Features of
Sheet Metal Fabrication

Metal Alloy Selection

Sheet metal parts have a wide range of applications. The design process starts with the selection of the right metal alloy. For most clients, the decision will be whether to use stainless steel or carbon steel. Both stainless steel and carbon steel come in many different alloys. Our sheet metal fabrication equipment can handle many different alloys. Our experienced engineers can help you select the right alloy for your application.

Sheet Metal Gauge

Next, you will want to choose the thickness, commonly referred to as gauge, for your custom sheet metal products. This decision will be largely based on your application. Our design engineers are experienced sheet metal fabricators and can guide you in the selection of the right gauge for your products. Sometimes we see different gauges incorporated into the same product.

Choosing the right alloys and the right gauge are the first two steps in making sure that your wire products are made efficiently and serve their intended purpose well.

Different Processes

The type of alloy and gauge you select will both impact the process used in sheet metal fabrication. Pronto has a variety of different machines that are used in different circumstances to bend, cut, and punch sheet metal.

We rely on our many years of experience and our team of engineers to develop a process that will optimize manufacturing your custom sheet metal parts, all based on your specifications. Designing the process is a collaborative approach among our design, production, quality control, and automation engineers. These processes are influenced by many factors including the alloys used, selection of equipment, types of welding involved, fixtures used, production run size, and other factors that we have developed over many years to save you time and money.

304 Stainless Steel

304 Stainless Steel is the most common stainless steel alloy in the world and for good reason. Its chromium and nickel content creates superior corrosion resistance, among other benefits.

316 Stainless Steel

316 Stainless Steel adds molybdenum, which increases corrosion resistance. It is a great choice for marine environments or anywhere corrosion is a significant concern.

1008 Carbon Steel

1008 Carbon Steel is a great choice for many applications and one of the most common carbon wire alloys. Versatile and a great choice for many applications.

Other Materials

We use a variety of other alloys. If you have a special requirement, do not hesitate to contact us.
