What are the Different Forms of Metal Fabrication?
With the right tools, there are an endless number of things that we at Sheridan Metal Products Ltd. can make from a simple sheet of metal. We’ve been steel fabricators in the Toronto area for over thirty-five years and our team have over fifty combined years of experience in the field. If you need custom metal fabrication services in Mississauga or anywhere else in the GTA, let us tell you about some of the most common ways of doing it:
This is our specialty because it’s one of the easiest, fastest and most accurate methods for custom metal fabrication. If you’ve designed a new and improved machine part, for example, we can program its specifications into a computer that guides a laser cutter to create your design out of sheet metal. If your Mississauga business needs metal products produced with precision and speed, laser cutting can do the job.
If you’re developing a new product, a new kind of car component for example, you want your first version to look sleek and modern. Nothing says “prototype” more than square edges and obviously welded lines. With our press brakes, we can bend aluminum, stainless steel or steel to whatever specifications you like, giving your design a finished, professional look.
Do you have an idea for a new metal furniture design? If you want to bring your concept to life, you’ll most likely need to manipulate aluminum or steel in a variety of ways so it looks the way you want it to. To achieve metal cylinders, we use a metal roller. This machine can bend or roll sheets of metal that are up to 1/8” thick and 12 feet long. From pipes to bars to rods, we can give your project the smooth curves that it needs.
Welding for Aluminum, Stainless Steel and Steel
Our team of steel fabricators in Toronto have been welding for many years. Whether you just need to make a custom window-frame for your home or a more complicated, ornamental railing design, we can take care of it for you. We specialize in both Tungsten inert gas (TIG) and metal inert gas (MIG) welding. TIG welding requires an operator to guide the process so, while it takes a little longer, you’ll get a stronger product. MIG welding, on the other hand, is semi-automated. If you need a lot of welding done quickly, that may be a more cost-effective method for you.
