Sheet Metal Fabrication

Whether you need a single specialty item, a piece of equipment made right away, or a large-scale production run completed in a matter of weeks, you will need efficient and affordable sheet metal fabrication

Swanton Welding uses the latest equipment and technology, enabling them to take your plans and produce the sheet metal fabrication product to your requirements you need in a timely manner, on a budget, and with no waste. We have vast knowledge and experience bending, forming, and working with sheet metal fabrication. We approach our fabrication projects with focused attention on details and superior customer service.

Reducing Your Sheet Metal Fabrication Timelines

Sheet metal fabrication is just one part of the diverse metal fabrication services we offer at Swanton Welding.  We realized that when an order for a sheet metal project came in, there were other services that customers need to assemble and create their project.

By keeping your sheet metal fabrication project with one fabricator, you can reduce and minimize any shipping delays or errors between subcontractors.

Both our headquarters in Swanton, Ohio, and our Southern Facility in Griffin, GA have trained and experienced operators in handling our sheet metal fabrication projects.

Sheet Metal Fabrication Projects

Sheet metal can be bent, punched, cut, rolled, and stamped within Swanton Welding’s three facilities. Some projects that may use sheet metal might include:

High Production Volume For Sheet Metal Fabrication

There are times when you will require a very large production volume to fulfill your work order and maximize your profitability. Swanton Welding is capable of producing thousands of units with reasonably short lead times and uses the latest technology. 

At Swanton, our fabricators can take your plans, help you to choose the correct metal types, and determine the best method by which they can get your job done right, on time, and within your budget.

Multiple Welding Formats

Different types of metal require different types of welds. Whether you are working with basic sheet metal, more delicate aluminum or other metals and alloys, sheet metal fabrication requires using the correct type of welding to ensure structural integrity. 

  • MIG
  • TIG
  • Oxy-Acetylene
  • light-gauge arc welding

Other welding formats are available to compliment the specific types of metals and thicknesses that you will require to produce the equipment you need.

Laser, Plasma, and Water Jet Cutting

The delicate nature of sheet metal makes it highly susceptible to warping and other damage during production runs. To reduce loss and maximize efficiency, Swanton Welding uses our precision laser, plasma, or water jet cutting tools to cut directly where needed without overheating or damaging the metal being used.

You will get the greatest potential production from your sheet metal while having the least amount of waste. You will also benefit from having cuts made precisely where you need them, which virtually eliminates any variation in cuts and ensures that pieces will fit as designed.

Rolling, Forming, and Bending

Your fabrication likely involves surfaces that need to be more than just flat or angular. That is where Swanton Welding’s rolling and forming fabricators come into play. When you have curves, bends, and other shapes to be made, sheet metal fabrication requires the right equipment, tools, and experienced operators to ensure the job is done right.

One wrong bend or improperly-shaped curve could result in an incorrect fit. Swanton Welding sheet metal fabricators will ensure your items are formed properly and fit correctly.

CNC Machining and Punching

To ensure your highly specialized parts are made properly, some sheet metal fabrication requires CNC machining and punching for precise fitment. The computer-aided production method forms your metal exactly as you need it, no matter how thick the metal or intricate the pattern.

You also will have your screw, rivet, and other holes made exactly where you need them and in the proper quantities so that neither you or any of your clients have any trouble when installing your new pieces.
