As the name suggests, sheet metal is some type of metal (usually steel, tin, nickel, titanium, aluminum, brass, or copper) that is flattened into a sheet shape. From there, sheet metal fabrication is the act of shaping sheet metal using heat and other tools to mold it into a custom shape. This is often done to build machines and other hard materials that require a hollow interior space. The sheet metal can also be formed as an outer layer that covers a different material. You’ll see sheet metal fabrication used to create kitchen appliances, airplane fuselages, roofing materials, and many other everyday materials.

Sheet Metal Fabrication from Blue Star Heating & Cooling

There are several different techniques commonly used in sheet metal fabrication. Laser cutting is most commonly used for creating technology like computers and other electronics. It allows the fabricator to have extreme precision and pinpoint accuracy while also being very energy efficient and low-cost. Stamping is done to alter the metal into a new shape using a tool and die. Pressure is applied to bend the sheet metal into the desired shape. Punching is the act of perforating a hole into sheet metal that is then used to attach the sheet to another material.

Gus responded within minutes and came to work on the project same day. He was very honest and thorough with the details of what he was doing. He also explained some tips and what to watch out for when maintaining the ac unit.

Very nice, very helpful, very knowledgeable, and went that little extra to make you feel special. Thank you.

David D

Very professional and prompt. While conducting the cleaning(which there was quite a lot of dust and debris) of furnace, Gustavo discovered that a bird had flown into it and that was causing furnace from not starting up. Now I know the issue and what to do it prevent further issues. Thank You Gustavo

Gus and Jesse explained everything they were doing and noticed the area around my water heater was damp. After checking it, they told me to keep an eye on it rather than recommending immediate replacement. I have already recommended them to friends.
