What is Sheet Metal Fabrication?

Sheet metal fabrication (also referred to as aluminium fabrication and metal fabrication among other names) is the process of cutting, rolling, folding, and punching flat sheets of steel or aluminium metal into solid metal structures or products like builders beams and more. Press brakes are used in sheet metal fabrication projects to help create sharp bends and angles in the metal, which makes the process easier.

Metal Fabrication Services Offered Throughout Derby

While we are based in Alfreton, Derbyshire, we have worked on a wide range of projects throughout Derby and the surrounding areas as well as throughout the rest of the UK.

  • Sheet Metal RollingSheet metal rolling is the process of rolling metal sheets into the desired size and shape by passing them through a sequence of precisely calibrated rollers. This is excellent for creating sheet metal cylinders, curved surfaces, or more. We provide an unrivalled sheet metal rolling service, with rolled metal sheets ranging in width from a few millimetres to 1700mm.
  • Sheet Metal FoldingSheet metal folding is the procedure of accurately folding flat sheet metal to create solid metal structures and products using a machine, enabling tiny intricate folds and a wide variety of possible shapes. We provide superior sheet metal folding services with unmatched precision and speed, resulting in remarkably short lead times.
  • CNC PunchingCNC punching is the process of taking flat metal sheets and allowing a CNC punching machine to effortlessly move the sheet across an X and Y-axis in order to successfully position the sheet under the machine punching ram in order to cut shapes out of metal sheets. For unrivalled speed, precision, and efficiency, our facilities offer industry-leading CNC punching services.
  • Laser Cutting & ProfilingLaser cutting and profiling is the technique of measuring and cutting flat metal sheets with a laser for remarkable accuracy in industrial operating conditions to ensure surface and geometry quality levels with very tight tolerances. Our industry-leading laser cutting and profiling machines can cut large sheets of flat metal with amazing accuracy, speed, and consistency, and can manage batch sizes ranging from a few single parts to thousands.
  • CAD/CAM Design – CAD/CAM design is the process of designing and engineering sheet metal into products and structures using a computer to draw out designs with extreme accuracy. We can use CAD/CAM design software to efficiently take customers’ sheet metal drawings from concept to completion.
