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 sheet metal


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.

sheet metal steel part


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

Stainless Steel

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.

sheet metal copper parts


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.

AnodizingAnodizing increases wear resistance, hardness, and corrosion resistance while preserving the metal's surface.AluminumGold, blue, clear, black, red, greyMatte smooth finish
Bead BlastingIt 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
BrushingIn 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, CopperN/ASatin
ElectroplatingIt 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, AluminumBlack, Grey, Clear, Gold, Blue, RedGlossy, smooth finish
PolishingThe 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/AGlossy
Powder CoatingUsing 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, AluminumBlack, Pantone number, or RAL codeSemi-glossy or glossy

Advantages of Sheet Metal Fabrication

  • Highly Durable
    Parts produced using sheet metal fabrication are often durable. They stand the test of time, regardless of usage, whether end use or prototyping.
  • Variety of Surface Finishing Options
    There is a wide variety of surface finishes with sheet metal fabrication. These include powder coating, custom finishes, anodizing, electroplating, bead blasting, and polishing.
  • Scalability and Flexibility
    Sheet metal fabrication has a low setup cost. This also translates to the low cost of parts production regardless of volume.
  • Material Selection and Thickness Options
    Copper, aluminum, stainless steel, steel, and brass are some of the material options available for sheet metal fabrication. Also, it allows the fabrication of metals up to 300mm in thickness.

Sheet Metal Fabrication FAQs

The material thickness ratio to the neutral axis is the K factor in the sheet metal process. This number fluctuates depending on the various physical traits and material thicknesses used.

The permissible variations for sheet metal part features required for accurate and dependable installation and integration are known as tolerances for sheet metal fabrication. For sheet metal products, ISO 2768-mk is often used to ensure precise control of the geometry and size components.

Every sheet metal fabrication project, including the design, potential prototype, surface finishing options, and others, has a corresponding cost. Beyond the cost of the process itself, materials are also expensive.

A part that is simply cut using a laser cutter often costs less money than one that is cut, bent and punched. The cost won't increase much because most sheet metal products need many forming processes.
