What is Sheet Metal Fabrication?

Sheet metal fabrication is a set of manufacturing processes used to turn sheet metal stock into functional parts. The sheet metal is usually between 0.006 and 0.25 inches (0.015 and 0.635 centimeters) thick.

There are several processes that fall under the umbrella of ‘sheet metal fabrication’. These include cutting, bending and punching, and can be used either in tandem or individually.

Sheet metal fabrication can be used to create either functional prototypes or end-use parts, but end-use sheet metal parts generally require a finishing process before they are ready for market.

What is Sheet Metal Fabrication?

Do I need laser cutting, water jet cutting or plasma cutting?
The type of cutting machine used depends on the chosen material and the gauge of the sheet, as well as factors like desired lead time and tolerances.

We know which projects need which equipment, so you don’t need to specify a particular cutting machine.

Does it cost more to use multiple sheet metal forming processes?
In general, a part that is cut, bent and punched will cost more than a part that is, for example, just cut using a laser cutter.

However, most sheet metal parts demand a combination of forming processes, and this will not increase the price by a drastic amount.

Is there a minimum order quantity?
No. You can order a one-off prototype or 1,000+ units.
