What is sheet metal fabrication?
Sheet metal fabrication is a fabrication method that involves cutting and bending sheet metal to form different shapes.
Sheet metal fabrication is more economical than CNC machining when it comes to metal components with uniform wall thickness.

Post-processing or minimal treatment of parts is done.
Anodizing (Type II or Type III)
Type II (MIL-A-8625, type II) creates a corrosion resistant finish. The pieces can be anodized in different colors - clear, black, red and gold are the most common - and are usually associated with aluminum. Type III (MIL-A-8625, type III, class 1/2 "hardcoat") is thicker and creates a wear-resistant layer, in addition to the corrosion resistance seen with type II.
This is a process in which powder paint is sprayed onto a piece which is then baked in the oven. This creates a strong, wear and corrosion resistant layer that is more durable than standard paint methods. A wide variety of colors are available to create the desired aesthetic.
Nickel plating without electrodes
Provides uniform nickel coating that offers protection against corrosion, oxidation and wear on uneven surfaces. The finished part will be brighter. The thickness starts at 0.0001 ”. Complies with MIL-C-26074.
