Sheet Metal Assembly

Our sheet metal assembly team is more than capable.

What Is Sheet Metal Assembly?

Often our parts are shipped to the customer to be assembled into the final product. However, if a customer desires a more complete product when it arrives on their floor, we have the capability to perform electro-mechanical assembly at any level- from basic to complex. Our sheet metal assembly process typically involves welding and binding the parts with adhesives, rivets, or threaded fasteners.

This range of sheet metal assembly methods and our additional fabrication capabilities allows us to customize each project for the exact specifications that are called for. Finally, we can even perform product testing to ensure that the final assembly is working properly before it leaves our facility. As such, our capabilities can be utilized across various industries, making us the one-stop-shop for metal fabrication, assembly, and finishing.

Sheet Metal Assembly Techniques

When it comes to sheet metal assembly, there is no “one-size-fits-all” solution. Instead, there are different types of methods welders can choose from in order to create the highest quality product. Deploying different techniques allows welders flexibility and options. Since there isn’t one single method for sheet metal assemblies, it’s important welders focus on a technique that considers the functionality, strength, and longevity of the product, as a poorly assembled product won’t last long. Below are various sheet metal assembly techniques and the specific parts they tend to be most commonly used with.

Electro-Mechanical Assembly

The electric-mechanical assembly utilizes both electrical and mechanical procedures. This sheet metal assembly method involves constructing pieces of equipment that control electrical currents. This can include a range of products like a part that operates in a power-enhanced way or a device like a thermostat or a pacemaker.

Basic Assembly Operation

Our basic sheet metal assembly services utilize welding and binding methods to combine multiple parts together into a finished product. This is the go-to method for projects that require a strong structure that is long-lasting. This is one of the most frequently used sheet metal assembly techniques and is not the preferred method if the item needs to be disassembled in the future.

Large Welded Frames

This type of large-scale sheet metal assembly uses welding to join a number of metal parts together into a frame that can be used in a variety of ways. The welder must inspect the frames for any bends or cracks and ensure it’s extremely durable. This method is most commonly used with MIG (metal inert gas) or TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding.

Complex Bend and Weld

Some projects require more advanced methods of assembly and fabrication — our experienced team knows how to employ these complex strategies effectively. There are several sheet metal assembly methods that allow welders to bend metal. One example for instance is hot bending, which allows the welder to heat up a metal until it’s pliable enough to manipulate. High-frequency electricity can also be deployed to achieve bending. The metal undergoes a certain amount of stress in order to get it to bend, but it does not undergo nearly enough stress to cause it to break.

Detailed Weld

Our expert welders can tackle even the smallest and most detailed tasks with precision. One way we can accomplish this is with a brazing and soldering technique, which joins two types of metal together. This method deploys a filler metal that when heated to its melting point, can be used to fuse two metals together. This method is ideal for joining together different types of metal and can be used for everything from electronic parts to jewelry.

Customized Welded & Assembled Cabinets

We can create professional-grade cabinets that are ready for use upon delivery. Cabinets typically require spot welding techniques, which weld together two pieces of sheet metal through the passing of electrodes. This type of welding is not the most permanent but requires less ongoing maintenance when compared to mechanical welding. This sheet metal assembly technique can be used on projects like cabinets, brackets, and orthodontic materials.
