Sheet metal is a flexible and very thin metal product. Its use is limited only by our imagination. Sheet metal is found on agricultural equipment such as belly dumps and loading bodies. It is used extensively in the manufacturing sector for items such a belt and chain guards, protective covers and conveyer parts. Fabrication of sheet metal products is achieved in a number of ways including laser cutting, press brake forming, punching, welding and shearing.
The deciding factor on which technique to use is the application for which the sheet metal is to be employed. Often a project will consist of laser cutting a piece which will then be press brake formed and then welded.
As limitless as the uses of fabrication sheet metal are there are also innumerable methods of fabrication required to support those various uses. Whatever the method used to create the finished piece it will have to stand up to rigorous durability and accuracy quality checks before being sent on to the installation team.
