The Sheet Metal Processing Metal Types you choose depends on factors such as the desired properties of the finished product, the intended use and cost considerations. Here are some of the Metal Types commonly used in sheet metal fabrication:



Operators widely use steel in manufacturing due to its strength, durability, and versatility. It comes in a variety of grades and is easy to weld and form.


Magnesium is a lightweight metal with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio. Operators widely use it in the aerospace and automotive industries, especially for components where weight reduction is critical..


Aluminium is lightweight and corrosion resistant, making it popular for applications ranging from aerospace to automotive parts.


Bronze is an alloy consisting mainly of copper and tin. Operators value it for its strength, corrosion resistance, and artistic qualities. Operators often use bronze in sculptures, bearings, and historical artifacts.


Operators use brass, a copper-zinc alloy known for its attractive golden appearance. Operators primarily use it for making ornaments, musical instruments, and plumbing fittings.


Operators use copper, a highly conductive metal, in electrical components and wiring. Operators also use it for its antimicrobial properties in some applications.


Galvanised steel is a type of coated steel that combines the corrosion resistance of zinc with the paintability of steel. Operators commonly use it in automotive body panels and appliances.
