Types of Sheet Metals Available

Sheet metal fabricated parts can be used for a range of parts from prototypes to engineering models to end-use components. Sheet metals vary in their ductility and strength, which makes some better for forming and others better for welding and cutting. Some alloys like stainless steel sheet metals are well-rounded materials, with excellent formability, ductility, and weldability.

Sheet metals boast a range of useful properties, from lightweight and corrosion-resistant aluminum 5052 to conductive copper C110. Sheet metal parts are ideal for enclosures, structural components, chemical and food processing equipment, and more. Generally, sheet metal parts are less or as expensive as CNC machined parts, depending on the size and number of bending and assembly operations required. Explore our materials in depth below:
