If you have ever traveled on State Highway 188, you have likely seen the Theodore Roosevelt Lake Bridge, which connects Maricopa and Gila Counties. The steel-arched bridge spans 1,080 feet across Roosevelt Lake providing two-way traffic. Like most infrastructure – bridges, buildings, stadiums, etc. – the bridge’s 1990 construction would not have been possible without metal fabrication.
What is Metal Fabrication?
Metal fabrication refers to joining raw materials together to create cellular towers, heavy equipment, handrails and platforms, pressure vessels, and so much more. Licensed and experienced welders will prepare the metal using several techniques, such as cutting and bending, before fusing the materials to create the final product.
Industries such as aircraft, automotive, construction, utility, manufacturing, restaurant, transportation, mining, ranching, and agriculture rely on metal fabrication. Depending on the project’s requirements and scope, fabrication can occur in the field or shop. All products are fabricated according to your exact specifications to ensure project compatibility. If welded in the shop, the final product is then transported and assembled on site.
The benefits of fabricating equipment and products from raw metal, particularly steel, include:
- Accelerated construction
- Improved durability
- Aesthetic qualities
- Heat resistance
