What is sheet metal processing? 

Sheet metal processing is a broad concept that covers a large number of machining operations applied to metal sheets. It is often done on behalf of diverse industrial manufacturing companies, who then incorporate the processed sheet material into their own production lines.

Examples of sheet metal processing:


  • Assembling
  • Autogenous cutting (fire cutting)
  • Boring
  • Coating
  • Cutting
  • Deburring
  • Drilling
  • Punching
  • Sawing
  • (Smooth) rolling mills
  • Tapping
  • Welding
  • Water Cutting
