At Thieman, we provide high-quality custom stainless steel fabricated parts all over the United States. Our precision metal fabrication techniques produce precision results with quick turnaround for industries of all kinds. We are stainless steel fabricators who excel in CNC Machining and Sheet and Plate Metal Fabrication. No matter if your next project small scale prototypes or large scale productions we will have you covered.
Stainless steel is made of steel mixed with a variety of different elements. This includes chromium, nickel, molybdenum, silicon, aluminum, and Carbon. Together, these elements create one of the most durable metals around. With so many valuable properties, stainless steel has been one of the most popular metals utilized for production use.
Resistant to Heat, Corrosion and Electricity
Known for its ferromagnetic properties, ferritic stainless steel is known for is ductility and resistance to stress corrosion cracking.
This mixture of carbon and chromium has ferromagnetic properties and increases in strength when heated. It is also less corrosion resistant than the other types of stainless steel.
Highly resistant to high temperatures, this mixture of nickel and chromium keeps its strength even through the hottest of temperatures.
This steel is formed by combining nickel, magnesium, and nitrogen. Together, austenitic stainless steel is high strength, ductile, and contains high resistance to high temperatures.
A combination of austenitic and ferritic steel, this combination provides a very strong corrosion resistant metal.
Machining Options for Stainless Steel Fabrication
CNC Milling – Our precision metal bending services are intended to bend sheet metal into various shapes such as a “V” or a “U” shape. At TMT Fab, our technicians use press-brake forming, swaging, rolling, and various other metal-bending solutions to deliver high-quality precision results.
CNC Turning – This process pieces away at a metal bar until it is formed into the desired shape.
CNC Punching – State of the art technology gives all our CNC machining equipment the benefits of increased production capacity, speed, and versatility all while providing exceptional results.
Laser Cutting – The ideal solution to burn, melt, cut, or vaporize small-medium sized metals to leave precise edges and high-quality surface finishes.
Metal Forming – This process aggressively bends metal sheets and plates between 90 tons and 175-250 tons. Our technician operated press brakes can make predetermined bends resulting in a variety of different shapes.
Metal Rolling – TMT’s custom plate rolling and sheet rolling machines can accurately roll steel and aluminum to almost any custom dimension, thickness, or specification, with enough speed to meet even high-volume production orders.
Metal Sawing – Our metal sawing capabilities allow us to precisely cut any shape, angle, bar, pipe, tubing, and channel with ease.
MIG & TIG Welding – These welding services produce high precision finished metals for a variety of different industries. MIG welding is great for producing high strength finished products, while TIG welding is typically used to weld thinner metals and requires precision and complex control.

Also called “Bead Blasting,” this finish creates a smooth matte appearance on metals.
Parts and applications may have an anodized finish for a wide variety of custom colors, which may include clear, black, gold, or desired custom colors.
Powder coating is a painting process where powdered paint is sprayed on a part or application prior to heating. The result is a strong layer that is more resistant to wear and corrosion.
This process also allows for a wide selection of colors for the further customization of color.
This layer of zinc coating provides protection from corrosion.
This three-step process coats fabricated metals in a bath of molten zinc, protecting it from corrosion.
A process that alters the physical and chemical properties of a metal, by heating it or cooling it to extreme temperatures to make the material harder or softer.
Using a pump, spray, or pressurized vessel, liquid paint is evenly applied to a part or application.
This dipping (immersion) process uses organic paint particles, where the paint based finish is able to stick on a metal surface with the help of electrical currents.
If a custom finish is required for an order, or the finish is not listed on our site, please include this information when requesting a quote. We can likely still complete the project.
Our quotes are designed to be competitive on pricing, and provide high turnaround times for project pricing. We’re able to provide 24-hour quotes, and complete most within the Same Day.
