Sheet Metal Fabrication Services

Sheet metal fabrication is a manufacturing technology that creates precise metal components using various processes, such as cutting and bending.

Through MakerVerse, this method is cost-effective, fast, and can quickly produce large volumes.

How Sheet Metal Fabrication Works

A variety of tools and processes are used to fabricate sheet metal. Through MakerVerse, skilled operators operate these tools to create industrial-quality parts.

The first step is cutting the metal sheet to the specified size with tools such as laser cutters or CNC plasma cutters. Once the size is right, the sheet is formed and bent into the desired shape using tools like press brakes or rollers.

Finally, holes and other post-processing features are added as needed.

Popular Finishes

Bending

The sheet metal is bent into desired shapes using specialized equipment, such as press brakes. This process allows for creating various angles, curves, and forms, enabling the fabrication of complex metal components.

Brushed

A brushing technique creates a textured or satin-like finish on the surface of the sheet metal. This process involves the application of abrasive material, typically in a linear motion, resulting in a consistent and visually-appealing appearance.

Galvanized

The sheet metal is coated with a protective layer of zinc through a process called galvanization. This coating provides excellent corrosion resistance, making the metal suitable for outdoor or harsh environments.

Painted

Additional color is applied to the printed part, often by a professional spray painting system. The part is correctly prepared through accurate cleaning and a clearcoat to get the desired output.

Plated

A thin layer of a different metal, such as nickel, chrome, or zinc, is electrochemically deposited onto the surface. This plating process enhances the metal's appearance, corrosion resistance, and durability. It also enables customization by offering various plated finishes.
