Our state-of-the-art laser cutting facilities enable us to accurately produce complex exterior contours. The advantages of this process over other cutting techniques are numerous, including the ability to cut with intricate detail in a significantly reduced timeframe and with outstanding repeatability and consistency. It also provides a far superior edge that requires no de-burring or finishing. We are able to apply laser cutting techniques to a range of materials, but the process is generally more effective on carbon steels and stainless steels than on aluminium or copper alloys. You can find out more about our laser cutting capabilities by visiting the Saint Ann's Sheet Metal website.
CNC Punching is the more cost effective method of fabricating components from sheet metal. The machines that we use to carry out this process have a lower capital cost and use significantly less energy than laser cutting machines. Though CNC Punching is not quite as accurate as laser cutting, it is extremely fast and effective when used to produce a large number of similar holes or slots. Saint Ann's employs an experienced team of engineering experts who can advise on the best method for your particular application. Find out more about our CNC punching capabilities by visiting www.cncpunchingsheetmetal.co.uk.
MIG welding (Metal Inert Gas Welding) is the most commonly applied arc welding process, primarily because it is a fairly simple and versatile technique. Though initially developed for the fabrication of aluminium and non-ferrous metals, it can now be successfully applied to steels and other materials. We have an experienced team of welders who are able to complete MIG welding work to an extremely high standard. If you would like to find out more about the MIG welding process, just follow the link to our website!
TIG Welding (Tungsten Inert Gas Welding) is a slower but more versatile process that can be applied to steel, stainless steel and copper, as well as aluminium and non-ferrous metals. This technique offers the operator more control over the weld than MIG welding, allowing for a stronger, higher quality finish. You can find out more about the TIG welding process by visiting the Saint Ann's Sheet Metal website. If you have a welding project you would like to discuss with our experts, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Sheet metal has the ability to be formed and shaped using a variety of processes, each of which does something different to the metal to give it a particular shape or size. Saint Ann’s are able to undertake the following fabrication procedures:
Brackets – sheet metal brackets may be readily punched and laser cut from well-nested sheets in low to medium volumes.
Blanking – fast and efficient blanking of high volume components, including washers, spacers, shims and general punched parts.
Deep Drawing – this process is used for the production of automotive fuel tanks, kitchen sinks, 2-piece aluminium cans, etc.
Drawing – a process that forms sheet metal into a cylindrical or box shaped part using a punch which presses the blank to a die cavity.
Drilling – a process which can also be used to cut screw threads.
Linishing – a process which utilises a flat revolving cloth belt impregnated with an abrasive material to achieve a polished finish.
Press Brake Forming – a form of bending, used for long and thin sheet metal parts.
Roll forming – a continuous bending operation used to produce open profiles or welded tubes.
This is widely used manufacturing method for processing sheet metal in a cost effective manner.
Saint Ann’s operates a range of CNC bending presses that enable us to produce a variety of components in almost any volume, with bends that are consistent and highly accurate. For more information on our CNC bending capabilities, please head directly to the Saint Ann’s Sheet Metal website, or get in touch via telephone on 0115 9269649.
The Saint Ann's Sheet Metal Company has a vast amount of experience in the fabrication of a wide range of materials, including mild steel, aluminium, stainless steel, galvanised steel and zintec. Most of our work is with mild steel such as CR4 and HR4 in sheet, billet, bar, tube, wire or section format. Primary stainless steel materials are 430, 304 and 316, while the aluminium with which we most commonly work is commercial grade 1050.
Saint Ann's manufactures a diverse range of sheet metal components for a variety of demanding commercial and industrial sectors. Typical products currently include POS (Point of Sale) display components such as shelves, racks, etc., heat exchange boxes, catering equipment, ventilation cabinets, electronic enclosures, enclosures for the computer industry, refrigeration metalwork, vending and gaming machine components, grills, lighting units, surface mount switch boxes and much more.

This is a type of dry coating technique that unlike conventional liquid paint finishing does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. It is applied electrostatically and is afterwards cured under heat so that it forms a toughened skin. Powder coating is a process most commonly used for coating 'white goods' components, aluminium extrusions, and automobile and motorcycle parts. It produces a significantly thicker coating than conventional methods, without running or sagging, and also allows a number of speciality effects to be applied which would be impossible using other coating processes.
You can find out more about the advantages of powder coating by visiting the Saint Ann's Sheet Metal website.
The Saint Ann's Sheet Metal Company has the skills, facilities and experience to undertake a variety of metal plating processes:
Gold Plating - this is a method of depositing a thin layer of gold onto the surface of another metal, commonly copper or silver. It is often used in the electronics industry to provide a corrosion-resistant layer on electrical connectors and PCBs.
Silver Plating - also used in the electronics industry to improve corrosion-resistance. This is a less expensive process, though not quite as effective as gold plating.
Chrome Plating - often used to provide a mirror-like finish to metal furniture frames or automotive trim.
Zinc Plating - used to prevent oxidation of aluminium or stainless steels.
Tin Plating - provides a non-toxic corrosion-resistant finish typically required for food industry components.
This involves coating iron or steel with a thin zinc layer to improve resistance to rust. It is a process commonly applied to components used in consumer appliances, heating and cooling duct systems, and for roofing and walling applications. However, it is most often used to improve the corrosion-resistant performance of exterior body panels on automobiles and motorcycles. Galvanised steel is also suitable for high temperature applications of up to 200°C.
