What is Sheet Metal Fabrication?
Sheet metal fabrication is a manufacturing process that uses cutting and bending parts from thin metal sheets. Mechanical Engineers often choose sheet metal parts for their durability and ease of manufacturing. JawsTec’s fabrication and production services offer quick online quotes with a range of sheet metal materials, including aluminum, copper, steel, and stainless steel. With JawsTec’s high accuracy of sheet metal fabrication, and materials range with partners we should be able to do most sheet metal jobs in our Machine Shop. Sheet metal applications include aerospace, defense, automotive, energy, industrial, medical, dental, and consumer products.
