Sheet Metalwork Technology

Sheet Metalwork Technology

Sheet Metal workers transform a sheet of metal into lightweight structures for everyday use; for example, commercial kitchens in restaurants are almost entirely made from sheet metal.



Sheet Metal Work Technology covers a vast range of everyday products that the “world cannot do without”. From Domestic appliances, Medical equipment Automotive and Aerospace to Construction, Retail Shop fitting and catering, they all need the skills of a Sheet Metal Worker.
