What exactly is metal fabrication? On a larger scale, it is referencing any process that requires cutting, shaping or molding metal into a finalized product. This method of fabrication can be used for both custom and stock products to create a finished product that is coming from raw only semi-finished metal materials. Stock metals used by fabrications range from sheet metal, metal bars, metal billets and metal rods that all can be formed and produced into a new product altogether.
Welding and fabrication combined is joining together multiple pieces of metal and using heat and pressure to mold them together. Welding makes the fabrication easier and much more favored in the practice due to its ability to be shaped or sized into many forms to create specialized pieces. The four most popular welding techniques are: stick/Arc, M.I.G., TIG, and Flux Cored Arc.
Construction and Fabricated Steel
Construction is a crucial piece to our world development and it can be incredibly intricate with its many designs and growing industry. Due to this, these buildings must be built to remain structurally sound for centuries, considering all possible harsh environments or conditions. This means materials must pass stringent rests to ensure reliability and durability, making steel fabrication a preferred choice by most architects and foremen.
Fabrication provides the benefits of durability with water resistance while also being aesthetically pleasing to the eye. An addition to structural benefits, fabricated steel is also energy efficient and fully recyclable, making it a sustainable material to use as well. With little to no construction waste left behind, steel is a better controlled product and much safer for the environment.
