Understanding Stainless Steel Sheet Metal Fabrication Services

15 May 2020

Together with aluminium, stainless steel remains one of the most popular metals in use by fabricators today. Stainless steel is a malleable metal. This, together with its prized corrosion resistance and low maintenance, makes it desirable for use in certain applications -functional, architectural and even artistic projects. The versatility of stainless steel truly is one of a kind. Its special physical properties also mean that there are very specific best practices when it comes to forming and fabricating this metal.

Stainless Steel Sheet Metal Fabrication Services Basics

Sheet metal can be cut, stamped, formed, punched, sheared, bent, welded, rolled, riveted, drilled, tapped, machined.  Hardware can then be inserted to fix electronic components, metal brackets or other pieces of sheet metal.  To finish sheet metal, it can be brushed, plated, anodized, powder-coated, liquid painted, silkscreen, laser-etched, and pad printed.  And of course, parts can be welded riveted into complex assemblies.

Just like any other technology, the processing of precision sheet metal is constantly evolving.  Materials, processes, tooling, and equipment are becoming highly specialized which is improving the time involved to make common sheet metal parts and speeding up the design process as well.  To fully leverage all the technological advantages, it is important that you select the right supplier and know the differentiation between metal fabricators; architectural sheet metal (HVAC and ductwork), heavy plate fabricators (staircases, fences, heavy structures) precision fabricators (thin gauge sheet metal, enclosures, brackets etc.

If you are considering aluminium and/or stainless steel sheet metal fabrication, be sure to talk to a knowledgeable and experienced fabricator. Stone City Products can provide you with exactly what you need to make your projects a success.
