheets into various shapes and components. It encompasses a range of techniques, including cutting, bending, welding, and finishing, to create finished products from sheet metal. Sheet metal fabrication is widely used in industries such as construction, automotive, aerospace, electronics, and manufacturing to create a wide range of products, including enclosures, panels, frames, brackets, and more.

Our company specializes in delivering comprehensive and top-notch sheet metal fabrication solutions to meet a wide range of customer needs.

Sheet Metal Materials Available

Aluminum is a lightweight and highly malleable sheet metal material. It offers excellent corrosion resistance, good conductivity, and is often chosen for its aesthetic appeal. Aluminum alloys, such as 3003, 5052, and 6061, are commonly used for sheet metal fabrication.

Copper is valued for its superior electrical conductivity and thermal conductivity. It is often selected for applications that require high conductivity, such as electrical components and heat exchangers. Copper is also known for its attractive reddish-brown color that develops a natural patina over time. 

Bronze is made by mixing copper with tin plus some additional alloying elements that enhance certain characteristics. Bronze for sheet metal fabrication must have high cold-workability and ideally should not work-harden too readily. Some bronze sheet materials tend to work-harden during forming and as such require annealing cycles to prevent cracks or tears during bending operations.

Stainless steel is a corrosion-resistant and hygienic sheet metal material. It is widely used in applications that require high durability, strength, and resistance to heat and chemicals. Different grades of stainless steel, such as 304, 316, and 430, offer varying levels of corrosion resistance and mechanical properties.

Steel is a versatile and widely used sheet metal material known for its strength, durability, and resistance to corrosion. It comes in various grades, such as carbon steel, stainless steel, and galvanized steel, offering different levels of strength and corrosion resistance.

Titanium is a lightweight and strong sheet metal material with excellent corrosion resistance, making it suitable for aerospace, marine, and chemical processing industries. It is also known for its biocompatibility, making it an ideal choice for medical implants.

Sheet Metal Applications

Sheet metal is a versatile manufacturing process for a range of metal components. The process can support high-volume commodity products and low-volume, one-of-a-kind applications. Common sheet metal parts include:

Electrical enclosure
Parts for computer electronics
Advantages of Sheet Metal Fabrication
The sheet metal fabrication process is ideal for metal components and can support both prototyping and production quantities.
  • Low material waste
  • Multiple finishing options
  • Can cost-effectively scale to production volumes

Hardcoat Anodizing: The Ultimate Surface Treatment for Aluminum

Hardcoat anodizing (Type III) enhances aluminum with superior durability, wear resistance, and corrosion protection. The process involves immersing aluminum in sulfuric acid and applying high current density to form a thick oxide layer. Benefits include increased hardness, corrosion resistance, and electrical insulation. Commonly used in aerospace, automotive, and industrial applications, hardcoat anodizing meets standards like MIL-A-8625 and ASTM, ensuring high performance and reliability.


Common SPI Mold Classification: A Detailed Overview

SPI mold classifications range from Class 101 to Class 105, each with distinct specifications and intended applications. Understanding these classifications helps manufacturers select the appropriate mold for their production needs, balancing factors like production volume, cost, and durability. Below is a detailed overview of each SPI mold class.
