Sheet Metal Fabrication Services
Our services encompass automated and computer controlled technology. Our experts have experience with many types of metal including stainless and carbon steel, aluminum and alloys.
An advantage of laser cutting includes is the transforming a flat sheet of metal into clean, precise parts with different characteristics without extra tooling. Precision laser cut parts achieve greater quality consistency due to the ability to hold tight tolerances. Laser cutting is a fast, repeatable and highly accurate process providing burr-free cuts and more efficient production.
Turret punching of sheet metal is performed by moving the metal to accurately position the sheet under the punch. The punch then comes down with enough force to cut the metal stock. By using a combination of single hits and overlapping sequences, complex metal component shapes can be produced.
Brake presses simplify the process of bending and forming sheet metal by exerting a force on a set of dies by hydraulic or electric means.
Our brake presses, with capacities ranging from 60 to 175 tons along with an extensive tooling inventory, allow us to perform multiple bends in a single handling resulting in quality production at lower costs. Our various machines provide high speed movement and accurate ram repeatability.
We focus on manufacturing support along with outstanding customer service, consistent quality and on-time delivery.
Sheet Metal Stamping Services
Metal stamping is a process that uses dies to transform flat sheet metal into finished parts by punching, cutting and/or shaping the material. To create three dimensional shapes, a flat sheet of metal is inserted into a die and a mechanical press is activated to create the part.
Our numerous machines ensure that we have the proper equipment for our customers. DMP can produce short run productions, as well as long run operations of hundreds thousands of pieces per year. Packing and shipping can be provided as needed.
