Brass sheet metal
Sheet metal brass fabrication is when flat sheets of brass are turned into metal products or structures.
The sheet metal fabrication process can be done by punching, folding, cutting, welding and assembling.
The sheet metal brass can be stretched, cut, and bent into nearly any shape by cutting and burning.
Brass is an alloy of a small amount of zinc and copper, thus making it unique.
Sheet metal brass fabrication has the following benefits that make it suitable for various applications and uses:
Fabricating Brass Is Economical
Minimal costs are incurred when purchasing sheet metal brass fabricated parts as they are efficient, of high quality, and light.
Fabricated Brass Parts Are Durable
Fabrication of sheet metal brass gives a durable surface that can withstand harsh weather conditions such as extreme cold and hot environments.
Additionally, brass sheet metal is:

Sheet metal brass parts
The following are the applications of fabricated sheet metal brass parts:
- Used in plumbing fixtures
- Used in railings and handles
- Mechanical accessories
- Musical instruments
- Used in locks or doorknobs
- They are used in industries where water temperatures vary because of their corrosion-resistance property.
- They are used in electrical components.
Brass is an alloy made of zinc and copper.
The following are some of the types of brass sheet metals for fabrication:
Alloy C260 is also known as cartridge brass.
Cartridge brass is available in sheet, tube, and plate form and has a warm yellow tone.
Alloy C464 is known as naval brass.
Naval brass is corrosion resistant and has high strength.
Alloy C464 is primarily used in maritime construction because of its nature of corrosive-resistant and where complex and robust material is needed.
Alloy C464 is suitably used in salt and fresh water.
The following are the components made from naval brass:
- Propeller shafts
- Ornamental fittings
- Nautical hardware
Alloy C353 is also known as leaded brass.
Lead content might be up to 3.5%.
Pressure tightness comes from the addition of lead seal shrinkage holes.
The following are components that can be made from Alloy C353:
- Architectural hardware
- Specialty fasteners
- General-purpose machine equipment
The following are the methods of fabricating sheet metal brass parts:
Forming Brass Sheet Metal
Bending brass sheet metal
Forming as a method of sheet metal fabrication distorts or bends the metal to produce components and parts.
Forming also involves a comprehensive method using CNC press brakes known as rolling to form metal parts.
The workpiece is shaped into the desired form by repeatedly feeding metal sheets through parallel rollers.
Metal materials lose their form and not their mass through this fabrication process.
Welding Brass Sheet Metal
Welding is a fabrication process used to fabricate sheet metal brass into the desired shape and thickness.
The following are the techniques used in the welding process:
TIG is suitable for sheet metals whose thickness range between 8-10mm.
TIG uses an infusible tungsten-based electrode and an electric arc to generate welds
This method involves a wire electrode repeatedly fed through the welding gun and then into the weld pool.
Shielding gas is fed through the gun to protect the pool from contamination.
Laser welding is a fabrication process that melts the metal using a solid-state, high-powered laser resonator.
The process provides for consistency of production and high-quality welds.
Cutting Brass Sheet Metal
As a fabrication process method, cutting can be the first step in an extensive fabrication process.
Cutting involves a material being cut into smaller pieces, or the material is split.
Cutting is done in different ways, which include:
- Power scissors
- Waterjet cutting
- Laser cutting
- Plasma arc cutting
Shearing is a fabrication process for sheet metal brass that involves cutting the sheet metal brass out of a more extensive flat stock or roll to size.
The material is fractured into separate, smaller pieces due to cutting blades coming together through the shear machine.
Shearing creates clean cuts of high quality and can be quickly repeated.
Benefits of using shearing
- It produces a large output within a short time.
- As compared to other methods, shearing produces clean cuts.
Cutting brass sheet metal
Punching Brass Sheet Metal
Punching is a fabrication process in which a material is removed from a piece of sheet metal by applying a great enough shearing force.
This process produces cutouts and holes of different sizes and shapes.
Stamping Brass Sheet Metal
Stamping is a fabrication method that uses a mechanical, hydraulic stamping press with a tool and dies.
This process is similar to punching; the material does not require to be removed from sheet metal for stamping.
Stamping is applied in the following activities:
Fabricated brass parts
The following are the reasons for surface finish for fabricated sheet metal brass parts:
- To design the coating material thickness.
- To improve abrasion and corrosion resistance.
Some of the available surface finishes for fabricated sheet metal parts include:
Powder Coating Brass Sheet Metal Parts
Powder coating is a type of surface finish in which a dry powder is electrostatically applied to the heat sink metal to form a layer.
The surface of the sheet metal brass part becomes more durable and more rigid after heat curing.
Applications of powder coating are:
- Outdoor signs
- Windows and doors
- Automotive components
- Furniture and outdoor equipment
Benefits of powder coating include:
- Curing time is fast
- It gives a more uniform and thicker surface finish
- Possibility of furnishing unique custom colors and finish textures
- No running or drip is observed as compared to liquid paint.
Anodizing Brass Sheet Metal Parts
This type of surface finish increases the thickness of a custom copper heatsink layer through the passive electrolytic process.
Applications of anodizing include:
- Scientific instruments
- Home appliances
- Computer hardware
- Building materials
- Oil rig structures and components
- Construction materials
- Marine part
Benefits of anodizing include
- Results in a smooth finish
- Enhances hardness
- A colored finish can be created by adding dyes
- Improves wear resistance and corrosion abrasion
Galvanized Dipped Brass Sheet Metal Parts
Galvanized dipped involves a metal submerged into molten brass to form an alloy coating.
This method is suitable to protect the metal from corrosion damage as it offers a physical barrier to the metal.
Applications of galvanized dipped include:
- Electronic equipment
- Electronic boxes
- Light fixtures
- Automotive and machinery parts
Benefits of galvanized dipped include:
- Economical as the minimal cost is incurred
- Improves corrosion resistance
- A uniform finish is created
- The process is fast
- With galvanized dipped, the thickness of the surface finish is adjusted
- Best longevity of the finish
E-coating Brass Sheet Metal Components
E-coating is also referred to as electrophoretic painting.
E-coating involves a thin coating applied by epoxy paint to a metal surface.
An electric current is used with a bath made of resins, paint, and pigments in a water-based solution to deposit the coating particles on the metal surface.
Applications of E-coating include:
- Outdoor tools and equipment
- Automotive parts
- Marine components
Benefits of E-coating include:
- Provides corrosion resistance
- Suitable for increasing surface thickness
- It can be used as a primer for other finishing
- The user has a consistent thickness
- Offers even coating
Passivation On Sheet Metal Brass Components
Stainless steel is exposed to an acid solution to create a passive metal by removing air from the surface.
The reactivity of the metal’s surface is changed by the elements left behind to form more rust and corrosion resistance finish.
Passivation is considered the best next step because methods such as cutting, grinding, and welding alter the metal surface.
Applications of passivation include:
- Food manufacturing equipment
- Pharmaceutical equipment
Before the passivation process is applied, it is essential to ensure that the metal is cleaned; if not, the process will turn out unsuccessful.
Passivation can be sued for cleaning stainless steel, and corrosion can result from surface damage.
Benefits of passivation include:
- Corrosion resistance is improved
