Construction Industry

Metal spinning and stamping are crucial fabricating processes. Stamping involves using a die to cut sheet metal into different shapes. A flat metal sheet is placed in a stamping press, where a tool and die to make the desired cut. Metal spinning involves rotating metal workpieces and cutting them into axially symmetrical parts. 5-axis laser cutting produces components that feature even highly complex geometries and is compatible with a diverse variety of substrates.

Metal spinning and stamping are especially important in the construction industry. Learn how Metal Craft serves this industry with parts throughout various steps of the construction process.

Metal Stamped Parts for the Construction Industry

This industry creates key infrastructure and residential and commercial buildings where people live, work, and play. These structures must endure aggressive use, heavy loads, and rugged environmental conditions. Fortunately, high-quality metal spinning and stamping offer the durability, resistance, and strength that buildings need to withstand such factors.

Examples of metal-formed parts common in construction include:

  • Lighting components
  • Switches and connectors
  • Brackets
  • Power tools
  • Shields
  • Roof wood truss systems
  • Floor wood truss systems
  • Panel fastening systems

Materials Used in the Construction Industry

Metal is durable, efficient, and requires minimal maintenance. That is why building owners, general contractors, architects, and designers prefer it over other materials for their projects. But each type of metal has unique properties, so you should choose them depending on the specific requirements of your project. Metal spinning tools may also differ depending on the type of metal. The following are the most common types of metals used in the construction industry.

aluminum Aluminum

This nonferrous metal has an excellent strength-to-weight ratio that enables the production of strong and durable components that are lightweight. Aluminum alloys are also more corrosion-resistant compared to other metals and usually don’t require an additional coating.


Stainless SteelStainless Steel

Stainless steel is highly durable and strong even in extreme temperatures. It contains varying levels of nickel, molybdenum, and chromium, which make it more corrosion-resistant than other types of steel.


Carbon Steel Carbon Steel

Carbon steel exhibits high strength and easy workability for metal spinning services. Although it is less resistant to corrosion than stainless steel, carbon steel is still highly durable with the right maintenance.



Copper is great for the quick production of single-piece seamless components using metal stamping or spinning tools. It is ideal if you are looking for a material with good flexibility, strength, corrosion resistance, durability, and conductivity.



This copper-zinc alloy is commonly used for metal parts in electronics. Its characteristics include a smooth surface, solderability, high conductivity, and high corrosion resistance.


Construction Industry Applications

Metal stamped parts have many applications within the construction industry. They are commonly used to make:

  • Brackets
  • Clips
  • Connectors
  • Custom assemblies
  • Dishwashers
  • Housings
  • HVAC systems
  • Industrial switches
  • Lighting
  • Panel fastening systems
  • Power tools
  • Refrigerators
  • Shields
  • Washer/dryer units
