Sheet metal parts are found almost everywhere and Industrial Man can help you quickly and accurately make your enclosures, brackets, assemblies, weldments, cabinets, housings and other sheet metal parts and prototypes. Our MOQ is one and offer options for low/mid volumes.
How It Works – Sheet metal is a comprehensive cold working process for metal sheets (usually below 6mm), including shearing, punching/cutting/compounding, folding, riveting, splicing, forming (such as car body), etc. Its notable feature is the uniform thickness of the same part. Generally speaking, the basic equipment of sheet metal process includes Shear Machine, CNC Punching Machine/Laser, Plasma, Water Jet Cutting Machine, Bending Machine and various auxiliary equipment Such as: decoiler, leveling machine, deburring machine, spot welding machine, etc. Generally, the four most important steps in the sheet metal process are shearing, punching/cutting, folding/rolling, welding, surface treatment, etc. Sheet metal encompasses a wide range of processes to manipulate and shape sheets of metal into the required geometry. Industrial Man use bending, laser cutting, punches, welding and other processes to manufacture your sheet metal parts and prototypes.
The fastest method that will save you wastage of money and resources when working with metal sheets for prototyping is Sheet Metal Fabrication.
The flexibility of the materials, ease of operations used, and the ability to reach specific thicknesses that can be achieved make it popular.Ares is fully capable of handling your Sheet Metal Fabrication services. This ranges from high-quality bending, cutting, punching, and welding with top-notch machines.
The result is producing durable parts with vast materials skillfully manufactured by our technicians with substantial experience that will meet your exact requirements.
We will show you why Sheet Metal Fabrication services will ultimately benefit you.
Sheet Metal Fabrication comprises manufacturing processes that are carried out on sheet metal to turn them into various parts. These parts can be end-use parts that will be further worked upon to finish or functional parts in prototypes.
The range of thickness for the metals is from 0.006 to 0.25 inches.
This manufacturing operation includes cutting, bending, welding and punching.
Various metals can be used. Virtually all materials used in metal sheets can be fabricated into different variations.
Sheet Metal Fabrication allows different finishing options, such as anodizing, bead blasting, plating, custom finishing, and powder coating.
A wide range of gauges is possible to be worked upon.
Whether end-use parts or prototypes, sheet metal fabrication helps produce durable parts that last the test of time.
This is an ideal process for manufacturers that want to produce sheet metal parts in large volumes because the cost of production is low due to the low-cost setup.
The sheet metal fabrication processes are straightforward; hence parts are delivered within a short timeframe.
With Ares, you can get a quality quotation in just a few minutes. To get them, all you need to do is to upload your design requirements, finishing, and lead time.
All our parts are produced off machines recommended as the proven standard for sheet metal fabrication. It is impossible to get a substandard part as our skilled engineers thoroughly inspect all our products.
We have a fully functioning factory that can take any size of parts you require (minor to large ones), with whatever material or surface finishing your business requires appropriately. This can be for low volume or high volume production.
You will never be left in the dark. We have an all-day support system that will answer all your problems and inquiries and provide suggestions. All that will facilitate your business whenever you reach out.
One popular material for sheet metal fabrication is aluminum. This is due to the material's low resistance and highly adaptable qualities. The material also has a high thermal conduction rate and is cost-effective.
Copper is also suitable for this manufacturing operation because it is easy to manipulate and ductile. It also conducts electricity efficiently and heat excellently.
When manufacturers want to use sheet metal fabrication to produce parts with extreme precision and have complex designs, they use steel as the material. This is because steel has longevity, resistance to corrosion and heat, rigidity, and cost-effectiveness.
Stainless steel has become a significant material for application in Industries like automotive, construction, and aerospace. The material has a 10% chromium weight min. It is also low in carbon and versatile.
This finishing process has a smooth and matte finish. It is done to improve the quality and performance of the parts like hardness and wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and metal surface. It is done on precision instruments, aircraft parts, and automobile parts.
Bead blasting is done to give parts a smooth surface and matte texture. It is ideal for visual applications where other treatments will follow.
This coating is done electrostatically and cured under ultraviolet light or heat. It is applied as a dry, free-flowing powder. It has a gloss or semi-gloss texture.
Electroplating is carried out to increase functionality, corrosion resistance, or decoration. It is applicable mainly in the automotive industry, among many others. It has a smooth or glossy finish.
This process involves physical rubbing or chemical operation on the physical body of parts to create a shiny and smooth. The effect is a reflective part.
The brushing process involves creating traces on the material's surface with belts, regularly where aesthetic demands are in place. It has a satin texture. The materials used are stainless steel, ABS, brass, and steel.
