Aria’s Sheet Metal Fabrication Capabilities

Sheet metal fabrication is an umbrella term for many of the processing methods used to transform flat and thin sheets of metal into a quality end use part. Sheet metal refers to thin sheets of metal stock that are no more than 0.25 inches thick.

Laser cutting

Cutting Materials

Sheet metal cutting is a process used to cut thin, flat pieces of metal into specific shapes and sizes. 

what is sheet metal fabrication
Bending

Sheet metal bending is the process of using a machine to shape thin, flat sheets of metal into a desired form or shape.

Welding

It is the process of joining two or more pieces of sheet metal together using heat and pressure to create a permanent bond.

Surface Finish

The surface quality can affect the appearance, durability, and performance of the final product.

Sheet Metal Fabrication Cutting Process

Laser Cutting

Laser Cutting

Laser cutting speed, high quality, dimension accuracy of parts up to ±0.05mm. With smooth surface, surface roughness is only dozens of microns, no mechanical processing, parts can be used directly.

Plasma Cutting

Plasma Cutting

Plasma cutting machine does not need to preheat the workpiece, melting speed, cutting surface smooth, not easy to cause workpiece deformation; When cutting the workpiece with thickness less than 40mm, both quality and speed have obvious advantages.

Water cutting ​

Water Cutting

Water cutting can be arbitrarily carved workpiece, and is little affected by the texture of the material.  Because of its low cost, easy operation, and high yield, water cutting is gradually becoming the mainstream of industrial cutting technology.

Type of Sheet Metal Bending 

V Shape Bending

V-shaped

The upper part of the workpiece is compressed, and the lower part is adjacent to the walls of the mechanism and stretched

U Shape Bending

U-shaped

The program is almost identical to V-Shape, the difference is only in the number of processing steps;

Multi-angle Bending

Multi-angle

Allows you to form complex shapes, while to create a structure, you can use both one element and several;

L Shape Bending

Radius

Allows you to get a smooth bend, used to create loops, clamps, and so on.

Sheet Metal Fabrication Welding Process

The manufacturing method usually depends on the size of the part, the complexity of the design, and the type of finish. We offer the most popular metal fabrication operations covering cutting, forming and joining processes.

Gas Tungsten Arc Welding

Gas Tungsten Arc Welding

This process uses a tungsten electrode to create an arc that melts the metal and filler rod. It is a very precise welding method that produces high-quality welds with minimal distortion and spatter. TIG welding is commonly used for welding thin sheet metal.

Gas Metal Arc Welding

This process uses a wire electrode that is fed through a welding gun and into the weld pool. The wire melts and fuses the metal together. MIG welding is faster than TIG welding and can be used for thicker sheet metal.

Gas Metal Arc Welding
Resistance Spot Welding

Resistance Spot Welding

This process uses two copper electrodes to apply pressure and heat to the metal. The heat melts the metal at the point of contact, creating a weld. Spot welding is a fast and efficient process that can be used for high-volume production.

Resistance Seam Welding

This process is similar to spot welding but instead of welding at a single point, it creates a continuous weld along the seam of two sheets of metal. It is commonly used for joining sheet metal in automotive applications.

Resistance Seam Welding
Laser Welding

Laser Welding

This process uses a high-powered laser to melt the metal and create a weld. It is a very precise and fast welding method that is commonly used for welding sheet metal in the aerospace industry.

Wall thickness

Sheet Metal Fabrication Wall thickness

The wall thickness of a sheet metal fabrication part is an important design consideration that will depend on the application and the material being used.

For sheet metal fabrication, the thickness of the sheet metal typically ranges from 0.005 inches to 0.25 inches (0.13mm to 6.35mm).

Bending radius

Sheet Metal Fabrication Bending radius

When designing parts for sheet metal fabrication, it is important to consider the minimum bend radius for the material being used. If the bend radius is too small, the material may crack or deform, which can compromise the strength and durability of the part.

Hole size

Sheet Metal Fabrication Hole Size

The size of the hole you need to make depends on the specific application and the material being used. In general, the hole diameter should be no less than the thickness of the material to avoid distortion or cracking.

Hole spacing

Sheet Metal Fabrication Hole spacing

The spacing between holes is also important, as it can affect the overall strength and stability of the sheet metal. In general, the distance between holes should be at least two times the diameter of the hole.

Tolerance

Sheet metal Tolerance

When drilling holes in sheet metal, it’s important to maintain a tight tolerance to ensure the holes are uniform in size and spacing. A tolerance of +/- 0.005 inches is generally recommended for most applications. More Detail

Hole shape

Sheet Metal Fabrication Hole shape

The shape of the hole can also impact the strength and durability of the sheet metal. Round holes are the most common, but other shapes like square or rectangular holes can be used for specific applications.
