How Car Sheet Metal Fabrication Works?
Car sheet metal fabrication is widely used in the automotive industry. It works in creating auto parts, structural frames, and the metal body of a car.
The process is used in modifying and customizing automobile components. It is also required for precise roll-bar fabrication, vintage reconditioning, fixing or restoration process, and body reforming. So, if you are part of the automotive industry and you need a custom car parts supplier and fabrication professional, choose KDM!
Sheet Metal Options
Sheet metals that are most common for automotive projects include stainless steel, aluminum, and mild steel.
We used these materials for creating bulkheads, dashboards, and other car parts because of their malleability, softness, and lightweight properties. They also produce attractive polish and do not corrode, unlike other materials. We made them unbreakable as well. However, car parts made of aluminum are the most recommended ones, especially if you need durable parts for car repair or custom interior restoration.
KDM performs fabrication processes depending on your applications. If automotive parts are used as seats, door panels, or body panels, we can provide custom fabrication. Step by step processing starts from:
- Cutting – We used numerous advanced cutting tools in this process.
- Forming & bending – It creates U-bends, V-bends, and custom bends to match automotive projects.
- Bonding – In the bonding process, the sheet metals are joined together by riveting, welding, adhesives, and brazing.
- Finishing – After the sheet metals are cut, bent, and joined into desired forms, the next step is the finishing process. Each surface is finished with silk screening, paint and powder coatings, and custom surface treatments.

Car Sheet Metal Fabrication: The Ultimate Guide
I know choosing appropriate car sheet metal fabrication technique, material, surface finish and parts can be a challenging process.
A reason this guide explores everything you need to know about fabricating car sheet metal parts.
Take a look:
Figure 1 Sheet metal car parts
There are several factors to be considered when choosing the best material for the fabrication of the car part including strength, conductivity, corrosion resistance and hardness.
Below is a list of materials that can be used for sheet metal car parts fabrication:
Steel: It is the most commonly used metal because it is easy to weld, hard and relatively cheap.
However, steel is prone to corrosion and alloys of steel can be used instead.
Carbon Steel: Generally, steel contains carbon only that the carbon steel has a higher content of carbon and this can be used to make car parts and steel wires; it is hard and may not be modified into desired shape if the carbon content is too high.
Stainless Steel: It is a bit expensive and does not rust, the parts produced using stainless steel tend to have a shiny and silvery coating.
It is easy to roll into shapes and sizes as desired, but cannot be assembled with different metals except through modifying its resistance to corrosion.
Aluminum: It is more expensive compared to standard steel and it has a light weight, it does not rust and it is easy to work with.
Copper: Copper does not rust and it does not respond so well to machining but can create attractive products. It is relatively expensive when compared to other materials.
The fabrication process involves the following:
Cutting Car Sheet Metal
In this procedure, a metal sheet is cut by applying force through the use of enhanced cutting tools.
Below is a description of these tools and what they can cut.
- Cutting with Shear: involves the application of shear force to cut the sheet metal and there are three types; Shearing used in cutting larger parts, Punching used to make holes on the metal sheet and Blanking used to cut part perimeters from the sheet metal.
- Cutting without Shear: this is normally preferred when there is need for higher precision and fast production times.
There are 3 types including; Laser Beam Cutting which uses highly powered laser beams, Plasma Cutting which uses accelerated plasma beams to cut sheet metals which can conduct electricity, Waterjet Cutting which uses waterjet machines and does not produce heat.
Bending Car Sheet Metal
After cutting, the next process is to bend through the use of tools like press brakes.
The bends could be v-bends, u-bens depending on the needs of the project.
Rotary bending and elastomer are used to make new shapes with finished metal sheets.
Assembling Car Sheet Metal
Figure 2 Car sheet metal component
After the formation of bends and shapes, these sheet metals are joined together to form the desired parts through the use of welding, riveting, brazing and adhesives.
After the assembling of the sheet metals, the surface finish can be done with paint and powder coatings or silk screening.
The automated finishes put in place are meant to enhance properties such as resistance and conductivity.
You can also find polished surfaces, depending on your requirements.
This is a list of car parts made through sheet metal fabrication; Body panels, most bolt-on parts, Seat rails, most brackets, Hinges, Seat belt latches, Seat belt buckles, Brake backing plates, Battery cable connectors, ECU housings, Catalytic converter housings, Engine oil pans, Radiators and Bumper reinforcement bars.
- Custom Car Parts Modification: is the process of replacing or altering parts like the of passenger car in order to improve the performance.
- Vintage Car Restoration: the process of disassembling many parts or the whole vintage car and replacing them with fabricated or new parts to make a restoration and maintain the original shape
Below is a description of how to test for quality of automotive parts.
- Strength of materials: This is determined by the components in metal material, though when it comes to polymers, it is determined by the density and type of molecules used.
This will require the analysis of material composition to check for strength and stability.
- It is necessary to test static traits of springs, failure of parts and strength of materials and should in accordance with ASTM, ISO and other standards.
- It is also important to evaluate car body and engine suspension and this is to evaluate the kind of material use by the use of universal testing machines.
- Tensile testing is used to test car body and evaluate seats, car belts and O-rings.
This also ensures comfortability and durability of car seats and belts which are an important aspect of safety.
The strength of seat belts must be tested and the rubber of the car seat through compression testing. Due to the size of the car seats, a wide-design testing equipment is often needed.
- In Manual transmissions, drive train and engine are connected through the clutch at every direction.
The clutch functions several times during one driving session and needs the best tuning there is.
In high-output engines, the drive train should be strong enough to transfer engine power. Therefore, testing is done to determine the strength of the clutch string and the force it can produce.
There are some machines that have several jigs like spring compression plates and devices used to measure displacement, these machines allow for measurements of even the slightest distortions in the car parts.
