We are proud to be able to show case some of the varied sheet metal work projects and fabrications that we manufacture here in Fareham, Hampshire, UK.
At V and F Sheet Metal we consider the difference between sheet metal work components and sheet metal fabrications to be that between single components and assemblies of more than one component. These assembles may be created by the simple spot welding of two or more sheet metal components together, TiG welding thinner gauge sheet metal components together or MiG welding thicker gauges of sheet metal, angles or plate. Brazing welding techniques can still have a place in today’s welding fabrication procedures although they have been replaced in many instances by TiG and MiG welding. We would also include stud welding as a form of fabrication as it does rely on a form of welding. Sheet metal fabrications and assemblies are used where a single component cannot solve a particular design requirement. It may be that several differing gauges of metal are needed in one component design, or perhaps water tight joints in a storage tank, often complex features that cannot be bent from just one component or sheet metal components with built in captive male or female fixing points.
From the smallest mild steel brackets or thin gauge anodised aluminium lighting reflectors through to complete welded enclosure housing assemblies we can help you with your designs, manufacture, treat and finish your sheet metal projects all from our manufacturing workshops here in Fareham, Hampshire.
