A leading name in steel fabrication

Operating in Heywood since 2003, Wayland Sheet Metal & Fabrications is well-equipped to take on metalwork projects of all sizes and complexities across Greater Manchester.


The Wayland way

From our manufacturing plant in Heywood, we can handle the entire process. Working in partnership with our customers we meet their exact requirements, from the initial CAD drawings to the fabrication, punching, bending and welding. We undertake all the production and finishing in-house, to give the quickest turnaround without jeopardising quality.


Our hard-earned reputation for quality stems from the calibre and training of our workforce. We retain our employees by developing their skills and recognising their abilities. This family run business supports a friendly working environment and close-knit team. Ultimately, this is of great benefit to our customers in every aspect of their dealings with us.


We are also pleased to confirm that phase two of our ongoing machinery and plant investment programme has now been completed. These additional services will benefit several areas of our operation.

Laser cutting

We have recently replaced our Trumpf TruLaser 3030 with a Trumpf Trulaser 3030 4kW Fiber Flying Optic Laser Cutting Machine which ensures we can provide an exceptional quality of cut to the most intricate design requirements. Our brand-new machine also comes with BrightLine fiber technology which gives us greater capacity to cut thicker materials at a much-improved speed.


Working area: X-axis: 3000mm, Y-axis: 1500mm, Z-axis: 115mm.

Material cutting capacities: Mild steel: 25mm, stainless steel: 20mm, aluminium: 20mm. *


*Manufacturers recommended capacities dependent upon grade and quality of material.

CNC bending

We have recently installed 2 brand-new Amada 100 tonne and 170 tonne press brakes. Our new machines come with Amada's ‘Instant Reactive Beam' for consistent accuracy and stop - start technology for reduced power consumption.


Model HFE M2 1003 - Force: 1000kN (100 tonnes), press beam length: 3110mm.

Model HFE M2 1703 - Force: 1070kN (170 tonnes), press beam length: 3110mm.

CNC punching

The installation of a Wiedemann CNC Centrum 3000 Turret Punch provides us with more options to handle your requirements. Whether it be in mild steel, stainless or aluminium and a batch run or something more bespoke, we have the solution.

Self-clinching fastener press

To meet the demands of our clients, we have recently installed a new Pemserter Series 4 Press. The Pemserter series 4 is completely pneumatic, provides 6 tonnes of force and has a 45.7cm throat depth which provides clearance for a variety of configurations. The press is designed to install self-clinching fasteners from M2 to M10 in steel and sizes up to M12 in aluminium.

Tube bending

The demand for tube bending has increased significantly at Wayland Sheet Metal & Fabrications. We have therefore invested in and installed a DB-39 Twin Head Tube Bender. The bending capacity for this machine is such that it will bend up to 38mm diameter x 2mm mild steel and stainless steel, subject to a maximum length of 3 metres.


We utilise TIG and MIG Welding facilities for light to medium fabrications up to 5 tonnes in weight. If required, we can also provide aluminium and stainless steel welding. As a business that takes great pride in providing a quality service, you won't be surprised to learn that all our welders are trained and qualified (coded to Lloyd's Standard).
