Sheet Metal Fabrication
Select Mechanical Services (SMS) specializes in custom sheet metal fabrication. 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 used in various applications. Of course, we use them in our HVAC and refrigeration services. We also outsource products to many other companies. Our fabricated metal parts have the strength, durability, and cost-effectiveness that make 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. We can create complex designs by forming and joining the metal and employing specialized equipment.
Finally, the sheet metal completes all the necessary fabrication requirements. We use finishing techniques such as sandblasting, 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 ductwork.
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!
