How to Fabricate Sheet Metal?

Generally, we can shape sheet metal by cutting or forming. Since there are various ways of cutting and forming, we use many specific tooling, which may drive up costs. If you know more about fabrication procedures, you can design your sheet metal parts more efficiently.

Sheet metal typically comes in thicknesses ranging from 0.006 to 0.25 inches (0.015 to 0.635 centimeters). The fabrication begins with a flat sheet of metal. Your design files (3D files) show how to cut, form, and finish the sheet metal parts. We can cut and form the material and then join them together. We can make it into angel iron by bending, laser cutting, and bending the edges to make enclosure panels.

The metal sheet metal forming process is a widely used metal working technology that plastically deforms a thin metal sheet by an external step force, exceeding the material’s yield strength, bending and drawing into various complicated shapes without reducing the material itself. Metal sheet metal forming processes generally require the use of high quality molds to obtain the desired metal product.

Common Sheet Metal Finishes

The typical finishes for sheet metal parts are similar to those of other metal fabrication. You can select the best finish based on your needs and the characteristics of the material you use.
Below is a comparison of the most prevalent finishes and how they apply to sheet metal parts. For more general descriptions, information on roughness, color options, grit, etc., and images of each of these finishes, check out this page on surface finishes.
Finish Type Details Pros Cons Cost Application
Bead Blast

Glass beads or other abrasives shoot on the part at high-speed. It gives the part surface a smooth, matte appearance.

Removes tool marks and deburrs;

Adds uniform matte or satin surface finish;

Improve grip

Critical dimensions and surface roughness will be affected. $

Used mainly for visual purposes and to prepare surfaces for other coatings. We can combine it with anodizing.

Powder Coating It electrostatically applies a dry powder—typically a thermoplastic or thermoset polymer—to the metal surface.

Adds a decorative layer;

Increase corrosion resistance;

All metals are compatible;

Higher durability than paints

Internal surfaces are difficult to apply;

Compared to anodizing, it is a less dimensional control.

$ $ $

It adds a decorative and protective layer to all metals. And we can use it with bead blasting.


It is an electrochemical procedure for coating aluminium with a stable oxide layer. It creates a corrosion-resistant and wear-resistant layer.

Adds the material a smooth, matte texture;
Durable & good looking;
It can be applied easily to internal cavities and small parts;
A wide range of colors is available.

The electrical conductor of poor quality;
In comparison to powder coating, it is more brittle.

$ $ $ $ It can improve corrosion resistance and aesthetic appeal on aluminium, titanium, zinc, and magnesium.
Chromate Conversion Coating Parts are immersed in a chemical bath to form a corrosion-resistant conductive coating.

Corrosion Resistant;

Increases durability

Only a few colors are available (yellow, gray, white);
Abrasion resistance is low

$ $ Best for functional parts, not for decorative use.
Brushing Brushing makes a unidirectional satin finish by polishing the metal with grit. Eliminate machine marks Not resistant to corrosion $ It is mainly used for visual purposes.

Applications of Sheet Metal

There are dozens of sheet metal fabrication techniques available. For example, butting flat sheets, bending parts, drilling holes, adding slots, notching, etc. These techniques enable us to make complicated parts.
Furthermore, a wide range of materials can be used to fabricate. With the ability to withstand high heat, thermal conduction, electrical, and corrosive environments, sheet metal can be suitable for diverse applications.
Sheet metal products have the characteristics of lightweight, high strength, electrical conductivity, low cost, and good mass production performance. For example, in computer cases, mobile phones, and MP3s, sheet metal is an essential component. They are also used in manufacturing medical devices, car and truck (van) bodies, aircraft fuselages and wings, medical tables, building roofs (architecture), and many other applications. Sheet metal is used in practically every industry.

What are the advantages for sheet metal fabrication?

Advantages for Sheet Metal Fabrication

Efficiency and Accuracy

Through the use of the latest CAD/CAM and CNC technology and manufacturing equipment our sheet metal fabrication process is guaranteed to be efficient as well as accurate

Durability and Malleability

Sheet metals are strong enough to withstand high pressures, yet they are malleable. They can be formed into almost any shape, which means they are an ideal material for innovative architects and designers to work

Diversity Material

Sheet metal is of a low weight and thin gauge making transport and delivery of the product straightforward and cost effective.

Easily Repairable

Repairs can be carried out in a simple and straightforward way by removing an individual metal sheet from a structure and replacing it without having to dismantle an entire construction.

Low Cost

For all the reasons above – efficiency, durability, ease of transport and design – sheet metal fabrication offers customers a high quality yet inexpensive route to obtaining a product they can work with.
