We provide hundreds of hardware products—from screws to fasteners—specifically designed for sheet metal fabrication.

Gas metal arc welding (MIG) 和 gas tungsten arc welding (TIG) are possible on sheet metal parts at Protolabs. When designing a part requiring welding, it is best to not specify the exact method or type of welding unless required for function. This provides us increased flexibility when fabricating the sheet metal part, which often results in the most economical 和 fastest lead-time choice for the customer.

PEM硬件插入铆接 is an available secondary sheet metal process. It's important to make sure the hardware is not too close to a bend, edge, or other fastener. When designing near a bend or edge, use the centerline-to-edge (C/L-to-Edge) value to find the minimum distance to the outside edge. When calculating the spacing between multiple pieces of hardware, use the C/L-to-Edge formula plus ½ the diameter of the second mounting hole.
