Like Petey said, bus bars are not made of sheet metal.

Terminal strips are used to connect wires together. The connections are not commoned, that is many different wires of various function can be joined to the terminal strip. Buss bars in a panel function like a giant wire nut connecting all the wires as if they were one.
