What is Sheet Metal Fabrication?

At its core, sheet metal fabrication is the process of building metal parts and products from raw metal sheets – such as stainless steel, aluminium and yellow metals (excluding gold). We use a range of techniques to create the perfect product for each and every one of our clients, and are committed to building strong relationships with the businesses we work with.

Sheet metal fabrication is the forming of metal components using a variety of procedures. The most common method is to combine separate metal components to form a larger end product. Processes such as welding, CAD design, laser cutting, powder coating, press braking and metal folding and more are utilised to mechanically join the components and produce a high-quality finish, resulting in a variety of products of various forms and sizes.

At Salamander, we are a highly specialised team of experts, and as a result, have an extensive specialist skill-set in our arsenal. This allows us to offer guidance and ensure that only the highest quality products are delivered to our customers.

What Can Sheet Metal Fabrication Be Used For?

Sheet metal fabrication is a process with literally thousands, if not millions of potential applications.

Every project we work on at Salamander Fabrications is unique and has its own specifications, designs and requirements, which means that not only can we create the right product every time, but that we can also quickly and easily adapt our models to create entirely new and bespoke designs for our customers.

Sheet metal fabricators are often required to help create parts, displays, kiosks and more in a variety of industries.
