Sheet Metal Fabrication
Sheet metal fabrication is a subtractive fabrication process: all this means is that we fabricate our sheet metal products by cutting them out of a larger main sheet. Sheet metal fabrication can be performed on a variety of metals.
Plasma Table Drilling
Plasma cutting is a method for cutting sheet metal that revolves around using a material known as plasma to make precise cuts in the metal. Simply put, plasma is a superheated gas, scientists often refer to it as the 4th state of matter
Creating angles in sheet metal is usually accomplished through the process of sheet metal bending. Sheet metal bending is the process of using force and applying it to sheet metal in order to bend it into the desired shape. The equipment used.
Laser cutting, as the name suggests, is the process of using a thin laser beam to cut and melt away at sheet metal to create the exact specifications needed by the client. The thin beam is focused and magnified so it can burn or melt through the material.
While fast, powerful, and efficient, modern techniques like laser cutting and plasma cutting are usually relegated to cutting flat sheets of materials. They’re perfect for making precise, accurate cuts in large pieces of sheet metal.
Brake forming is one of the oldest forms still in use today! This method sees a piece or sheet of metal being formed along a straight axis. A V or U shaped punch is pressed against the piece of metal being worked on, and it presses.
Two of the most common methods on the market right now are metal inert gas (MIG for short) and tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding. MIG utilizes a feeding wire system, this wire is continuously fed throughout the entire process.
