What is Metal Fabrication and How Does It
Work? What is Metal Fabrication? When any metal
undergoes various processes to take the form of
structures or machines, it is known as Metal
Fabrication. It is the designing and
manufacturing of quality metal products
in accordance to specified
configurations. The standard processes of
metal fabrication include shearing using
shear blades, machining, welding, rolling,
grinding, etc. The computer controlled procedures
can be laser cutting, punching, bending,
and forming. Being automated by programming
codes, these procedures offer clear-cut
specifications along with precision. Metal
Fabrication is a value added process where
the value of the metal increases as it
undergoes various procedures. How does it
work? The Bidding Metal fabricators are
specialized in the field to execute the work
with utmost care and perfection. Most of the
large scale manufacturing units have in-house
fabricators. If not, they are frequently in
contact with other fabrication units, also
known as fab shops. Fabricators bid on jobs by
providing drawings and the whole plan of the
project. The work may vary from building of a
hand railing, machinery parts, to whole
structures for buildings. Once the agreement
is finalized, the real work starts. The
Planning Apposite skills and strategic planning
is required for the work. All the stages to be
executed are pre-planned and sorted. The raw
materials are ordered which commonly include
plate metal, formed metal, expanded metal,
welding wire, hardware, castings and fittings,
as is appropriate for the given work. Engineers

are also involved from the beginning
when the work is outsourced by a
manufacturing plant. Execution Fabrication
alters a mere heap of metals to high-end
machineries and building structures. The task
includes intricate procedures and is executed by
professionals. Firstly, the metal is cut using
tools like laser cutters, bandsaws, burn tables,
water jet cutters, CNC machines, etc. Another
process common during the fabrication is forming
or shaping of metals. The shape of the raw
material is modified using tools like punches or
dies under this process. Rolling machines and
tube bending machines are used for the making of
round sections of the metals. After the primary
processes, the task of compilation or assembling
is done. The product formed by the previous
process is welded together to get the desired
shape, size and functionality. The metal is
cooled down so that it can be sandblasted and
painted. The final product is tested for quality
assurance and shipped over to the client. To
ensure quality it is important to keep the
cutting tools in top working condition. For
example laser cutting machines should be
regularly serviced and all the laser parts and
consumables are regularly replaced.
