Sheet Metal Fabrication

Metal Sheet Forming
Metal Sheet Forming

At Fab-Tech, Inc., we are accomplished in all aspects of precision sheet metal fabrication. We excel at crafting dimensionally accurate sheet metal parts and assemblies that have complex requirements. Our specialty is working with light gauge metals such as aluminum, copper, steels of all grades and temper, including stainless, and many other materials. Solutions-oriented, we are equipped to manage your parts production and have the production capacity to meet tight deadlines.

Our fabrication facility houses a comprehensive lineup of equipment, including laser cutters, punch presses, and press brakes with programmable back gauges. Our press brakes incorporate a variety of specialized tooling, allowing us to perform a large mix of forming operations while holding very close tolerances. Our shop is also outfitted with a next-generation vertical machining center as well as deburring and grinding machinery.

For assembly, we have automated hardware installation presses and numerous welding stations. Most sheet metal fabrications require a finishing touch, and with three paint/powder coating booths and a five-stage phosphate cleaning line we can conveniently complete your job right here in-house. We also provide part marking and labeling.  High quality electroplating, anodizing, and passivation processes are available in our local area.

Whether you need production of sheet metal parts and shapes or a supply of ready to assemble kits, we are equipped to accommodate your needs. Our craftspeople have an excellent mix of skills and a passion for quality. We are ISO 9001:2008 compliant and qualified to comply with Mil-spec and other industry standards. Contact us today to learn more about our precision sheet metal fabrication services or request a quote.
