Our Sheet Metal Fabrication Process
At Xincheng, we use sheet metal manufacturing processes that ensure your products reach the market smoothly. As a leading sheet metal fabricator, we offer endless capacity for metal fabrication. Our immense production capacity guarantees rapid shipment and delivery, regardless of the volume ordered.
At XinCheng, we use laser cutting to create metal parts and prototypes with high precision, tolerance, and accuracy.
This sheet fabrication uses superheated gas to shape metal parts. Cut parts often require little to no secondary finish.
This process cuts metal with a powerful stream of water. We use waterjet cutting to fabricate metal parts with high quality.
Bending as a metal fabrication process is ideal for shaping stainless steel, steel, aluminum parts, and other metal sheets.

Sheet Metal Fabrication Materials
Regardless of usage or requirements, you can count on XinCheng to assist you in locating the proper material for your sheet metal components. The following is a list of the common materials we offer for custom sheet metal fabrication.
Aluminum being a lightweight metal, has several desirable qualities, making it one of the most popular materials for sheet metal fabrication parts. It is also recyclable, thereby generating the least quantity of waste.
Other qualities that make aluminum stand out are its cost-effectiveness, high rate of production, low resistance rates, and high thermal conductivity. Ideal grades of aluminum for this process include 5052, 6061, and 7075.
Steel has several advantages for industrial uses, such as hardness, durability, heat, and corrosion resistance. Steel sheet metal is the best material for creating intricate designs and elements that need to be extremely precise. Moreover, steel is inexpensive to deal with and has superior polishing qualities.
Stainless steel has a minimum of 10% chromium by weight. Due to its material characteristics, stainless steel is popular in several industries, including building, automotive, aerospace, and more. These sectors can use stainless steel, a versatile material, for various applications. Stainless steel grades ideal for sheet metal engineering include; 304, 301, and 316.
Copper offers good ductility and malleability necessary for sheet metal fabrication. It also provides excellent electrical and heat conductivity, making it the go-to metal for fabricating products with high conduction requirements. Due to its anti-bacterial and biostatic attributes, the C1100 copper grade finds extensive use in the sheet metal fabrication industry.
Brass is corrosion-resistant, highly malleable, spark and wear-resistant, with excellent electrical conductivity. It also has low friction, which makes it desirable for several purposes. Brass grades; C28000 and C27400 are ideal for sheet metal fabrication.
Sheet Metal Fabrication Surface Finishing Options
Select from a wide range of finishing options that change the sheet metal parts’ finished surfaces. Applying surface finish to product parts increases corrosion resistance, improves aesthetic appeal, and reduces cleaning time.
|Anodizing||Anodizing increases wear resistance, hardness, and corrosion resistance while preserving the metal's surface.||Aluminum||Gold, blue, clear, black, red, grey||Matte smooth finish|
|Bead Blasting||It leaves the surface of parts or products with a matte smooth finish. Mostly used for visual purposes.||Steel, Stainless steel, Aluminum, ABS||N/A||Matte|
|Brushing||In this surface-treatment technique, rough belts are utilized to leave marks on a material's surface. This is typically done for aesthetic reasons.||Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Brass, Copper||N/A||Satin|
|Electroplating||It includes options for decorative and functional electroplating, etc. Chrome plating is also an example of electroplating, which is a process of manipulating properties through electrical tooling.||Stainless Steel, Steel, Aluminum||Black, Grey, Clear, Gold, Blue, Red||Glossy, smooth finish|
|Polishing||The technique of polishing involves giving an object's surface a smooth, shiny appearance through physical rubbing or chemical intervention.||Steel, Brass, Stainless Steel, Aluminum||N/A||Glossy|
|Powder Coating||Using a dry, free-flowing powder, powder coatings are one type of coating. Powder coating is often applied electrostatically and subsequently hardened by heat or UV light.||Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminum||Black, Pantone number, or RAL code||Semi-glossy or glossy|
