Serving All Types of Industries
Compu-Metal is a custom sheet metal fabricator specializing in manufacturing sheet metal parts. We are highly committed to providing top quality at competitive pricing with fast turnaround.
Compu-Metal is Able to Fabricate Everything From:
- Stainless Steel
We are truly experts in metal fabrication. Our capabilities include shearing, punching, bending, welding, plating, painting, silk screening, design & engineering, prototype & production. We offer excellent quality and highly affordable prices for all types of precision sheet-metal fabrication, services and products.
Our Manufacturing Capabilities Include:
Rapid Prototyping is a group of techniques that are used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design data. Construction of the part or assembly is generally done using 3D printing or “additive layer manufacturing” technology.
CNC (Computer numerically controlled) punching is a process of manufacturing that is carried out by CNC punch presses. These machines can be either a single head and tool rail design or a multi-tool turret design. The choice of holes punched can be as simple as a circle or rectangle or as special of a shape as necessary to suit a specific cut out design. Compu-Metals many turret presses provide us with one of the most efficient and versatile methods of stamping sheet metal. We specialize in parts ranging from .020″ to 3/16″ aluminum or 1/8″ steel.
Shearing is a metal fabricating process that is used to cut straight lines on flat metal stock. During the shearing process, an upper blade and a lower blade are forced past each other with the space between them determined by a required offset.
Characteristics of the Shearing Process Include:
- Metal Placement Between Upper and Lower Shear Blades
- The Ability to Create Straight-Line Cuts on Flat Sheet Stock
- The Trademark Production of Slightly Deformed and Burred Metal Edges
- The Ability to Cut Relatively Small Lengths of Material at Any Time
Punching is a metal forming process that uses a punch press to force a tool, called a punch, through the workpiece to create a hole via shearing.
Characteristics of the Punching Process Include:
- It’s Quick
- Its Ability to Create Multiple Shaped Holes
- Creates a Burnished Region Roll-Over, and Die Break on Sidewall of the Resulting Hole
- Punches and Dies are Generally Fabricated from Conventional Tool Steel or Carbides
- Punching is the Most Cost Effective Process of Creating Holes in Strip or Sheet Metal for Average to High Fabrication
Tig/Mig And Spot Welding
At Compu-Metal, we are able to manually weld all aluminum, steel and stainless steel materials and alloys. We use MIG, TIG and Spot Welding techniques as needed or as requested by our customers.
The Various Welding Methods Offer Several Different Advantages:
- Minimum Cleanup
- High Productivity
- Higher Deposition Rates
- Can Weld Sheet Metals in all Positions
- Long Welds can be Carried Out Without Interruption
- Spatter Free
- Low Distortion
- Superior Quality Welds
- Welding Variables can be Precisely Controlled
- Welding can be Carried Out With or Without Fillers
- High Speed Welding
- Suited for High-Rate Production
Drilling is a cutting process that uses a drill bit to cut or enlarge a hole of circular cross-section in solid materials. The bit is pressed against the piece of work and is rotated at rates from hundreds to thousands of revolutions per minute. This forces the cutting edge against the piece of work, cutting off chips from the hole as it is drilled.
Machining is any variety of various processes in which a piece of raw material is cut into a desired final shape and size by a controlled material-removal process.
Forming is the metalworking process of fashioning metal parts and objects through mechanical deformation. the work-piece is reshaped without adding or removing material, and its mass remains the same.
Plating is a surface covering in which a metal is deposited onto a conductive surface.
Plating is Used for a Variety of Purposes:
- To Harden
- To Decorate Objects
- To Alter Conductivity
- For Radiation Shielding
- And Many Other Purposes
- To Improve Solderability
- For Corrosion Inhibition
- To Improve Paint Adhesion
- To Improve IR Reflectivity
- To Improve Wearability, to Reduce Friction
Powder coating is a specific type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.
Compu-Metal offers a broad range of high quality industrial painting services and coating services. Whether your application calls for single or multi-coat protection of steel surfaces and structures, or if you are looking for a quick curing coating system for manufacturing applications, our experienced staff can help you decide the best application to fit your needs and specifications.
Silk screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh in the open ares. Our silkscreen printing capabilities adds the final touches to your job. Silk screening is done in our own silkscreen department where our trained personnel create quality printing.
Hardware Insertion And Assembly
Compu-Metal offers a broad selection of assembly services ranging from all types of fastener insertion to riveting and helicoil insertion. With state of the art hardware insertion tools, we quality assure products are assembled to your exact specification. Our machines include programmable equipment that can display model parts with exact locations of where and how the hardware is to be inserted. Our engineers will work with you to streamline the assembly process to reduce cost while delivering quality hardware products.
We apply our expert techniques to assemble products built from our fabricated components. The components assembled and integrated can range from simple mechanical assemblies of fabricated sheet metal parts to complex electro-mechanical assemblies with extensive bills of material. Assembly and integration can include inspection, testing and custom packaging of your product.
We know that you expect a certain level of quality and service in a product and we’re here to make sure you get it! Here at Compu-Metal we pay close attention to detail throughout every stage of the process. of quality in a service or product, especially by means of attention to every stage of the process of delivery or production.
