What is sheet metal fabrication?

Sheet metal fabrication is a manufacturing method that involves cutting and bending sheets of metal to form different shapes.

Sheet metal fabrication is more cost-effective than CNC machining when it comes to metal components with uniform wall thickness.

Available materials for sheet metal

Available sheet metal fabrication processes

Our network of Manufacturing Partners gives you easy access to sheet metal fabrication capabilities to serve all your manufacturing needs.

Name Description Allowable sheet thickness
Laser cutting This manufacturing process uses
a high-power laser beam to cut a material sheet.
1-6mm (depending on material)
Bending This manufacturing process uses dies to produce a U-shape,
V- shape or channel shape along
a straight axis in ductile materials.
1-6mm (depending on material)
