Sheet Metal Fabrication

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 Mini-Guide

Sheet metal fabrication is a process by which metal parts are cut and bent from a roll of stock material that is typically less than 0.25” thick.

Applications

Enclosures

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.

Chassis

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.

Brackets

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.

Advantages

Durability

Similar to CNC machining, sheet metal processes produce highly durable parts well-suited for both functional prototypes and end-use production.

Scalability

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.

Rapid Turnaround

Combining the latest cutting, bending and punching with automated technologies, Xometry provides instant sheet quotes and completed parts within 12 business days.

Material Selection

Choose from a variety of sheet metals across a wide range of strength, conductivity, weight, and corrosion-resistance.
