Sheet Metal Fabrication Services

We have high speed, state of the art metal fabrication equipment that is best suited for repetitive, low-to-high volume and high-mix production runs. As a complete tool and die shop, we are skilled in all areas of fabrication including fiber laser, CNC punching, CNC bending, CNC forming, welding, CNC machining, hardware insertion and assembly. Many of our processes are automated, such as the material handling on our two 5000-watt fiber lasers, allowing us to run minimally attended or even lights out. We can handle any portion of your project from laser cutting flat blanks to providing you with a full assembly ready to ship to your customer. Our on-time delivery average is 95%.


(2) 5000-watt fiber lasers with material handling automation, 60 x 120" max sheet

CNC Punching: 20-ton capacity. Max. sheet size 48" x 96". Material thickness range .006" to .25"

CNC Brakes: Up to 300-ton capacity and 14 feet of bending

Hardware Insertion equipment

MIG, TIG & Spot Welding

Managing painting, plating or other subcontracted services

We accept raw material in sheets, plates, bars or tubes and are experienced in working with a variety of materials like aluminum, copper, stainless steel and carbon steels. Other services include hardware insertion, welding, grinding, machining, turning and assembly. As your volumes increase we also have the option of hard tooling your parts to run in our metal stamping department. Inspection options range from simple feature checks all the way through FAIR & PPAP.
