Why use Custom Sheet Metal?
Here at Custom Sheet Metal we believe in customer satisfaction, attention to detail and a quick turn around.
Metal Fabrication Services
Metal fabrication is the creation of metal parts, machinery, or components through forming, cutting, and other like processes. Common fabrication techniques include welding, lathing, broaching, grinding, milling and honing, though many metal fabrication shops offer a variety of specialties that may be well-suited to your specific needs. Metal fabrication ranges from industries such as automotive, electrical, medical, food and beverages, residential, and commercial.
Stainless Steel Fabrication Services
Stainless steel is used for buildings for both practical and aesthetic reasons. Stainless steel was in vogue during the art deco period. The most famous example of this is the upper portion of the Chrysler Building (pictured). Some diners and fast-food restaurants use large ornamental panels and stainless fixtures and furniture. Because of the durability of the material, many of these buildings still retain their original appearance. Stainless steel is used today in building construction because of its durability and because it is a weldable building metal that can be made into aesthetically pleasing shapes. An example of a building in which these properties are exploited is the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton, which is wrapped in stainless steel.
Fine Welding Services
Laser welding is a high energy density beam process, where energy is targeted directly on the work piece. The laser power supply is capable of delivering a “pulse” of light that has accurate and repeatable energy and duration. When the “pulse” of laser energy is focused into a small spot, the energy density becomes large.The light is absorbed by the metal (workpiece) that contracts the focus of the beam (like a key-hold effect), which drills into the metal to vaporize and melt some of it. The process takes only milliseconds, but as the pulse ends, the liquefied metal flows back in and solidifies, creating a “weld spot”.
TIG welding is an arc welding process in which fusion is produced between a tungsten electrode and the work piece by heating an electric arc while an inert gas forms around the weld area to prevent oxidation. No flux is used.
Plasma is a gas that, when heated to an extremely high temperature, becomes ionized, making it electrically conductive. The plasma welding process uses a charged plasma to transfer an electric arc to the workpiece. The intense heat of the arc melts the two metals to be joined, fusing them together.
The torch used in plasma welding houses a Tungsten electrode inside a copper nozzle and has a small opening at the tip. When a pilot arc is created between the electrode and the nozzle tip, the plasma gas and resultant arc are forced through the narrow opening, which delivers a highly intense heat to a very small area, producing exceptionally high quality welds.
Types of Processes We Use
- Stamping: The metal is pressed in between a stamp die to create a raised section of the metal.
- Punching: A punching tool is used to punch holes in the metal to create the desired part or component.
- Cutting: Various cutting methods are used to cut the metal to the right size.
- Folding: Sometimes the metal needs to be bent at a specific angle, and folding is used to achieve this result.
- Machining: Machining processes carefully remove metal and reshape it into the end product and involve using drills, CNC lathes, and other such machinery.
- Welding: This process involves heating two pieces of metal together.
- Shearing: Shearing is creating one long single cut on metal sheets to cut it to the correct size.
