An introduction to Sheet Metal Fabrication
Sheet metal fabrication is a manufacturing method that involves laser cutting, turret punching, folding by bending or press brake, welding, painting or powder coating and assembling sheets of metal. Typically sheet metal fabrication is used for large form-factor products – for example enclosures, chassis, cabinets, brackets etc.
What type of materials can we manufacture?
We have experiences with wide range of material including the following:
- Aluminum (A5052, A1100 etc)
- Stainless steel (SUS 301, SUS 304, SUS 316L etc)
- Bronze (C5210, C5191 etc)
- Mild steel
- Copper (C1100)
Sizes and tolerances we are used to
Our machines have capability of processing sheets as thin as 0.3mm, up to 22.0mm for mild steel and 16mm for stainless steel. Our largest table size for bending is 3000MM so we can process materials and sizes of up to 3 meters, equipped with 5-axis functions.
With over 20 years of sheet metal experience, we have been manufacturing for customers who demands a variety of quality finishes and tolerances. For instance, laser cutting have tolerances of +/- 0.1mm, fold to hole of 0.15mm, bend angle of +/- 1 degrees and burr of maximum 10% of thickness.
