Can Sheet Metal Fabrication Help You?
One of the services that Excell Solutions can provide is sheet metal fabrication. Most people think of sheet metal and imagine prefabricated buildings and large pieces of metal like awnings. While we can certainly provide those items, we can do a whole lot more.
What is it?
Sheet metal fabrication starts with thin flat pieces of metal. It may come in large sheets or be coiled up for easier handling. Some processes might be automated. Machines can be programmed to create multiple identical pieces to ensure conformity. For many processes, however, the material is worked by a technician using different types of equipment. This may range from large metal lathes, to water jets, to lasers and even hand tools.
Some of the more common materials include aluminum, brass, steel, tin, nickel, copper, and titanium. For special cases gold, silver, or platinum might be used. The best metal for you will depend on your budget and how you plan to use it. Our experts in the sheet metal fabrication and engineering departments can help you decide on your best choice for your Billerica business.

How do you work sheet metal?
There are a lot of different types of sheet metal fabrication. Our experts might manipulate the material in many different ways before it reaches its final form. Some common methods are bending, rolling, laser cutting, punching, stamping, and water jet cutting. Cutting is usually done by shearing. Large pieces of metal are cut into smaller ones to be further shaped by other methods, or may be cut into their final shape. Other cutting methods include lasers, water jets, and torches. Bending is usually done by hammering or with a press brake. Pieces might be bent, rolled, or shaped in other fashions.
Once the pieces are created, they might be shipped to the customer or assembled on site. Our experts can use techniques such as riveting, welding, threaded fasteners, and adhesives depending on your specifications.
