Sheet Metal Fabrication
Sheet Metal Fabrication
RpProto offers fast and cost-effective sheet metal prototyping services for your prototyping and low volume production projects. Services include bending, punching, cutting standard gauge metal etc.
Sheet metal fabrication create durable, end-use prototypes or parts with a variaty of materials. Common materials include Aluminum, Stainlesss steel , Brass, Copper, Bronze, Titanium etc.
Sheet metal products is widely used in industries like Automotive, Medical device, Aerospace, electronics, energy etc.
Please feel free to get in touch with us to discuss your project.
Sheet metal fabrication uses a wide range of materials with properties of strength, hardness, flexibility, and corrosion resistance. Below are the most commonly used materials.

|As Machined||Sharp edge and burrs will be removed|
|Sand Blast||The part surface is left with a smooth, matte appearance|
|Brushing||It cleans and scores the metal surface and can be used as a final finish on materials such as aluminium and stainless steel|
|Anodized||Type II creates a corrosion-resistant finish. Parts can be anodized in different colors-clear,
black, red, and gold are most common-and is usually associated with aluminum.
Type III is thicker and creates a wear-resistant layer in addition to the corrosion resistance
seen with Type II.
Electrostatically applies a dry powder—typically a thermoplastic or thermoset polymer—to the metal surface.
Make the surface more durable than conventional paint without paint’s aesthetic qualities.
It can be done electrolytically or electroless to improve solderability, prevent corrosion, harden a surface, reduce friction, prevent wear, and aid in paint adhesion. Plating processes include:
– Passivation, a cleaning process that prevents corrosion in stainless steels by removing free irons from the surface of the material.
– Chromate coating, a corrosion-resistant conductive coating applied on aluminum .
– Zinc, often combined with a Chromate coating over the zinc, is a anti-corrosion self-sacrificing coating (galvanizing or galvanealing) for steels.
– Nickel, often a cosmetic coating and can serve as a substrate for plating processes that cannot adhere to a given metal.
– Tin, a solderable, conductive coating.

Sheet metal fabrication is an important component of the many technical improvements we’ve seen in industries due to the characteristics of sheet metal parts.
aerospace, automotive, electronics products, heating and cooling, medical devices, telecommunications, computer are only a few examples.
In fact, sheet metal fabrication is used in practically every industry.
Advantages of Sheet Metal Fabrication
lead times on sheet metal fabrication are usually short
sheet metal fabrication can handle both low and high-volume production
sheet metal is relatively inexpensive
sheet metal is durable enough to withstand high pressure
sheet metal is renowned for its strength
Sheet metal fabrication is the techniques and process of turning flat sheets of steel or aluminium into metal structures or products.
Manufacturing process include cutting, stamping, bending, punching, shearing, forming, welding, revetting, drilling, and tapping etc.
Sheet metal fabrication is used in everything from massive structural projects and construction equipment to complex telecommunications and electronics.
Sheet metal fabrication can be utilised to create functional prototypes or end-use parts.
Is there a minimum order quantity?
No. You can order a one-off prototype or 1,000+ units.
