What is sheet metal?
Sheet metal is one of the shapes and forms that can be purchased. Sheet metal is any metal with a thickness between 0.5 and 6 mm.
Sheet Metal Fabrication
When you need sheet metal fabrication service—talk to Wintech Rapid. We offer professional sheet metal fabrication service, and we can help you to get your part at low cost and high quality!
Sheet metal fabrication services offer a fast and cost-effective and on-demand solution for your projects. It has the characteristics of lightweight, high strength, electrically conductive, low cost, and a good performance from the large scale mass production.
Sheet metal fabrication is the process of forming parts from a metal sheet. 3D CAD files are converted into machine code, which controls a machine to precisely cut and form the sheets into the final part. Typical forming tools are brakes, punches, and dies which can form angular bends and features. Installing inserts, such as PEM inserts, is standard practice along with welding and finishing services. Sheet metal parts are known for their durability, which makes them great for end-use applications (e.g. chassis). Parts used for low volume prototypes and high volume production runs are most cost-effective due to large initial setup and material costs.
Our custom sheet metal services offer a cost-effective and on-demand solution for your manufacturing needs. Fabrication services range from low-volume prototype to high-volume production runs with significant cost savings. We can now quote 2D mechanical drawings through our 2D technical drawing marketplace.
Advantages of Sheet Metal Fabrication
A variety of sheet metals across a wide range of strength, conductivity, weight, and corrosion resistance.
Usually, the thickness is 0.006 and 0.25 inches (0.15mm to 6.35mm).
- Low, Medium and High Carbon Steel
- Stainless Steel
- Brass and Copper
Select from a variety of finishes, including bead blasting, anodizing, plating, powder coating, painting and custom finishes.
Sheet metal fabrication produces durable parts for functional prototypes or end-use production.
All sheet metal parts are built on-demand and with lower setup costs for a single prototype up to 10,000 production parts.
Wintech Rapid provides instant sheet quotes and completed parts in a short time (5-10 days) which depend on the latest cutting, bending and punching with automated technologies.
