State-of-the-Art Sheet Metal Fabrication Facilities
3D Systems On Demand Manufacturing supports projects from simple bent sheet metal prototypes of brackets, base plates, clips, clamps, covers and other formed metal parts, to production runs of complex, multi-part electro-mechanical assemblies.
We offer a variety of capabilities in sheet metal such as bending, shearing, staking and stamping. Common operations for sheet metal parts include drilling, tapping, counterboring and countersinking.
Our sheet metal parts are produced using laser cutting,water jet or chemical etching processes to form blanks from sheet metal stock. Blanks are then bent to shape using press brakes or quick custom tooling to form the final geometry.
3D Systems On Demand Manufacturing supports projects from simple bent sheet metal prototypes of brackets, base plates, clips, clamps, covers and other formed metal parts, to production runs of complex, multi-part electro-mechanical assemblies. Our state-of-the-art sheet metal fabrication facility includes vertically integrated metal forming, laser cutting/punching, CNC machining, welding and finishing cells to support both prototype and production runs of high-quality sheet metal enclosures and housings for dental, medical, electronics, lighting, consumer products, and other applications.
Sheet metal can be cut, bent, and stretched into nearly any shape. The size of sheet metal parts can range from a small washer or bracket to midsize enclosures for home appliances, to large airplane wings. These parts are found in a variety of industries, such as aircraft, automotive, construction, consumer products, HVAC, and furniture.
Quotes are generated with STEP, IGES or most native CAD files. Material thickness can range from 0.001" -0.250", and bent part sizes can go up to 36"x36"x6".
