An Introduction to Sheet Metal Part Fabrication

Metal fabrication is the process of creating metal structures through methods of cutting, bending, and assembling. It is a value-added process involving the creation of machines, parts, and structures from various raw materials. Metal fabrication typically begins with drawings with precise dimensions and specifications. Both human labor and automation are commonly used in the process. A fabricated product is called a fabrication, and shops specializing are called Fab shops.

The cutting of sheet metal is done by sawing metal sheets with CNC waterjets and CNC lasers. Bending is completed by a series of press brakes and tube benders, as they help create bends at predetermined angles. Assembling or joining of sheet metal pieces is done by welding, riveting or threaded fasteners.

MetzFab Industries makes sheet metal parts using laser cutting, waterjet cutting, bending, band sawing, drilling, counter sinking, threading, tapping and many other processes.
