We use quality sheet metals such as copper, brass, aluminum and steel in a number of finishes, including brushed, nickel-plated, polished, high-shine, powder-coated and hot-rolled or Corten (steel). All American Metal Fabrication can help you with large or recurring orders of custom-made parts delivered as a finished lot or an ongoing production schedule over time. If your needs are for high-quality, precision fabricated sheet metal parts, we are here to serve you.
We use quality sheet metals such as copper, brass, aluminum and steel in a number of finishes, including brushed, nickel-plated, polished, high-shine, powder-coated and hot-rolled or Corten (steel). All American Metal Fabrication can help you with individual parts, prototypes or large orders of custom made parts delivered as a finished lot or an ongoing production schedule over time. If your needs are for high-quality, precision fabricated sheet metal parts, we are here to serve you.
Our state-of-the-art fiber laser allows us to efficiently and accurately fabricate steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, and brass sheet metal parts and prototypes in a range of thicknesses. With a consistent tolerance of ±.002" at working speeds approaching 1200 inches per minute (IPM), the quality of our parts is unmatched, providing smooth, precise cut edges with no burns, dross or spatter. Additionally, fiber laser’s efficiency makes it a cost-effective cutting method, allowing for a lower per-part cost.
Since laser cutting is much faster than water jet cutting, utilizing this method allows us to operate at a higher rate of productivity for orders in which production speed is nearly as important as precision and quality. Using our extremely efficient fiber laser cutter, we’re able to scale the process to accommodate orders of all sizes. The advanced fiber laser technology enables us to deliver quality, durable sheet metal parts while minimizing scrap in less time than other fabrication methods.
Laser cutting has the ability to provide a higher level of precision than mechanical cutting methods. Since there is no blade to maintain, the cuts are not only easier to make but also sharper and cleaner to provide the smallest possible inside contours. There is far less opportunity for warping or burning to occur, and laser cutting is appropriate for jobs that are near impossible to execute through mechanical cutting.
The traditional punching and shearing capabilities we offer work exceptionally well on many types of projects. However, the majority of our work requires the extreme precision, fast setup and complex cutting ability provided by laser cutting. The incredible power, cutting path accuracy and lower energy footprint allow us to deliver finished parts of the highest possible quality within a shorter production timeline than is achievable through other methods.
All American Metal Fabrication is proud to showcase our masterful welding, executed to the exact specifications given. We specialize in clean, precise welds that maximize the structural integrity of custom sheet metal designs. When a smooth finish is desired, we sand and polish the surface to produce a sleek finished product.
To achieve the finish you desire, our experts patiently and proficiently grind and sand your product to a blemish-free look and feel. When appropriate, we use specialized tools to minimize the amount of time until you receive your finished product.
CNC, or Computer Numerical Control, allows us to use a computer to convert a design file into numbers, which control the cutter’s X, Y and Z axis, the movements corresponding to the numbers to fabricate your custom-designed sheet metal product to the exact specifications given by the design.
Since CNC machining is extraordinarily effective in conjunction with nearly any material, it provides virtually limitless fabrication potential. While there are many types of CNC machines, All American Metal Fabrication’s custom sheet metals are fabricated using the following:
Paired with CNC technology, the cuts made by a lathe machine are performed with high velocity and are extremely precise. Our CNC lathes are capable of producing intricate custom sheet metal pieces from complex designs with precision that would not be easily achieved on a manual machine.
CNC mills consist of a three-axis system that is capable of taking instructions from a series of commands, which guide the cuts based on the input design. These tools allow our fabrication efforts to be as precise as your design demands.
A 5-axis mill is an ultra-efficient multidimensional tool, with which we can create complex parts with unparalleled precision at a much faster production speed. This means you get the best, most precise parts with a shorter-than-average lead time.
All American Metal Fabrication is experienced and equipped to tackle any forming requirements that you have. Whether your project requires single or multi-bend components, we can facilitate ranges from delicate sheet metal to thicker and complex plates. We use tool-assisted and CNC machinery to make perfect bends in each component.Forming VIDEO
Taking advantage of our prototyping process will give you the assurance you need that your project is going to be exactly what you require. We’ll send you a prototype prior to beginning production on your large order to allow you to put your product to the test to ensure that it is exactly what you need.
Treating metal surfaces gives your finished piece the aesthetic you desire as well as extends the metal’s usable life. Our expert metalworkers provide a variety of surface finishes according to your specific needs.
We offer the following metal surface treatment methods:
To smooth the edges of newly cut metal parts, a deburring machine, consisting of a conveyor belt that runs through a series of brushes, provides a smooth surface on your final parts.
This method is commonly used for painting metal parts and is available in a wide range of colors. This process creates a protective surface barrier that protects metal from corrosion and gives the desired finished look.
This technique involves electroplating a thin layer of nickel onto a metal piece or part for the purpose of protecting the part from corrosion and wear as well as providing a desired aesthetic.
Commonly used in decorative finishes, this technique is conducted by an electrochemical process in which brass is layered over metal (typically iron), then coated with a lacquer to keep it from tarnishing.
A brushed, or “dull polished” surface is characterized by its unidirectional satin-type finish.
In metalworking, polishing refers to a finishing process that uses an abrasive work wheel, giving the finished product a smooth, bright finish.
