PROTOTYPING & DESIGN DEVELOPMENT
Here at Hitherbest, we’ve learned a lot in our three decades of sheet metal fabrication. One thing that stands out is the benefit to our customers of us being able to offer the right support when it comes to prototyping and design development.
SHEET METAL BENDING & FOLDING
Bending is an essential step in the fabrication of most sheet metal products and, as you would expect, at Hitherbest we are specialists in this process.
SHEET METAL PUNCHING
Punching is often the most cost-effective solution for those looking to fabricate a product from sheet metal. At Hitherbest, we offer a flexible sheet metal punching service suited to customers that would like to work with us
Powder Coating is the ideal choice of finish for many products fabricated from sheet metal. During this process, a powder comprising pigment, resin and other agents is applied to grounded metal work by electrostatic spray deposition.
Laser cutting is ideal for creating fabrications with complex, curved or irregular edges and cut-outs. At Hitherbest we use an Amada Quattro 2.5kW laser, which is accurate to ±0.001mm.
