What is Sheet Metal Fabrication?

Sheet metal processing refers to a metalworking process that involves shaping thin metal sheets (typically steel, aluminum, stainless steel, etc.) into various parts and components through a series of manufacturing steps. These processes may include cutting, stamping, bending, welding, assembly, and more. Sheet metal processing is commonly used for manufacturing metal parts, enclosures, panels, chassis, and other components. It offers high precision, versatility, and complexity, making it suitable for a wide range of industries such as automotive, electronics, appliances, construction, and more. This method is often employed to produce custom parts and prototypes due to its ability to achieve high-precision metal shaping at relatively low costs.

Shared-Factory provides a wide range of sheet metal processing services, capable of manufacturing nearly any parts you require

Stainless Steel

Corrosion resistance is the primary distinction between stainless steel and regular steel, with all stainless steels containing at least 10.5% chromium. The addition of chromium makes these steels more corrosion-resistant. Different grades of this material contain various alloying elements that can further enhance corrosion resistance, heat treatment capabilities, and machining properties.

Primary Application Industries: Medical, automotive, aerospace, robotics, automation, and machinery.

Subtypes:Stainless Steel 15-5,Stainless Steel 17-4,Stainless Steel 18-8,Stainless Steel 303,Stainless Steel 304,Stainless Steel 316,Stainless Steel 416,Stainless Steel 420,Stainless Steel 440C,Stainless Steel 410

Common Surface Treatments (Post-Processing)

During the CNC machining process, visible tool marks may be left on the surface as material is removed to create the desired shape. Typically, some post-processing is required to address this issue. There are various types of surface treatments available, each serving different purposes. At Shared-Factory, we offer a range of common surface treatments aimed at enhancing both functionality and aesthetics.

Shared-Factory offers a comprehensive range of services including cutting, bending, punching, welding, and assembling. Our state-of-the-art machinery ensures precision and high-quality finishes for all projects.

Sheet metal fabrication tolerances refer to the acceptable deviations for features of sheet metal parts required for accurate and consistent installation and integration.

For sheet metal parts, ISO 2768-mk is usually used to ensure proper control of the elements of geometry and size. The following will show you 7 tolerance standards range of linear and angular dimensions, flatness & straightness, cylindricity, and circularity.

   K factor is the sheet metal process is the ratio of neutral axis to material thickness. This value changes with respect to the various physical properties and thickness of materials used.

Every aspect of a sheet metal fabrication project comes with an associated cost — the design, possible prototype, finishing processes, and others. Asides from the process itself, materials also cost money. To learn some tips for reducing custom sheet metal fabrication costs, you can learn from this article.
