Common Sheet Metal Fabrication Techniques

Classification of Sheet Metal Fabrication Techniques Sheet metal fabrication techniques can largely be put into two classifications – forming and cutting. Framing procedures are those in which the connected power makes the material plastically deform, yet not to fail. Such procedures can curve or stretch the sheet into the ideal shape. Cutting procedures are those in
