    Techniques and Equipment Gieske Uses for Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication

    Cutting

    Sheet metal cutting is a fundamental step in the metalworks process. It may be the initial phase of a comprehensive fabrication project or the only requirement for a particular job. In any case, we employ state-of-the-art equipment to ensure precise cuts for any sheet metal fabrication project:

    • CNC high-speed laser cutting
    • CNC water jet cutting
    • CNC plasma shape cutting
    • Hot chop saw
    • Cold saw
    • Metal plate shear
    • Large band saw

    Forming

    In the sheet metal fabrication process, the metal is shaped into the desired form using equipment that bends, rolls, or presses the material. During the forming stage, the metal's mass remains unchanged—only its shape is altered. At Gieske, we utilize a range of equipment to form sheet metal, including:

    • CNC brake
    • CNC tube bender
    • Powered slip roll

    Joining

    After the steel components are cut and formed, the next step in the sheet metal fabrication process is joining, where pieces of metal are connected to create the final product. There are various joining techniques, both fusion and mechanical. Some of the joining methods we use in sheet metal fabrication include:

    • TIG welding
    • MIG welding
    • Drill press
    • Soldering & brazing
    • Riveting

    Finishing

    The last step in the steel fabrication process is finishing. We offer a variety of finishing options to meet your project's specific requirements and achieve the final aesthetic you’re imagining. In-house, we provide polishing services that can achieve brushed, mirrored, or angel hair finishes using different techniques:

    • Hand finishing
    • Custom grinder finishing
    • Cloth buffing wheels
    • Orbital sander
    • 8’ Directional belt sander
    • Drill press

    Additionally, we have great relationships with external companies and collaborate with them to provide other finish options such as powder coating, plating, anodizing, and more.

    Your FAQs Answered by Our Expert Sheet Metal Fabricators

    What is sheet metal fabrication?

    Sheet metal fabrication is the process of turning sheets of metal into specific shapes and structures through various methods, such as cutting, forming, and joining. This process is used to create a wide range of products and components used in industries like automotive, aerospace, construction, and electronics.

    What are the advantages of sheet metal products?
    Fabricated sheet metal products are cost-effective with virtually no limitation on design capabilities and applications. When fabricated properly, sheet metal products are extremely durable and consistent in quality. It’s versatile, environmentally friendly, and can be fabricated quickly. With the advanced techniques Gieske utilizes, sheet metal fabrication is precise and allows us to achieve complex end results.
    Can you support large sheet metal fabrication projects?

    There are very few custom sheet metal fabrication projects we can’t handle—big or small. We like to say, “If you can imagine it, we can make it a reality!” We enjoy challenging sheet metal projects and are eager to see your design ideas and do everything possible to bring them to life. Contact us with the details of your project, and we’ll get back to you right away.

    How much does sheet metal fabricating cost?
    The cost of a sheet metal fabrication project depends on several factors: the project’s scope, the materials needed, the techniques and equipment involved, and whether we will handle the installation. Please contact us with your project’s details and design, and we’ll provide you with a no-obligation quote.
    How long will it take to complete a custom sheet metal fabrication project?

    During the quoting process, we will give you an estimated project timeline and completion date. We pride ourselves on fast turnaround times, but every project is different and there are several factors that will determine how long a project will take.
