Sheet metal fabrication is a multi-step process that includes several distinct parts. Having a basic understanding of the elements involved in sheet metal fabrication when you begin a project will help you set realistic project requirements and expectations. At Stone City, we offer a comprehensive list of sheet metal fabrication services, and are fully capable of executing your project from start to finish.


Every sheet metal fabrication project begins with the design process. At Stone City, our engineers will work with your design team to create components with high manufacturability that meet all of your specifications. We can help you with concept design, design enhancement, and reverse engineering. We also produce prototypes that can be used to test a design before we begin the actual manufacturing process.

Sheet Metal Stamping

Stamping is a metal fabrication technique that involves forming flat pieces of metal into specific shapes using a die. Stamping is a cold-forming method, which means it doesn’t involve heat; in the stamping process, metal is shaped using sheer force. At Stone City, we offer high quality custom sheet metal stamping services.


Welding is typically one of the final steps in the metal fabrication process, as it involves joining separate metal pieces into a single component. Stone City has a variety of welding capabilities, including resistance welding and robotic welding.
