Sheet Metal Fabrication Boston

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 Boston business.

What is it used for?

Large sections of sheet metal may be used for:

  • Airplane wings
  • Metal roofs
  • Stairways
  • Pre-fabricated buildings
  • Automobile bodies
  • Construction equipment
  • Boats

Moderate sized pieces are made into:

  • Machine housings
  • Power tools
  • Safes and lockboxes
  • Medical tables
  • Railings

Smaller items can include:

  • Tack for horses
  • Decorative metalwork
  • Plate armor
  • Jewelry
  • Electrical transformers
  • Cookware
  • Machine parts

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.

Testimonials

Scott Valley and Frank Tran
American Science and Engineering Inc.
{Over the last two months, American Science and Engineering has had several programs that required very quick turnaround on many parts. Excell Solutions went above and beyond what we would normally expect from a supplier to ensure our new product development success. Many of these parts were delivered the same day, with most of the more complex parts delivered within a week. It is because your dedication and willingness to do the impossible that we are able to stay on schedule and meet the demanding timelines that we are tasked with. Everyone at American Science and Engineering appreciates your efforts.
{I want to say THANK YOU so very much that just doesn’t express the gratitude I want to convey to you and your team over the past few months. I know since coming on board with Dakota Systems things have been less than easy, shall I say. As you were working over the holiday weekend, my customers as well as myself were also working to get the tools fabricated for test. The work that your team has accomplished in an outstanding & amazing feat. My customer is extremely pleased with your work and more importantly grateful for the time and effort you have put in to launch these 2 systems.

{I just want to say thanks to you, Steve and the great crew at Excell Solutions for your help this past weekend. The turnaround from receiving the PO at 1:33 on Friday and having parts machined and plated in my office at 1:33 on Monday was remarkable. It is a great feeling to know that I can count on a first class organization to pull it all together and have a “does whatever it takes” attitude to help out a customer when all seems hopeless. That level of service is what makes companies like Excell Solutions world class and keeps customers coming back. Again, thanks to the Excell Crew for a job well done.
{I wanted to take a moment and thank you for your help during our startup phase. We have learned heavily on you and your team and you have not disappointed us even on the request that were, frankly, not planned. You have allowed us to be opportunistic and that is what counts when you are a small fish in a big pond. In two weeks we have our big showing and we could not have ready without your services. Please let your team know that we appreciate their efforts, and we look forward to a long prosperous relationship.
