sheet metal fabrication

Sheet metal fabrication is a subtractive manufacturing process involving forming parts from thin metal sheets by cutting, bending, folding, punching, and assembling. Sheet metal can be cut, bent, or stretched into almost any shape, usually by cutting and burning the metal. Sheet metal parts are usually highly precise and durable, making them particularly preferred by engineers to use for end-use applications such as enclosures, brackets, and chassis.

If you rightly have demands on custom sheet metal fabrication or outsourcing manufacturing of your sheet metal parts to a reliable supplier in China, Runsom Precision may be your premier choice. You have access to get in touch with our team of knowledgeable engineers and machinists to get a fast and cost-effective solution for any kind of parts.

How Does Sheet Metal Fabrication Work?

metal sheet

The sheet metal fabrication processes start with removing materials from thin sheet metal stock placed on a flat bed following programmed part patterns to form desired shapes by cutting tools. This operation can be finished with a variety of subtractive machining processes. A sheet metal punch, shear, laser, waterjet, or plasma can generate additional features such as internal holes and edge features according to the part geometry. The second stage is material deformation. After being cut, the parts reach the press brake where they are formed into the final geometries with the forming process such as bending. The last stage is to assemble pieces of sheet metal or fit them together with other components that are not made from sheet metal into a complete product. In many cases, surface finishing operations are needed to enhance mechanical properties.

Advantages of Sheet Metal Fabrication

The sheet metal fabrication process is the most cost-effective choice for on demand production of sheet metal parts and prototypes with uniform wall thickness.

Sheet Metal Fabrication Processes Available at Runsom Precision

Thin sheets of metal can be manipulated through different processes as they are more malleable than thick workpieces. Moreover, sheet metal fabrication offers competitive prices for low-volume prototypes and saves costs for high-volume production runs. Runsom Precision offers high precision cutting, bending, punching, and welding, as well as assembly services.

Sheet Metal Materials Available at Runsom Precision

There is a multitude of materials available for sheet metal fabrication. Here are the materials commonly used for sheet metal fabrication. Aluminum is one of the popular materials used for sheet metal manufacturing and its four most common grades are especially suited as sheet metal, that is, 3003-H14, 5052-H32, 6061-T6, and 1100-H14. Stainless steel grade 304 is an ideal option to fabricate sheet metal because of its great weldability, formability, and corrosion tolerance. Grade 316 is recommended when your applications are marine products, valves, pumps, or chemical equipment. For brass, it has high formability, strength, corrosion resistance, and conductivity, so it’s also a perfect material used in the sheet metal fabrication process.
