We have high speed, state of the art sheet metal fabrication equipment that is best suited for repetitive, low-to-high volume and high-mix production runs. As a complete tool and die shop, we are skilled in all areas of fabrication including fiber laser, CNC punching, CNC bending, CNC forming, welding, CNC machining, hardware insertion and assembly. Many of our processes are automated, such as the material handling on our two 5000-watt fiber lasers, allowing us to run minimally attended or even lights out. We can handle any portion of your project from laser cutting flat blanks to providing you with a full assembly ready to ship to your customer. Our on-time delivery average is 98%.

CNC Punching: 20-ton capacity. Max. sheet size 48" x 96". Material thickness range .006" to .25"
CNC Brakes: Up to 300-ton capacity and 14 feet of bending
Hardware Insertion equipment
MIG, TIG & Spot Welding
Managing painting, plating or other subcontracted services
We accept raw material in sheets, plates, bars or tubes and are experienced in working with a variety of materials like aluminum, copper, stainless steel and carbon steels. Other services include hardware insertion, welding, grinding, machining, turning and assembly. As your volumes increase we also have the option of hard tooling your parts to run in our metal stamping department. Inspection options range from simple feature checks all the way through FAIR & PPAP.
Frequently Asked Questions about Sheet Metal Fabrication
Although our lasers can process thicker material, our optimal thickness in steel & stainless steel is 0.060”.
We also can process aluminum up to ¾” and copper up to 3/16” thick. We have cut up to 1” Steel but prefer the cut off to be 3/8”
We have agreements in place where we process and ship orders within 3 days, while others might take 2-4 weeks. It depends on the materials needed and if there is any painting or plating involved. With some good planning, we can work out a delivery schedule that meets your needs.
We can do low volume prototyping, usually as pre-production runs. However, repetitive volume is what fits our equipment best since everything is CNC controlled and we have material handling automation. While this takes slightly longer to set up, we make up for it with speed and repetitive accuracy.
