The completion of a product usually comprises of many steps – from cutting and bending to surface treatment and assembling. Often times a variety of fabrication techniques can be used to achieve a similar end-result. But a right choice still exists, depending on the costs and needs. Types of Sheet Metal Fabrication Mechanical Cutting Shearing, or die cutting, refers to a process that cuts sheet metal without burning or melting it. Also, it does not produce any chips. In essence, shearing is not too different from cutting with scissors. Punching Punching is another way for cutting holes into a sheet. A metal punch hits the sheet, perforating it. It is suitable for large-scale production but not cost-effective for smaller jobs. The reason lies with the need for a separate tool for different cuts. Assembly Assembling is the ultimate or penultimate step when you want to fabricate a product. If assembling includes welding, the parts have to be clean – you can then have it powder coated, or whatever you need.
