?Sheet Metal Fabrication refers to the bending and shaping processes of sheet metal
Sheet metal fabrication is the manipulation of metal to create any type of component
that will be used in an end product. It can be used in almost any manufacturing field
including medical, computer, electronics, or appliances.
Sheet metals can be given all sorts of complex hollow shapes and sections, and the
equipment used for these processes, range from simple hand tools, to sophisticated
power-operated automatic machinery.
Sheet metal is simply metal formed into thin and flat pieces. It is one of the
fundamental forms used in metalworking, and can be cut and bent into a variety of
different shapes. The process of Sheet Metal Fabrication was developed ages ago
where hand tools were used to fabricate metals. Now various technologies have
evolved to accomplish the process.
There are many different metals that can be cut into sheet metal including the
following: Titanium, Aluminium, Nickel, Brass, Tin, Copper and Steel. Special metals
like Platinum, Gold and Silver can also be done but these are usually saved for special
decorative uses and can be very expensive.
Some of the types of Precision Sheet Metal Fabrication include processes like
Annealing (heating), Bending (straining), Cold forming, Cold rolling (shaping sheet
metal using rollers), Drawing (material is forced into a die with a punch to form a
cup-like shape), Forging (hammering or pressing), Rolling (reducing thickness of the
material), Extrusion (producing cylindrical bars or hollow tubes by forcing round
billets through one or more dies) and Spinning (forms axially symmetrical shapes).
There are various products that are created during precision sheet metal fabrication.
The most common objects produced are metal cabinets, enclosures, ventilation shafts,
hoods, exhaust systems, tanks and prototypes. Metal fabrication is also techniques are
different from other metal methods such as, for instance, casting where you need to
use some kind of mold to create the structure. In the case of fabrication, you utilize
hand tools or machinery and a little elbow grease to come up with the desired output.
