We have many ongoing projects to reduce our environmental impact. Achieving the standard shows our Customers, Suppliers and Staff that we are taking our environmental responsibilities seriously and that PEM takes a long term sustainable view of our activities..."

PEM Sheet metal Ltd provides a complete and rapid service in subcontract laser cutting precision metal fabrication, enclosures, welding and light engineering.

We are advanced fine limit sheet metal fabricators, specialising in precision stainless, steel and aluminium fabrications from simple brackets through to complex metal enclosures, cabinets, custom lighting and architectural work. Typically for communications, medical, commercial or interior and exterior design applications.

We also produce heavier, sophisticated fabrications for the rail industry and the oil / petrochemical industries.

We use 3D CAD with advanced CNC laser cutting up to 5KW, CNC punching and forming and precision welding to manufacture your products to exacting requirements, and we do it fast.

We are equally happy to cater for multinationals or small businesses. PEM Sheet Metal has an extensive existing client base of prestigious companies spanning the all areas of the technology sector. Whether your requirements are for small batches, prototypes or larger production runs we can offer a rapid and flexible service to meet your exact requirements.

Based in Burnham on Crouch in Essex, England we offer a national delivery service throughout the UK. We also export to the European Union, Japan and the United States

PEM Sheet Metal maintains an advanced 3D CAD design capability. This is enables us to design products or engineer solutions that exactly match our customers needs and to provide photorealistic images of a design for evaluation before moving to production.

We employ the latest technologies and machinery to manufacture your products. We offer CNC Punching, CNC Laser Cutting / Profiling and CNC forming - these are interfaced directly to our CAD. PEM Sheet Metal has the largest sub contract precision welding capacity in Essex. We use state of the art TIG welding to produce complex fabrications and enclosures, and we offer coded welding equivalent to BS EN 287, BS EN 288 and ASME IX.  All stages of a product’s manufacturing process is tracked via our custom manufacturing database system so we can offer full Q.A. and traceability if required.

There is still a place in modern manufacturing for skilled artisans, especially when it comes to prototypes or smaller production runs, custom fabrication work or assemblies. PEM sheet metal employs some of the best with experience in all aspects of sheet metal work, metal enclosure manufacture and precision fabrications.  Stainless welding and aluminium welding in thin sheet metal is a specialist discipline and is a growing part of our business, we have the latest computerized inverter TIG welding equipment and highly skilled staff to ensure the highest quality results.

Featured Product

Smokeless Oil Burner Fabrication

PEM produces complex, high pressure stainless steel oil burners for use in the petrochemical industry. Our client requires the highest standards of procurement, manufacture and testing for these units.

These products, weighing hundreds of kilos are precise fabrications. They are welded to ASME IX (9) standards, assembled, pressure and leak tested.

We have manufactured these in quantity and they are shipped worldwide.

Subcontract Laser Cutting Service

PEM Sheet Metal offers a subcontract laser cutting and profiling service. To increase our capabilities and capacity PEM has installed a Trumpf 3050 laser cutting cell. This machine provides state of the art laser cutting and profiling in materials up to 25 mm thick and sheet sizes up to 3m x 1.5m or massing up to 1 ton. Due to the extremely powerful and controllable laser resonator (5000 watts), the precision assist gas system and advanced computer control, this machine provides perfectly clean cut edges on components even operating at extremely high speeds. To drive this laser cutter efficiently PEM has purchased Radan’s Advanced Nesting software. Together with our SolidWorks 3D CAD systems this enables the implementation of massively dissimilar part nesting, driven automatically by our computerized production control system. Commissioned in 2010 this machine compliments our existing CNC punch presses and CNC press brakes, providing burr free and accurate profiling for PEM’s sheet metal and fabricated components and as a stand alone sub contract laser cutting service.

PEM Sheet Metal provide class leading service to the electronics, medical and rail industries.

Sheet metal enclosure

Many of our customers are prestigious technology based companies. At PEM Sheet Metal we recognise that no matter how well a product performs, or whatever the technology inside, the first thing your customer sees is the enclosure. Your customer will perceive the quality of your product by it’s case work. We know that quality products require superior enclosures and panel work. After all, first impressions count.

Since 1999 PEM has instigated an ongoing series of practical measures to minimise our environmental impact. Please see our Environmental page for further information.

Please review our website. There are many images of various products we have produced for our clients but this is a very small fraction of what we have manufactured. Should you wish to discuss your particular requirements please contact us - you will get a quick, friendly and informed answer - and you may be surprised by just what we are able to do.

Whether your requirements are for brackets, sheet metal punching and forming, laser cutting and profiling, basic or advanced welding, through to custom electronics racks, fabrications, cases or sheet metal enclosure assemblies PEM Sheet Metal has the skills to meet your needs.
