Sheet metal fabrication is a set of manufacturing processes for turning sheet metal into functional parts. For this guide, we have divided the processes into three categories: cutting, deformation, and assembly. Common sheet metals include steel, stainless steel, aluminum, zinc, and copper. Thinner gauges are more malleable, while thicker ones may be more suitable for heavy-duty parts with strenuous applications.
For partially flat or hollow parts, sheet metal fabrication can be a cost-effective alternative to processes like casting and machining. The process is also quick and produces minimal material wastage.Sheet metal fabrication is widely used for industrial and consumer parts and in specialist industries like automotive, aerospace, energy, and robotics.
