Industries We Serve
Value Engineering for Excellence
Value Engineering (VE) is the core of our approach. By analyzing the inherent value of each product or service, we aim to improve functions or reduce costs without compromising quality. Our team utilizes software like SolidWorks, Fabriwin, Mastercam, and TruTops for precise designs.
Sheet Metal Fabrication Techniques
Sheet metal fabrication involves intricate techniques like cutting, hemming, and bending. Processes like progressive stamping shape it into complex components used across various applications.
Understanding Sheet Metal Gauges
Gauges are used to measure sheet metal thickness, but they vary across materials. For instance, a 12-gauge stainless steel sheet measures .105 inches, while the same gauge in copper measures .108 inches. Check out our material thickness guide for more information.
