The fabrication processes producing sheet metal include stretching, bending, drawing, cutting and punching. To stretch the metal, the edges are clamped and the metal is pulled into the shape that is needed. Bending involves bending the metal over a straight axis. Drawing along with deep drawing are stamping procedures that make flat sheet metal into different three dimensional forms. Cutting is used to alter the size or shape of the sheet. Meanwhile punching is used to cut specific shapes out of the metal. All of these and other heat treating and fabricating processes make the metal being worked with its desired surface, size and shape.

Metal cabinets usually have a rectangular structure and come equipped with doors. They can also have various configurations of shelves or drawers.
