What Is the Sheet Metal Fabrication?

Sheet metal fabrication is a subtractive manufacturing process that involves forming thin sheet metal into parts by cutting, bending, folding, stamping, and assembling. Sheet metal can be cut, bent, or stretched into almost any shape, usually by cutting and burning the metal. Sheet metal parts are often exact and durable, which makes them particularly popular with engineers for end-use applications such as housings, brackets, and chassis.

If you have a legitimate need for custom sheet metal fabrication or outsourcing sheet metal fabrication to a reliable supplier in China, NOBLE may be your first choice. You can contact our team of knowledgeable engineers and mechanics for a quick and cost-effective solution for any part.

How Does Sheet Metal Fabrication Work?

The sheet metal fabrication processes start with removing materials from thin sheet metal stock placed on a flatbed following programmed part patterns to form desired shapes by cutting tools. This operation can be finished with a variety of subtractive machining processes. A sheet metal punch, shear, laser, waterjet, or plasma can generate additional features such as internal holes and edge features according to the part geometry. The second stage is material deformation. After being cut, the parts reach the press brake, forming into the final geometries with the forming process such as bending. The last stage is to assemble pieces of sheet metal or fit them together with other components not made from sheet metal into a complete product. In many cases, surface finishing operations are needed to enhance mechanical properties.

Sheet Metal Fabrication Materials

Whatever the application and requirements of your sheet metal fabrication part, trust NOBLE to find the right sheet metal fabrication material. Some popular materials available for custom metal fabrication are outlined below.


Commercially, aluminum is the most sought-after material for sheet metal manufacturing. Its popularity is due to its adaptive qualities and its high thermal conductivity and low resistance rates. Compared to steel—another common sheet metal material—aluminum is more cost-effective and has a higher rate of production. The material also generates the least amount of waste and can easily be reused.

Sheet Metal Fabrication FAQs

  • Q

    What is the sheet metal fabrication?


    Sheet metal manufacturing tolerances are the acceptable deviations of sheet metal part features required for accurate and consistent fit and integration.

    ISO 2768-mk is typically used on sheet metal parts to ensure proper control of geometric and dimensional elements. Below you will find 7 standard tolerance ranges for linear and angular dimensions, flatness and straightness, and cylindricity and roundness.

  • Q

    Which processes should I choose to fabricate my sheet metal?


    The selection of the cutting machine is determined by the gauge of the sheet and the material used, along with other key elements like delivery, tolerances, and geometric complexity as expected. You don’t have to figure out the type of cutting machine suiting your sheet metal as our experts clearly know what kind of equipment, technology, and even materials are best suitable for your project. Thus, just submit your 3D files online and get a professional solution from our experts in fabricating sheet metal quickly.

  • Q

    When should I choose 5-axis CNC machining?


    The flexibility of 5-axis CNC machining allows the creation of complex components with complex shapes and geometrical details. The stability of the machining tool also gives more consistent and smoother surface finishes. Therefore, you should choose 5-axis machining whenever you need to produce complex parts with tight tolerances.

  • Q

    Is it more expensive when using multiple sheet metal fabrication processes?


    Generally, the cost of using just a single cutting machine such as a laser cutter to cut a part will spend less than that of multiple forming processes, for instance, cutting, bending, and punching. But most sheet metal parts need to be machined with a combination of different forming processes, and the per-unit costs will reduce by large-volume quantities.

  • Q

    What are the tolerances for fabricated parts?


    The tolerances of sheet metal fabrication are decided by the features and dimensional details of sheet metal parts necessary for consistent and precise integration and installation.

    To ensure the accurate control of the variables affecting the part precision and manufacturability, our custom sheet metal fabrication services are in accordance with the ISO 2768-mk.

  • Q

    How much does sheet metal fabrication cost?


    The costs of sheet metal fabricated parts or products depend in every respect including the design, geometric complexity, forming processes, surface finishing operations, and more. Besides these crucial factors, the material costs should be also considered.

    Our quote online will include all of these factors and even variables in line with the manufacturability of sheet parts, so request a quote to get started with your project right now.

  • Q

    Does it cost more to use multiple sheet metal fabrication processes?


    In general, a part that is cut, bent and punched will cost more than a part that is, for example, just cut using a laser cutter.

    However, most sheet metal parts demand a combination of forming processes, and this will not increase the price by a drastic amount.

  • Q

    Do I need laser cutting, water jet cutting or plasma cutting?


    The type of cutting machine used depends on the chosen material and the gauge of the sheet, as well as factors like desired lead time and tolerances.

    We know which projects need which equipment, so you don’t need to specify a particular cutting machine.
