Our core competencies in metal fabrication include cutting, bending, grinding, welding, and finishing. Learn more about the role of sheet metal fabrication in the government and military sectors and how H&S can help.
Importance of Sheet Metal Fabrication in Government & Military Applications
As the material of choice for equipment like weapons, trucks, and armor, metal is an incredibly common material in the military sector. When providing metal fabrication services for government and military projects, precision is key. Any products generated through machining and welding for the military must comply with applicable Mil-Spec requirements, and every part must be virtually identical. These standards are high so government organizations and branches of the military can rely on uniform components that perform as expected with no risk of failure in the field.
Custom sheet metal fabricators play a key role in outfitting militaries with durable parts and products that offer consistent performance in virtually any environment. Many require alloys or specialty metals that necessitate careful processing. Experienced steel fabrication contractors can reliably generate components in high volumes while complying with all necessary regulations and certification requirements for these sectors.
Our Government & Military Sheet Metal Fabrication Capabilities
Our metalworking shop is well-equipped to serve military and defense organizations with contractor-required metal fabrication in compliance with Mil-Spec standards and safety and quality regulations. We can fabricate anything from prototypes and small production runs to high-volume orders. For metal between 0.015 and 0.187 inches thick, we can achieve extremely tight tolerances ranging from ±0.005 inches to ±0.015 inches.
Throughout each sheet metal fabrication stage, we adhere to industry-mandated contract flowdown requirements so our clients can trust the integrity and performance of their parts. We have the capabilities in place to handle Covered Defense Information (CDI), and we adhere to DFARS Clause 252.204-7012. Also, we take security very seriously for all clients, which is why we’ve invested heavily in our facility’s physical security as well as contracted with a cybersecurity firm for real-time monitoring and alerts.
We work with stainless steel, hot- and cold-rolled steel, aluminum, copper, brass, and other metals for product versatility. With typical lead times of four weeks as part of our commitment to on-time delivery, our wide range of fabrication capabilities include:
- Cutting, including manual, plasma, laser, and waterjet options
- Bending, with options for U- and V-shaped bends
- Graining and grinding for an optimal, consistent surface finish
- MIG, TIG, and arc welding (meeting any necessary standards for military welding)
- Punching holes and inserting hardware with Haeger presses
- Finishing capabilities such as plating, sandblasting, powder coating, painting, and silk screening
In our facility, we operate multi-tool equipment ranging from plasma and laser cutters to punch presses, press brakes, and power tools. Additionally, we utilize sophisticated engineering software, working with file formats such as AutoCad, SolidWorks, .STEP, .DWG, .DFX, and more.
