Sheet Metal Fabrication Techniques

The following list of sheet metal methods is useful for both experts and beginners, whether you’ve worked in a sheet metal fabrication Malaysia industry for decades or are just learning the ropes.

From start to finish, this article explains standard sheet metal manufacturing processes.

Assembling: Welding, adhesive binding, and bending in the form of a crimped seam are all used in this procedure.

Bending: This process uses hammering or press brakes.

Blanking: A method of cutting a component out of sheet metal and discarding the material that surrounds it.

Cutting: Sawing, shearing, or slicing using manual and power tools, or torching with portable plasma torches utilising CNC cutters like lasers

Die cutting: A method of cutting metal objects without the creation of chips or the use of burning or melting.

Fastening: In situations where the sheet metal is too thin to be fastened by conventional ways, this method is used by self-clinching tools such as nuts, studs, spacers, access hardware, or cable tie mounts and hooks to provide torque resistance.

Finishing: A method of altering the surface of a finished metal project to obtain a desired attribute, such as better appearance, adhesion or wettability, solderability, corrosion, tarnish chemical, or wear resistance, hardness, electrical conductivity, surface friction control, and blemish removal.

Galvanizing: The application of a protective zinc coating on steel or iron to keep it from rusting.

Glazing: A technique in which two metals glide against one other to form a shining, wear-resistant oxide coating.

Hydroforming: A forming and manufacturing technique that employs a specific sort of die moulding to shape metals such as steel, stainless steel, copper, aluminium, and brass using a highly pressured fluid.

Metal punching: A procedure in which sheet metal is punched with holes, louvres, or a predefined shape using metal fabrication equipment.

Milling: A method of removing material from a metal item by advancing rotary cutters in a direction that is at an angle to the tool’s axis.

Oxy acetylene welding: A method in which an adjustable torch and a tank of oxygen and acetylene are combined to produce a precise, controlled flame that is used to heat metal.

Roll forming: A constant bending process in which sheet metal, coil, bar, or strips of metal pass through rolls that form the metal

Shrinking: A process to remove small dents in which the direct damage isn’t severely stretched or torn and the hardness of the buckles isn’t severe
