Sheet Metal Parts and Prototypes
Many different metals and alloys can be used for creating parts and prototypes in the sheet metal fabrication process. Depending on the design and application (industrial uses, decorative applications, etc.), parts can be made using metals such as:
- Stainless Steel
The metals are formed either into flat sheets or coils, both varying in thickness.
What Types of Sheet Metal Can Be Produced?
Foils are metals pressed into very thin sheets which bend and tear easily. Foils are most often used in household applications – such as household aluminum foil. Malleable metals make the best foils; they can be pressed into equally thin sheets more easily.
Metal leaf is an extremely thin layer of metal – sometimes only a few atoms thick. Due to the incredibly thin nature of metal leaf, special brushes must be used to apply it. Metal leaf is generally made for decorative purposes using brass, copper, gold, palladium, platinum, and silver.
Metal formed into sheets over 6mm thick is referred to as metal plate. Metal plate can be cut, bent, rolled, stamped, hemmed, etched, embossed, and much more to achieve your desired effect.
Metal coils are produced to specification by taking larger coils or sheets of metal and pressing them into coils of exact thickness. Metal coils have numerous applications across a multitude of industries.
Your Satisfaction is Our Goal
We want you to be completely satisfied with your product. Our engineers are standing by to answer any questions you may have, and can aid with the selection of materials, or in choosing a sheet metal manufacturing process.
Manufacturing with Sheet Metal
Sheet metal has an incredible number of applications for nearly every industry. Sheet metals can be sourced in nearly any thickness required, then formed into complex shapes or cut with incredible precision. Conductive capabilities, corrosion resistance, heat tolerance and more are all reasons to consider sheet metal in producing your next part or prototype.
Metals can be manipulated to accommodate your needs using many different manufacturing processes. The design, requirements, and materials will all factor in determining which sheet metal manufacturing process is best suited for your project. Some of the more-common processes include:
- Bending the metals into shape
- Hemming to reinforce metal edges
- Laser cutting for precision designs
- Punching designs directly from a sheet of metal
- Seaming sheets of metal together creating a joint
- Stamping images or designs into metals
- Water-jet cutting, using jets of highly-pressurized water for a controlled erosion
