Sheet Metal Fabrication
Fabrication may be a cost-effective option for partially flat or hollow components.
We offer a wide range of sheet metal fabrication services, including laser cutting, automated full-sheet punching, bending and CNC forming, TIG/MIG welding, spot-welding, assembly, powder coating, plating, non-destructive testing and finishing.
ECT offers high-quality metal finishing, graining, and polishing on highly cosmetic products. Every day our finishing department staff utilizes tools and equipment such as Weber drum/rotary brushes/belt-driven machines, stroke sanding machinery, vibratory and tumbling equipment, blasting equipment, and a variety of hand-held power grinding tools to create some of the most highly polished surfaces in the industry.
Our sheet metal bending expertise allows us to offer custom design possibilities with the most exact precision. When compared to other metal fabrication processes, CNC bending maintains tight form tolerances, and a consistent process control.
Sheet metal bending and forming are used to maintain the high performance of the metal while reducing the risk of damage. Sheet metal bending may be used on both huge products and tiny components that need a quicker turnaround time.
More than two decades ago, laser cutting was developed as an industrial tool to be utilized for a variety of cutting operations. Metal cuts with a thickness of up to 1 inch are possible, as well as highly precise kerfs in very thin materials. CO2-lasers are the most widely used for industrial applications for cutting.
CNC Punching is a process for sheet metal manufacturing that is carried out by punch press machines. The process can either have a one head and tool rail design or multi-tool turret design. Programmed to move a sheet of metal in a 2-axis direction, CNC punching machines position the metal sheet under the punching ram as accurately as possible so that it will be ready to punch a hole or form the metal. Similar to most metal production machinery, components of a punch press include a bed, table punch, die, a rotating turret, and a frame.
