Sheet Metal Stamping

Since 1969, Pro-Type Industries, Incorporated has been committed to providing precision sheet metal fabrication services that set the standard in the DC Metro for quality and value. Our staff of industry professionals are skilled craftsmen with decades of broad-based metal fabrication experience. When combined with some of the most advanced metal fabrication equipment available, we can offer unmatched process flexibility and value. From forming and shearing to punching, rolling, stamping, and laser cutting, we have the capabilities to accommodate the most stringent requirements. Our facility is equipped with CNC punches with 4’ x 12’ capacity featuring in-turret forming and live tooling. Our shear can cut material up to ¼” in thickness and up to 10’ in length, and we can roll sheets up to 5’ in width and ¼” in thickness. We also operate a number of high precision CNC brakes that allow us to provide high accuracy forming regardless of quantity or geometric complexity up to 10’ in length.

Another productivity enhancing resource is our brand new 6000W Mitsubishi Fiber Laser. This state of the art cutting system utilizes flying optics, can accommodate material up to 5’ x 10’, and provides clean cuts, narrow kerfs, at high speed on material from .01” up to 1” in thickness. Equipped with an automatic pallet changer, it is suited for log runs as well as single part production. All of our CNC systems are supported by CAD/CAM capabilities, which allow for faster set ups with enhanced productivity. As an ISO 9001:2015 registered organization, quality is part of our culture; our team is dedicated to upholding quality and maintaining low-cost production.
