Sheet Metal Fabrication
Select Mechanical Services (SMS) specializes in custom sheet metal fabrication services. Equipped with a state-of-the-art fabrication shop, our knowledgeable and experienced fabricators have the skill and tools to provide a broad selection of manufacturing solutions.
Our sheet metal fabrication operations can create components that are used in a wide range of applications. Of course, we use them in our HVAC and refrigeration services, but we also outsource products to a number of other companies. Our fabricated metal parts have the strength, durability, and cost-effectiveness that makes them highly suitable for virtually every industry.
What Is Sheet Metal Fabrication?
Sheet metal fabrication commonly refers to bending, cutting, forming, rolling, and welding sheet metal into parts and products. By forming and joining the metal and employing specialized equipment, we can create quite complex designs.
Once the sheet metal has gone through all the necessary fabrication requirements, we use finishing techniques such as sanding blasting, priming, and painting to improve the functional and aesthetic qualities of the part or product.
Our Fabrication Capabilities
SMS has a fully functioning, highly specialized fabrication shop where we can perform the most complex sheet metal work. Our most common types of fabrication techniques are:
- Sheet Metal Forming: An effective method for producing sheet metal parts in complex three-dimensional shapes using minimal material.
- Sheet Metal Rolling: This process passes the metal through three rollers to shorten one face of the material and elongate the opposite face causing a progressive curvature in the sheet.
- Sheet Metal Shearing: This process employs a set of upper and lower straight-edge blades to cut flat metal stock—such as aluminum, brass, bronze, and stainless steel—into separate pieces. This is the most commonly used process for duct work.
At SMS, we have extensive experience providing complete manufacturing solutions, including sheet metal fabrication, machining, assembly, and finishing. To learn more about our capabilities or partner with us on your next project, contact us at 903-567-8100 today!
