Sheet Metal Fabrication Capabilities
Sheet metal cutting
we have cutting-edge technology to transform sheet metal into the exact shapes and dimensions required for your project. Our machinery, including laser cutters, plasma cutters, and waterjet cutting systems, ensures precise and intricate cuts that meet the most demanding specifications.
Sheet metal bending and forming
Our Effective metal bending applies enough force beyond the metal’s yield strength to cause the material to deform without breaking. With different types of metal bending techniques available, you can achieve various shapes and geometries for your desired applications.
Sheet metal welding
Welding is the backbone of many sheet metal applications, and our welding professionals are masters of their craft. We use a range of welding techniques, including MIG, TIG, and spot welding, to join sheet metal components securely and seamlessly. Your finished product will exhibit exceptional strength and structural integrity.

What is Sheet metal fabrication?
Sheet metal fabrication is the process of turning flat metal sheets into metal structures or products, by cutting, punching, folding and assembling. Different metals, such as brass, steel, copper, tin, titanium, and aluminum, are formed and configured using sheet metal fabrication.

Surface finishing for sheet metal parts
- Painting can be used to finish metal sheet parts.
- Powder coating involves applying a dry powder paint to the parts, which is then baked onto the part. This method is often used for parts that need to be used in a harsh environment.
- Anodizing creates a durable, corrosion-resistant finish on aluminum parts. This is a chemical and electrical process which causes a thin oxide layer to form on the surface of the parts.
- Electroplating involves applying a thin layer of metal to the surface of the parts.
- Polishing uses abrasive materials to create a smooth, shiny surface finish on the parts.
- Brushing use abrasive belts to draw traces on the surface of a part.
