Sheetmetal Fabrication

Sheetmetal Fabrication

El-Com Systems provides sheetmetal fabrication services to deliver custom and standard enclosures and assemblies for our customers. Utilizing high-tech equipment, we deliver precision sheetmetal fabrication from bending sheetmetal to forming sheetmetal that meets or exceeds customer expectations. Our domestic and offshore manufacturing resources enable us to provide first-class sheetmetal fabrication services at substantially lower prices than our competitors.

Sheetmetal Basics

Sheetmetal, as the name implies, is metal in the form of thin, flat sheets. With the right equipment and know-how, it can be easily formed, bent, and/or cut into the desired shape. A wide range of everyday items, from automobiles to appliances to medical devices, include fabricated sheetmetal parts and components.

A wide range of metals can be found in sheetmetal form, including titanium, aluminum, brass, stainless steel, carbon steel, copper, tin, nickel, and even silver, gold, and platinum. Material thickness is measured by gauge—the lower the number, the thicker the material. Most sheetmetal is between 8 and 30 gauge. Extremely thin sheetmetal is categorized as foil; thicker pieces are considered plate.
