Sheet Metal Fabrication for Weymouth, MassachusettsSheet metal fabrication encompasses a variety of shaping processes to create a final form. For example, some common methods of sheet metal fabrication for Weymouth, Massachusetts include bending, rolling, laser cutting, punching, stamping, and water jet cutting.

Weymouth, Massachusetts sheet metal fabrication begins with thin, flat pieces of metal that come in large sheets or coils for easier handling. Some processes can be automated and machines 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 ranging from large metal lathes, to water jets, lasers and even hand tools.

  • Cutting is done by sawing, shearing, or chiseling; torching with hand-held torches such as oxy-fuel torches or plasma torches; and via numerical control (CNC) cutters using a laser, mill bits, torch, or water jet
  • Bending is done by hammering (manual or powered) or via press brakes, tube benders and similar tools
  • Assembling (joining of the pieces) is done by welding, binding with adhesives, riveting, threaded fasteners, or even yet more bending in the form of a crimped seam

Depending on a company’s product and requirements, welding could be a main component of sheet metal fabrication for Weymouth, Massachusetts. After the sheet metal parts are formed, they are assembled and tack-welded into place. Various welding techniques can be used in sheet metal fabrication to avoid warping or other visual defects. These include using a stout fixture, welding in a staggered manner, covering the metal with sand during the cooling process, and special straightening processes.

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 sheet metal fabrication 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 Weymouth, Massachusetts sheet metal fabrication methods as well.

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.

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.
