Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication

Lansco Manufacturing has offered custom, high-quality sheet metal fabrication since 1986. From complex, close tolerance machined fabrications to simple brackets, we provide top-notch quality, added value, and impeccable customer service to clients ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies. From light gauge sheet metal to heavy plate and structural weldments, our full-service sheet metal fabrication services include laser cutting, water jet cutting, welding, powder coating and more. We do food and pharmaceutical grade stainless steel welding and finishing and we excel at quick turnaround, close tolerances and critical finishes. We have the space, finances and software necessary to manage KanBan stocking programs and provide high quality products on-time at the lowest possible cost.

Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication

Custom sheet metal fabrication refers to the process of modifying stock sheet metal to fabricate parts. We do this using a variety of sheet metal fabrication capabilities, including:

  • CNC laser cutting services
  • CNC punching
  • CNC water jet cutting
  • CNC forming
  • Custom CNC milling & turning
  • Welding
  • Forming
  • Painting & powder coating
  • Electromechanical assembly

At Lansco Manufacturing, we adhere to close tolerances, and provide quick turnarounds and on-time deliveries. Our materials and advanced equipment are top-grade. Our custom metal fabrication facilities accommodate projects of virtually all sizes and support customers using Lean inventory management strategies to optimize their supply chains.

Advantages of Custom Metal Fabrication

Unique requirements necessitate custom parts that fit and perform exactly as intended. Custom-fabricated and machined parts bring many benefits, including:

  • Receiving exactly the parts you need, when you need them, at a competitive price
  • Precisely cut, formed, welded, and machined on specialized, advanced machinery
  • Inspection with instrumentation calibrated on a regular basis in order to provide consistent quality
  • Fine craftsmanship, guided by highly qualified engineers, managers and operators
  • Custom metal parts made from materials that comply with your every requirement
  • Custom finishes to your exact specifications

Sheet Metal Fabrication Processes

We provide a wide range of metal fabrication processes to create precisely the machined parts that our customers require:

  • CNC laser cutting services. This high-precision process uses programmable lasers to cut metals between ¼” to 1” thick. This process creates parts from a broad range of materials quickly, with minimal waste.
  • CNC punching. Precision-guided punching and stamping machines create holes, shapes, grooves, ribs, louvers and embossing in rolled or sheet metal materials.
  • CNC waterjet cutting. Designed to precisely cut thicker plate and non-metallic materials, waterjet cutting slices through metal using a thin water jet at 90,000 PSI.
  • CNC forming. Flat sheet metal is formed precisely using precision press brakes with multi axis CNC gaging and ram control.
  • MIG welding. Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding is an arc welding method that creates an electric arc between two metal workpieces and a consumable wire electrode. The arc heats the two workpieces to their melting point and the wire filler is added fusing the two components together.
  • TIG welding. Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding is another style of arc welding that relies on a non-consumable tungsten electrode to create the weld and an inert gas to shield the weld from environmental contaminants. Performed by highly skilled welders, this process creates a clean, precise weld bead often required in the food and pharmaceutical industries.
  • Resistance (spot) welding. Creating a metal bond by applying an electric current and pressure to melt and join two workpieces.
  • Robotic welding. Certified engineers program our robotic welding machines to create custom bonds with high speed and repeatability.
