The Basics of Bending Sheet Metal
An overview of sheet metal bends.
Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication
Sheet metal produces durable, end-use metal parts that are fabricated to your specifications.
Our custom sheet metal services offer a cost-effective and on-demand solution for your manufacturing needs. Fabrication services range from standard gauge metal we can bend, punch and cut your design for low-volume prototypes, to high-volume production runs.
We offer instant sheet metal prices, directly from 3D CAD models.
Sheet metal offers a cost-effective way to fabricate product device panels, boxes and cases for a variety of applications. We build enclosures of all styles, including rackmounts, “U” and “L” shapes, as well as consoles and consolets.
The chassis we fabricate are typically used to house electromechanical controls, from small handheld devices to large industrial testing equipment. All chassis are built to critical dimensions to ensure whole pattern alignment between different parts.
Xometry builds custom brackets and miscellaneous sheet metal components, well-suited for either lightweight applications or when a high degree of corrosion-resistance is needed. All hardware and fasteners that is needed can be fully built in.
Similar to CNC machining, sheet metal processes produce highly durable parts well-suited for both functional prototypes and end-use production.
All sheet metal parts are built on-demand and with no set-up costs. Depending on your needs, order as little as a single prototype up to 10,000 production parts.
Combining the latest cutting, bending and punching with automated technologies, Xometry provides instant sheet quotes and completed parts within 12 business days.
Choose from a variety of sheet metals across a wide range of strength, conductivity, weight, and corrosion-resistance.
Select from a variety of finishes, including anodizing, plating, powder coating, and painting.
Minimal post-processing or treatment on parts is done.
The part surface is left with a smooth, matte appearance.
Anodizing, Plating, Powder Coating and other custom finishes are available upon request.
Sheet metal fabrication is a process by which parts are cut and bent from a roll of stock metal material. It can be a vert cost-effective way to make straightforward metal parts. Check out our design for tips on how to optimize your files for sheet metal!
