Priest Sheet Metal


We specialise in precision metal craftsmanship, offering CAD Drawing & Design, diverse folding capabilities, advanced technologies like Fibre Laser Cutting, and comprehensive services in Turret Punching, Plate & Ring Rolling, Steel Supply, and Welding & Fabrication....

CAD Drawing & Design

If you have a new design or you are recreating a product, our drawing office can create both 3D and 2D models for complex parts and assemblies.

Fully Integrated workshop from every aspect of the fabrication process, from material saving part nesting through to 3d folding and fabrication modelling.

Press Brake Folding

The most press brakes in the south island. Highly Accurate 7-axis 3D controllable metal pressing & 5 metre 350T Folding for quick and cost-effective folding of sheetmetal products. Large plate folding capacity for heavy plate and high tensile steels up to 5 metres in length. Our workshop is equipped with 6 hydraulic press brakes and a vast library of tooling for radius folding and difficult profiles.

Turret Punching

Cost-effective metal punching up to 16mm plate. Able to punch slots, louvers, and holes to a standard aperture or perforate to an architectural design from our library or per your design specs.

Turret punching is well suited to large production runs, is very precise, and is a lot quicker and cutting repetitive holes or shapes than laser cutting.
